Discover how Budget Billing works

Following are Budget Billing details:

  • Small business customers on a PG&E A1, A6 or GNR1 rate schedule may qualify for Budget Billing. Here’s how it works: Energy costs from the last 12 months average into a monthly payment amount. If your actual energy usage changes over 12 months, then your monthly payment adjusts once every four months.
  • After you enroll, the program takes effect on your next billing cycle.
  • You may enroll at no charge, and you can join or stop at any time.
