Budget Billing averages your monthly energy costs across the last 12 months to help avoid big spikes on your energy statements. The plan helps your monthly payment amount remain more consistent, even if your energy use changes significantly from season to season. The program will reassess your usage every four months and adjust your budget amount if your usage differs from what was expected by more than 20%.
Note: If you have a third-party electric generation company (CCA) or gas procurement company (CTA), your budget amount will only cover the PG&E portion of your billing; you will be responsible for paying actual usage each month with the third party.
