PG&E extends solar to everyone with new Solar Choice program
Launched earlier this year, PG&E’s new Solar Choice program extends the option for 100 percent solar power to all residential and business customers who are not planning to install solar panels. For a modest charge, customers can purchase half or all of their electric power from solar energy locally sourced in Northern and Central California.
Approximately half of U.S. households and businesses are unable to install rooftop solar due to space, lack of sun exposure or ownership limitations. PG&E’s Solar Choice program extends solar access to business and residential customers regardless of their location or ability to physically install solar panels. As the program develops, the solar energy purchased by customers will be sourced from new solar projects built by developers across PG&E’s service area, bringing new green jobs to Northern and Central California.
Businesses can learn more about the program online, where they can also access an online tool to help estimate the cost associated with signing up for PG&E’s Solar Choice. Business customers can enroll by calling the dedicated customer service line at 877-743-8429.
