Time-of-Use Rate Plans
Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plans are electric rate plans in which the price of electricity varies by time of day. Prices are highest during peak hours on weekday afternoons when demand is higher. In return, rates are lower than the peak rate at other times.

Commercial Rate 2015

Small General Time-of-Use Service (A-1) is for customers whose peak monthly demand consistently remains less than 75 kW or with usage of 150,000 kWh or less per year.

Small General Time-of-Use Service (A-6) is for customers whose peak monthly demand consistently remains less than 500 kW. This rate includes:

  • Higher prices on summer weekday afternoons compared to A-1 rates
  • Slightly lower off-peak kWh charges than A-1 rates

Medium General Time-of-Use Service (A-10) is for customers whose peak monthly demand consistently remains under 500 kW each month. This rate includes:

  • A Demand Charge based on the maximum load, expressed in kilowatts, or kW
  • Higher customer meter charge than A-1 TOU
  • Lower kWh TOU energy charges than A-1 TOU

Medium General Demand-Metered Service (E-19V) is an optional plan for customers whose peak monthly demand is less than 500 kW. This rate includes:

  • A Demand Charge based on the maximum load, expressed in kilowatts, or kW
  • Higher customer meter charge than A-1 TOU
  • Time-of-use demand charges
  • Lower kWh TOU energy charges than A-1 TOU or A-10 TOU

E-19, E-19V and E-20 may voluntarily select (Option R) if you have or are installing solar generators whose output is above 15 percent of either your last 12 months of pre-solar annual electric usage (for new solar) or your annual electric usage plus annual solar generator's output (for existing solar).

  • Includes an increase of the on-peak and part-peak TOU energy charges
  • Offers lower on-peak and part-peak TOU demand charges

Customers over 499 kW will automatically transition to E-19 TOU and those over 999 kW will automatically transition to E-20 TOU rates.

Natural Gas Services

At PG&E your rate plan is determined by the level of service you need and the amount of gas used per month.

Small Commercial (G-NR1) is a rate plan for customers that use less than 20,800 therms per month. You choose who supplies your natural gas, PG&E or a third-party gas supplier.

Large Commercial (G-NR2) is a rate plan for customers that use more than 20,800 therms per month during the last 12 months for those months which exceed 200 therms. You choose who supplies your natural gas, PG&E or a third-party gas supplier.

If you choose a third-party gas supplier, PG&E will continue to transport and deliver gas to your home or business with the same high level of safety, reliability and service that we provide to all of our customers regardless of which gas supplier you choose.
