If you're like me and run well into 100-300% of PG&E's above baseline usage, you've been paying handsomely for electricity for years now.

Starting July 1 PG&E will be running E1 customers (most residential) on a flat rate. There will be no more tiers to pay for. Since Marin Clean Energy's rates are 46% lower than PG&E's baseline, and you're getting 50% of your juice from renewable sources What's not to love!?

You can take it one step further, by joining MCE's Deep Green program – 100% renewable juice – No Coal, No NatGas. Only renewables. The cost? 1 cent per kilowatt hour more than .069.   To learn more, visit www.marincleanenergy.info/.

According to the Mill Valley Herald "A record number of Mill Valley kindergartners have enrolled for the next school year and officials are not
