You Need an Electric Account for Your Site
You are interested in either our Standard Net Energy Metering program or our Expanded Net Energy Metering program but don’t currently have a PG&E electric account under your name for the address of the generating facility. You must have an established PG&E electric account for the address of your generating facility under your name before we can set up your Net Energy Metering account. Note that, for buildings under construction, the building contractor may set up a temporary account to supply power to the site. This temporary account cannot be converted to a Net Energy Metering account. The building owner (or occupant) still has to establish an appropriate account for the address under his or her name. If you haven’t already, please contact our Service Planning Department about setting up an electric account. Call 1 (800) PGE-5000 for the appropriate number.
If you have an electric account with an Electric Service Provider other than PG&E, you must contact your provider about the net energy metering programs they provide.
For more information on setting up a new electric account, see our New Construction Services page.
If your new account will have a Medium General Demand or Agricultural rate schedule, you will be interested in our Expanded Net Energy Metering program.
Otherwise you will be interested in our Standard Net Energy Metering program.
