About 30,000 Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) customers in San Mateo County will automatically receive $100 credit toward their April bill.
PCE’s Board of Directors on Thursday unanimously approved the one-time, on-bill credit for customers covered under California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) or Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) rate plans as of March 20. Customers already on the CARE or FERA rate plans as of March 20 do not need to take any action to receive the automatic bill credit.
“With many of our customers facing shuttered workplaces and heightened anxiety about paying their bills, we hope this can provide some support during this difficult time,” Peninsula Clean Energy CEO Jan Pepper said.
Those interested in qualifying for CARE’s monthly discount of at least 20 percent on gas and electricity or FERA’s monthly discount of 18 percent on electricity can learn more and apply on PG&E’s website.
