California Climate Credit Helps PG&E Customers Transition to Low-Carbon Future


PG&E Residential Customers Will Receive a $38.39 Bill Credit

OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second time this year, more than five million Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) customers will automatically receive the California Climate Credit on their energy bill.

The California Climate Credit is part of California's efforts to combat climate change and distributed by PG&E to customers. This credit is from the California Cap-and-Trade Program, which requires power plants, fuel providers, and large industrial facilities that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution allowances. The credit on your bill is designed to help utility customers during the transition to a low-carbon future.

Residential electric households will receive a credit of $38.39 on their October bills, the same amount provided during March. Residential natural gas households also received a credit of $52.78 earlier this year. Combined-use customers' total bill credits for 2023 is $129.56.

Residential households receive the electric credit two times each year, while the natural gas credit is issued once a year. Eligible small business customers receive the same electric credit, in the same amount as residential customers, twice a year.
