We provide the CARE and FERA Programs for income-qualified households. However, each program offers a different type of energy discount. CARE has lower income guidelines than FERA. If you submit an application for CARE and don’t qualify under the income guidelines, we automatically evaluate you for FERA.
The CARE Program offers a 35 percent discount (approximately) for electric rates and a 20 percent discount for gas rates. The FERA Program offers an 18 percent discount on electric rates and doesn’t offer a discount on gas rates.
For more information and to apply for CARE or FERA go to our Get Discounts on Your PG&E Bill page and select the Apply or Renew Now button.
