VCE launched services on June 1, 2018 and provides electricity to customers located within the Cities of Woodland, Davis, and Winters, and the unincorporated areas of Yolo County.

In December 2016, prior to the launch of VCE, the City Council established an ad hoc citizen advisory committee to assist with the evaluation of program benefits and risks, provide recommendations regarding program participation, and serve as a forum for public input. Regular meetings were held every other week from January 2017 through April 2017 and were open to the public. On April 18, 2017, the advisory committee recommended to City Council that Woodland take immediate steps to request VCE membership in time to be included in its launch, as discussed in the committee's Report and Recommendation to City Council (PDF).
