16. Details of electric charges: Includes your rate

This section describes the service period and confirms the address at which electricity was received. Your service agreement ID number is different from your account number. A service agreement documents your particular arrangement with PG&E (including rate plan). This section also includes your rate schedule information, which identifies the type of utility service you receive and how PG&E calculates your bill.


17. Electricity usage: Notes your electricity usage during a given timeframe

  • Understanding your electric charges starts with understanding kilowatt hours (kWh). Kilowatt hours are the units used to measure your electric use. You are billed based on how much electricity, in kWh, you use each month.
  • Energy that is used during 'peak' hours is charged at a higher rate than energy that is used during 'part peak' and 'off peak' hours.


18. Credits and Taxes: Account information that may affect your total charges

Both state and local governments may place taxes on your energy use.


19. Total electric charges: Total electricity charges, including credits and taxes

The total charges for your electric use, including any credits and applicable taxes.


20. Daily usage chart: Shows you when you used the most energy this month*

This daily usage chart visually shows which days you used the most electricity this month, and how much energy you used at peak, part peak and off peak rates. You may use this chart to visually understand when you are using more energy and make decisions about how to spend less on your energy usage.


21. Service information: Details about your electric meter

Your meter tracks your electricity usage.


22. Additional messages: Timely information from PG&E*

If relevant, PG&E uses this space to share timely information, ranging from summer safety tips to regulatory updates.
