Direct Access service is currently capped at the authorized maximum annual total giga-watt hours.
2018 Wait List
PG&E will be accepting Six Month Notices to Transfer to Direct Access Service (Forms No. 79-1117 and 79-1095, if applicable) from 9 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) June 12, 2017, until 5 p.m. PDT June 16, 2017. All accepted Six Month Notices will be entered into a lottery to determine their random numerical position on the 2018 Wait List for any load that becomes available.
If Direct Access load becomes available, customers on the 2018 Wait List (those who entered in the 2017 DA Lottery) may begin switching to DA Service in January 2018. Should DA load continue to be available under the Overall DA Load Cap, and depending on their 2018 Wait List position, customers may be eligible to switch to DA Service through December 2018.
PG&E's forms are now available in a fillable PDF format, which allows you to fill out the required fields directly into the form using your computer. Be sure to save your form before you start. When you're done you can then print your completed form(s), sign as required and submit the form(s).

A separate Six Month Notice must be completed for each Federal Taxpayer Identification Number.
