Agriculture customers will need to provide an electric rate when applying for service.
Review Agriculture rate plans

For help determining the best rate, refer to the What If Tool. All customers who meet the definition of 'Qualification for Agriculture Rates' are required to receive electric service on an agriculture rate. Agriculture customers may also call the PG&E Agriculture Customer Service Center at 1-877-311-3276 for more information on selecting rates.
