Oakland, California: Energy users will automatically receive the California Climate Credit earlier than usual in 2023. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) made the decision to distribute the credit as soon as possible, instead of the annual April time slot. 

This credit is a part of California's efforts to fight climate related issues. Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is pleased to administer the credit to help reduce energy bills of the users of the state. It will help offset higher than normal natural gas and electricity bills, which have been increasing due to higher demand and stronger natural gas supplies, especially on the West Coast.

For residential customers, the natural gas credit will be $52.78, and for electric residential customers, the credit will be $38.39. Users who receive both services will receive a total credit of $91.17.

"PG&E recognizes our responsibility to serve our customers safely and reliably while keeping their energy bills as low as possible. With the price PG&E pays for natural gas rising this year, this credit is great news for PG&E customers, who are likely noticing higher than average bills," said Vincent Davis, PG&E's Vice President of Customer Operations and Enablement.

The state thinks of the new power plants, natural gas providers and other big industries that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution permits from auctions managed by the California Air Resources Board. The California Climate Credit is users' share of the payments from the state's plan.

People do not need to do anything to receive the credit, it will automatically appear as an adjustment on a customer's bill under the adjustments section.
