Desert Community Energy offers customers easy options. We’ll automatically enroll you in our rate-saving electricity service. If you want to go greener or stay with SCE, it’s easy.
DCE’s standard product, Desert Saver, will make it easy for our customers to reduce their carbon footprints. It has 35% renewable content and 50% carbon-free content, which is higher than what SCE offers, and at competitive rates.
DCE’s premium product, Carbon Free, has a higher renewable content than SCE (at 50%) and is 100% carbon-free. That means a real reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, allowing our customers to take a much bigger bite out of climate change and air pollution. The City of Palm Springs decided to launch with this option as the default for the entire city, effectively reducing their community's carbon footprint by over 25% with one single action.
Or, you can choose to remain with SCE — which means opting out of Desert Community Energy. If you do so, you may be paying more for electricity and getting less — and there may be a higher percentage of fossil fuels in the mix.
