As a PG&E customer, you can choose between several rate plans, including two new plans that are based on how much energy you use and when you use it. By shifting some of your electricity use to lower-priced times, when demand for energy is generally lower, you can lower your bill and support a healthier environment.

On Time-of-Use rate plans, the price of energy depends on the time of day. Prices are lower when demand for energy is generally lower and the cost to supply energy is less expensive. These rate plans are best for customers who can be flexible about when they use energy. There are two Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plans available to you:
This rate plan offers lower prices during periods of the day when energy costs are lower—before 3 p.m. and after 8 p.m. on weekdays,* and during all hours on weekends and most holidays.
