This section describes the service period and confirms the address at which electricity is received. Your service agreement ID number is different from your account number. A service agreement documents your particular arrangement with PG&E (including rate plan). This section also includes your rate schedule information, which identifies the type of utility service you receive and how PG&E calculates your bill.
- Customer charge: Customers on certain rate plans are charged a fixed fee for service, regardless of the amount of energy consumed, as well as volumetric charges.
- Meter Charge: Customers on some time-of-use electric rates are assessed a meter charge to recover the additional equipment costs of providing customers with this type of service.
- Energy charges: Understanding your electric charges starts with understanding kilowatt hours (kWh). Kilowatt hours are the units used to measure your electric use. You are billed based on how much electricity, in kWh, you use each month.
State and local governments may place taxes on your energy use.
The total charges for your electric use, including any credits and applicable taxes.
This daily usage chart visually shows which days you used the most electricity this month.
The meter at your business tracks your electricity usage. Your Prior Meter Reading indicates the reading on the meter at the beginning of the billing period, and your Current Meter Reading indicates the reading at the end of the billing period. Your Total Usage is the difference between these two readings.
If relevant, PG&E uses this space to share timely information, ranging from summer safety tips to regulatory updates.
