Yes, CARE, FERA and Medical Baseline are state programs which provide a discounted rate for electricity to qualifying low-income households. These programs are administered to all customers by PG&E, including those who choose to receive service from a CCA or CTA. If you’re enrolled in CARE/FERA/Medical Baseline and start service with a CCA or CTA, your account will remain enrolled in these programs and you’ll continue to receive your CARE discount on the PG&E portion of your billing. New enrollments and re-enrollments for CARE/FERA/Medical Baseline must be done through PG&E.
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.
