Filling Out Forms

You can fill out certain forms in .pdf documents in Acrobat Reader if you are viewing .pdf documents in your Web browser window. Alternately, you may print the form to fill it out off-line or to have for reference. Please use Adobe's print function, by selecting the button to the far left of the Adobe toolbar immediately above the document, rather than using the browser's Print function.

You cannot submit these forms online. You will need to print out the form, sign it, and mail or fax it to Pacific Gas and Electric Company.

To fill out the form online

  1. Select the hand tool from the Acrobat toolbar.
  2. Position the cursor inside a form field. The I-beam cursor allows you to type text; the arrow cursor allows you to select the field, checkbox, radio button, or a choice from a list.
  3. After entering text or selecting an item, checkbox, or radio button, press tab to accept the entered data and go to the next field in the page. Use the scrollbar to move from one page to the next.
  4. Once you have filled in the appropriate fields, use the Acrobat print function to print out the document.

To clear a form in a browser window: Exit the Acrobat viewer and start again.

Note: Selecting the Reload or Back button in the browser does not clear the form.
