Power Content Labels (PDF)

The Power Content Label is part of the California Energy Commission‘s annual reporting requirements. The Energy Commission describes it as: “You can think of the power content label as a ‘nutrition label’ for electricity. The power content label provides information about the energy resources used to generate electricity that is put into the power grid. Just as a nutrition label provides information about the food you eat, the power content label provides information about your electricity sources.”

Joint Rate Mailers (PDF)

Every summer PG&E and Community Choice Energy providers, including SJCE, send customers a joint rate mailer (JRM) comparing the providers’ rates and power mix for the previous year.

Safety alert: Possible Rolling Power Outages

Due to the strain on the power grid during this excessive heat, the CA Grid Operator may call for rolling power outages. To lessen the stress on the electrical grid, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. avoid using large appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers. Set the A/C to 78 degrees or higher if health permits. Turn off unneeded lights and close blinds and curtains.

Prepare for power outages by charging your devices and having a flashlight on hand.

During an outage, avoid opening your refrigerator to keep food cold. If traffic lights are out, treat intersections as 4-way stops.

The City of San José has activated 3 Cooling Centers Friday-Sunday, August 14-16 from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Camden Community Center, Mayfair Community Center and Roosevelt Community Center. Residents who visit a cooling center must follow all county guidelines.
