*Why do I have to pay a convenience fee?


PG&E has partnered with an independent payment provider to provide you with the option of using your credit card or electronic check to make payments. The convenience fee is charged by an independent payment provider. California Assembly Bill 746 (AB 746, enacted in 2005) does not allow energy companies, including PG&E, to pass on these costs to all customers. Only customers who choose to use this service will be charged the convenience fee.
