What Are My Rates?

Have you noticed Peninsula Clean Energy on your PG&E bill? That’s how you know you are getting cleaner energy at lower rates. It is not an additional charge. Charges for electricity on your PG&E bill are now simply divided into two parts:

  • Peninsula Clean Energy Electric Generation Charges for generating the amount of electricity you use. Customers receive a 5% savings for ECOplus compared to PG&E’s electricity generation rates.
  • Current PG&E Electric Delivery Charges for maintaining PG&E’s wires, infrastructure, and delivering electricity to your home. These rates are the same for Peninsula Clean Energy and non-Peninsula Clean Energy customers.

You receive a credit on your bill from PG&E for electricity generation, since Peninsula Clean Energy is now generating your electricity instead of PG&E.


Discount Rates

Customers enrolled in Peninsula Clean Energy still receive their full CARE/FERA and Medical Baseline discounts. There’s no need to reapply, and there is no change in the discount rates. Learn more about discounts on our Lower Your Bill Page.
