Note: On September 15, 2022, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued Decision (D.) 22-09-026 (PDF, 2.9 MB) that eliminates allowances, refunds and the discount option for residential gas customers effective July 1, 2023. Customers who would like to take advantage of the currently-authorized allowances (credits) and the 10-Year Refundable Payment Option or the 50 percent discount option must submit their application for new natural gas line service to PG&E by June 30, 2023. Non-Residential new business customers that meet certain CPUC-determined criteria may be part of an annual application to receive Allowances, Refunds and 50% Discount option approval.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), offers several gas service options for our customers, including elevated gas delivery pressure at customer facilities in qualifying locations. When we receive a request for elevated gas delivery pressure, we work with the customer and perform a gas system evaluation to determine whether elevated pressure service is available at their location. Please note, elevated gas pressure is offered at PG&E’s discretion and, when available, may increase the cost of delivery at some locations, special facilities charges may apply as detailed in PG&E’s Gas Rule 2.
We work to provide reliable elevated gas delivery pressure to our customers. However, Gas Rule 2 allows us to reduce service to standard delivery pressure if we determine that higher gas delivery pressure is no longer available or that it negatively affects our gas delivery system.
