Climate Credit from State Program Will Lower Bills this Month

- Publicidad -

More than 5 million Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) electric customers will automatically receive the California Climate Credit on their energy bill this month. The credit was created by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) as part of the state’s efforts to fight climate change. PG&E is pleased to administer the credit in a timely manner to help reduce customer energy bills this month.

In addition to residential customers, eligible business customers will be receiving the California Climate Credit for the first time.

Residential electric customers will receive a credit of $39.30 on their October bills, compared to last fall’s credit of $17. This is the second credit of the year for residential households. In April, natural gas residential customers received a credit of $47.83 and electric residential customers received a credit of $39.30.

Customers with both services saw a total credit of $87.13 in April so including the October credit of $39.30, the total credit for this year will be more than $126.

For the first time, small business electric customers also will receive a credit of $39.30. Eligible small business customers might receive double the credit amount if they qualify for both 2022 (April and October) credits. Starting in 2023, eligible business customers will receive the credit twice a year along with residential customers.

The California Climate Credit is one of many programs developed as part of the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. It requires power plants, natural gas providers, and other large industries that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution permits. This credit represents customers’ share of the payments from the state’s program.

Additional Ways to Reduce Energy Bills

PG&E offers various programs to help customers save money and energy.

Smart devices also can help customers manage energy use and costs. This year, new participants in PG&E’s SmartAC program receive $75 for existing thermostats or $120 off a purchase of a new thermostat. The voluntary program helps enhance grid reliability by encouraging participants to shift energy use out of the hours when it’s most in demand.
