PG&E’s Rule 24 program provides customers the power to control their electricity usage

This program has two objectives: To help customers reduce their electricity usage and to help the State achieve its greenhouse gas emissions reductions goals. Under Rule 24, customers enroll in programs offered by third-party Demand Response Providers (DRPs). These programs offer incentives for customers to reduce electric consumption during times of peak demand.

Requirements for participation

  • Have an electric service account within the PG&E territory
  • Have a Smart Meter
  • Authorize PG&E to share your electric usage data with the third- party DRP of your choice
  • Cannot be enrolled in a PG&E demand response program (such as Smart Rate, Smart AC, CBP, and PDP) and enrolled with a third-party DRP during the same time period
