Need Help with PG&E Bills?

PG&E and its partners have programs that may be able to help.

 

One-time Assistance

You can get help in the following ways:

 

l You can get help in the following ways: Receive a one-time energy credit for up to $300 through the Relief for Energy Assistance through Community Help (REACH) Program (energy credit support is subject to funding availability). This program helps you pay for energy when a sudden hardship occurs. PG&E sponsors REACH and Dollar Energy Funds runs the program from 170 offices in Northern and Central California. Visit REACH (Relief for Energy Assistance through Community Help).

PLEASE NOTE: REACH is available only once within a 12-month period and customer must qualify for the program.

l Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides up to $1,000 in financial assistance to pay your eligible household energy costs including your bill for heating, cooling and home weatherization expenses. Program eligibility is based on federal income guidelines. Call 211 or (866) 675-6623 for income guidelines and a list of participating agencies who can help you apply.

LIHEAP is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Community Services.

Longer-Term Assistance

Following are ways to cut expenses and conserve energy:

 

  • Even out the highs and lows of your monthly bills with Budget Billing. With the plan, your bills are about the same throughout the year, even in hot or cold weather. Learn about Budget Billing.

 

  • Save 20 percent or more on your monthly gas and electric bill by enrolling in the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) Program. Learn about CARE.

 

  •  Get a monthly discount on your electric bill if your household has three or more people. Enroll in the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) Program.  Learn about FERA.
  • Receive help if you’re a customer with special energy needs related to a medical condition. PLEASE NOTE: This program is not based on income. Apply for a Medical Baseline Allowance. Learn about Medical Baseline Allowance.

 

  •  PG&E's Green Saver Program enables income-qualified residential customers in select communities to save 20% on their electricity bill by subscribing to 100% solar energy. Visit the Green Saver Program.

 

Energy Reduction & Weatherization

 

Improve the energy efficiency of your home with no-cost upgrades such as lighting, weatherization, water-saving measures and more by enrolling in the Energy Savings Assistance Program. Visit Energy Savings Assistance Program.

  • Help for heating or cooling homes.
  • Help for weatherproofing homes.

 

Certain customers are higher priority:

 

  • Families who spend a large part of their income on energy.
