Cleaner Electricity

Transparent Rates

Local Control

Your Public Electricity Provider in Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Palm Desert.

In the Coachella Valley, community and environment are top priorities. That’s why three Coachella Valley cities formed a path toward cleaner, greener energy at competitive rates, allowing us to improve air quality and reinvest in locally at the same time. Desert Community Energy is the POWER of Choice, putting people in charge and keeping revenue here at home.

DCE is evaluating a launch date that maximizes the benefits to our customers.

How it works

Desert Community Energy sources cleaner electricity and feeds it into the grid, partnering with Southern California Edison to deliver it and manage the lines, poles, and customer service. That means you get cleaner electricity at competitive rates —and you don’t have to do a thing to join. Enrollment in the program is automatic.

The choice is yours


Our automatic rate-saving service will give you cleaner electricity—35% renewable and 50% carbon-free—at competitive rates.


Or you can choose our premium service—100% carbon-free—if you want to reduce your carbon footprint even more.
The cost is identical to SCE’s current rates.

You may also Opt Out if you prefer, but you'll miss out on lower rates and cleaner electricity.


Can I be part of it?

Desert Community Energy is gearing up to launch in 2020, starting with residential and commercial customers in Palm Springs. 

Desert Community Energy's Community Advisory Committee advises our Board on everything from operations and policy to outreach and education to programs the make clean energy affordable and accessible to all.

How do I apply?

Great news—there’s no application needed. If you have an SCE account in Palm Springs, Cathedral City or Palm Desert, you’ll be automatically included when we launch, as Desert Community Energy will become the default electricity provider for these 3 cities at that time.

You can always opt up to our premium, 100% carbon-free product, or opt out to stay with SCE. Or call toll free (855) 357-9240.
