Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) recently launched eHub, a set of online resources the Sunnyvale-based nonprofit designed to help customers make easy, informed choices about how to lower their carbon footprint.

The eHub, at, provides residents of the cities it serves with information and tools to make the switch to clean energy providers.

Pages are dedicated to helping customers choose energy-efficient appliances and find qualified installers; compare models, range and other features of electric vehicles, locate charging stations and identify available rebates; and evaluate and install renewable and resilient power options.

“While Silicon Valley Clean Energy already supplies clean electricity from carbon-free sources to most households in our area, customers have indicated they want to do even more to fight climate change,” SVCE CEO Girish Balachandran said in a statement. “There is a lot of information out there, and it can be difficult to sort through. With eHub, we want consumers to be empowered to make decisions that will improve their quality of life while also lowering their carbon footprint.”

As a community choice energy agency, SVCE was formed by 13 communities—including Campbell, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas, Monte Sereno, Saratoga and Sunnyvale—to fight climate change locally.
