Frequently Asked Questions
Why Opt Up?
When you opt up, you're supporting clean energy generation in California. Your home will be powered by 100% renewable electricity, meaning that there's no greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) associated with your electricity use.
What is a Community Choice Aggregator (CCA)?
Local governments all over California have established Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs. These not-for-profit organizations allow local communities to control how their electricity is sourced. Look at your PG&E bill to see if you are a CCA customer (it will be a line item for your electric service).

Can I Opt Up through PG&E?
Yes. PG&E offers a “Solar Choice” upgrade option to its customers.
How much does Opting Up cost?
Cost varies by energy usage, but for the average Bay Area residential customer upgrading to 100% renewable energy costs about $5-10 per month - about the cost of a latte!
