Your Locally Controlled Electricity Provider Offering Clean Energy
Community and environment are top priorities in Coachella Valley. That’s why Palm Springs, Cathedral City, and Palm Desert formed Desert Community Energy to provide cleaner, greener energy at transparent rates. Together, we will improve the environment and reinvest in our communities.
How It Works
Desert Community Energy purchases electricity on behalf of the residents and businesses enrolled in the program. Southern California Edison (SCE) delivers your electricty and maintains the lines as it always has and you still get a single monthly bill from SCE.
The Choice Is Yours
100% carbon-free & 50% renewable — will provide significantly cleaner energy to save the planet.
Compared to SCE, the Desert Saver plan is your lower cost choice.
How Do I Join Desert Community Energy?
You don't have to. If you are a Palm Springs resident or business, you will automatically be enrolled in our Carbon Free plan. This energy is the best way to reduce your carbon footprint and help our climate crisis because it is 100% carbon-free and 50% renewable. You also may opt down to our Desert Saver plan which provides significantly less green energy than our Carbon Free plan at a lower cost.
To get involved with Desert Community Energy now, consider joining our Community Advisory Committee.
