Some customers receive PG&E service at multiple locations. This section indicates which property incurred the charges in this statement.


3. Your Budget Billing Summary

Under the Budget Billing, your total amount due is based on your average energy charges during the past 12 months. Although a more detailed breakdown of your usage and payments is available on your energy statement, you are required to pay only the amount due.
