Peak Day Pricing Is Here

Make the choice that's right for your business now.

Note that if you don't opt in or opt out before your scheduled transition date, your business will automatically transition to Peak Day Pricing, as required by the California Public Utilities Commission.

What Is Peak Day Pricing?

Peak Day Pricing is a PG&E program that gives businesses a discount on regular summer electricity rates in exchange for higher prices on 9-15 Event Days per year—typically the hottest days of the summer.* By using less electricity on Peak Day Pricing Event Days when the power grid is under the most strain, you help keep California's energy supply reliable for everyone—plus your business could save money.

There are 9-15 Peak Day Pricing Event Days per year.
Your regular rate is discounted from May 1st-October 31st.* On Event Days, a surcharge is added to your regular time-of-use rate during the peak period of 2-6 p.m.
We'll send you an alert the day before an Event Day so you can plan ahead to conserve or shift your energy usage.
Participate risk-free for the first 12 months with Bill Protection. If you pay more during your first year on Peak Day Pricing, we will credit you the difference. You can also opt out of Peak Day Pricing at any time.

*Effective summer rates are lower after Peak Day Pricing credits have been applied, but effective rates are higher during Peak Day Pricing Event hours.
