PG&E’s Tiered Rate Plan (E1)


This rate plan has two pricing levels, known as “tiers,” which are based on how much energy you use. It also includes a High Usage Surcharge when your usage exceeds four times your Baseline Allowance, also known as Tier 1.

Tier pricing starts low each billing period, then increases slightly for the following tiers
