Apple Valley is making a change for the better starting April 1, 2017. This is when Apple Valley Choice Energy (AVCE) will become the Town’s primary energy provider, giving residents and businesses the power to choose lower, stable energy rates, cleaner energy and local control.
AVCE has collaborated with Southern California Edison (SCE) to ensure you receive this cleaner power through SCE’s existing lines and just one bill, which includes charges for both AVCE’s power and SCE’s services. SCE will also maintain the lines and respond to any outages which may occur, as they do now. SO you get the best of both providers: cleaner, more cost-effective power under local control and the convenience of a single source for billing and service requests.
Residents will begin receiving 35% renewable content and low costs through AVCE’s Core Choice program. You also have the option of moving up to More Choice, with 50% renewable content. The Your Choice program allows those generating renewable power on site to continue in a program similar to SCE’s net zero metering. Because the choice is in your hands, if you prefer to stay with SCE, you can opt out of AVCE programs entirely.
