Public Electricity Coming Soon to Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Palm Desert

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 sources electricity at the direction of our member cities and feeds it into the grid. Southern California Edison manages delivery, infrastructure, and service. Customers get cleaner electricity at competitive rates.
