Business Customers

You may save money by selecting a different rate schedule

Gas Supplier Option

G-CT Core Gas Aggregation Service. Gas customers may select an alternative gas supplier, who may be able to provide gas pricing or billing services that meet your needs. Under this option, PG&E continues the same reliable gas delivery and service response, but gas is supplied by an independent party. PG&E encourages customers to explore this energy supply option. Information and a list of suppliers is available at www.pge.com/gaschoice.

Gas Rate Option For Larger Users

G-NT Gas Transportation Service to Noncore End-Use Customers. If your average monthly use over the past 12 months has exceeded 20,800 therms, excluding those months during which usage was 200 therms or less, your business can elect noncore (less firm) delivery service, with lower gas delivery rates.
