Low rates are just one of the reasons to be happy with your service from Silicon Valley Power. That's because SVP provides electricity that is not only highly reliable, but environmentally friendly as well. By offering power from a variety of sources, we are able to reduce the impact on the environment and provide clean energy to all of our customers. Even better, beginning in January 2018, Silicon Valley Power provides 100% carbon-free power to all residential customers. This will be reflected in our power content label in the coming years. The chart below shows a breakdown of different types of power supplied to SVP's customers.
SVP’s 2016 power mix consisted of 28 percent eligible renewable resources. When large hydroelectric resources are included, SVP’s power mix was 52 percent Greenhouse Gas (GHG) free.
What is the Power Content Label?
California State legislation (SB 1305) requires all energy service providers, such as Silicon Valley Power, to annually inform their customers of the source of power they are being sold. Such information is provided in the form of a Power Content Label. Think of the Power Content Label as a “nutrition label” for electricity. This label provides reliable information about the energy resources used to generate electricity, enabling you to easily compare the power “content” of one electricity product with that of another.
