City leaders from San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay "flipped the switch" Thursday over to Monterey Bay Community Power.

MBCP is now the primary electricity provider for those two cities.

The agency sources energy from clean and renewable sources. However, PG&E will continue to deliver your power and maintain the transmission lines.

"You'll still get your bill from PG&E but you'll have a new page that has lower generation charges with Monterey Bay Community Power so when you look at the total cost of what you're going to pay on a monthly basis, it's actually going to be less than what you were paying a few months ago with PG&E services," said JR Killigrew, Director of Communications and Energy Programs for Monterey Bay Community Power.

Killigrew says residential customers can expect a savings of about $3-$10 per month.

Customers may choose to opt-out and continue their PG&E service. Click here for more information.
