An Affordable Energy Future
At PG&E, our customers enjoy some of the lowest energy bills in the nation because of ongoing work in energy efficiency. Overall, estimates show Californians have saved more than $56 billion since the institution of energy efficiency policies and utility-directed programs, which began in the 1970s. In 2013-2014, PG&E paid nearly $276 million in energy saving incentives to residential and business customers to help them use less energy.
Today, we are the national leader in helping customers adopt solar technology, with rooftop solar growing by more than 4,000 customers a month. Nearly one of every four solar rooftops in America are located right here in our northern and central California service area.
Our California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) Program helps lower energy bills for nearly 1.4 million customers. We’ve been offering other financial assistance to low-income customers, such as the Energy Saving Assistance (ESA) Program, with free, easy home improvements to help keep their homes more energy efficient, safe and comfortable.
At PG&E, we’re using our experience and our day-to-day relationships with millions of customers to build the 21st century infrastructure and clean energy future that California needs.
