Direct Access service is currently capped at the authorized maximum annual total giga-watt hours.
PG&E will be accepting Six Month Notices to Transfer to Direct Access Service (Forms No. 79-1117 and 79-1095, if applicable) from 9 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) June 8, 2020, until 5 p.m. PDT June 12, 2020. All accepted Six Month Notices will be entered into a lottery to determine their random numerical position on the 2021 Wait List for any load that becomes available.
If Direct Access load becomes available under the expanded Overall DA Load Cap (11,393 GWh) established by Senate Bill (SB) 237, customers who entered in the 2020 DA Lottery and are offered load space may begin switching to Direct Access on or after January 1, 2022. Customers who are not extended offers of load space will be placed on a Wait List (2021 Wait List). The 2021 Wait List will be in effect from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.
*If DA load becomes available under the pre-SB 237 DA Allocation Cap (9,520 GWh), this DA load space will be offered to customers on the 2020 Wait List.

The Six Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access Service is a binding document. It may be rescinded within three (3) business days (of PG&E’s receipt) by contacting PG&E's Third Party Relations Team at 415-973-6479.
A completed Six-Month Notice may cover multiple service acounts but they must all be for the same customer, under that customers’s Federal Tax Identification Number (FTIN) or other PG&E customer identifiers.
No. Since these are binding documents, the dates provided on the Six Month Notice and Customer Authorization Form must be appropriate for the current submission period. PG&E will not accept any Six Month Notice with a date of July 1, 2019 or earlier.
The customer will have fifteen (15) business days to accept or decline the DA transfer opportunity, without penalty. If the Customer declines the opportunity, the Six Month Notice will be removed from the 2021 Wait List and the SA IDs will remain on PG&E's bundled service.
