Peninsula Clean Energy announced that its electricity will be 100 percent greenhouse gas-free by January 2021.

PCE has major rebates for purchasing or renting an electric vehicle (EV):
  • $1000 rebate for first-time purchases of a new electric vehicle, or a $700 rebate on a new plug-in hybrid vehicle, stackable on top of other incentives, through December 31
