YOUR April 2020 Utility Bill will include a credit identified as the
“California Climate Credit.” Your
household and millions of others throughout the state will receive this credit
on your utility bills. This credit may help offset energy costs from higher
usage as Californians have stayed at home during the recent month in response
to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
*Billing periods vary by utility and may not always coincide with a
calendar month. If you don’t see a Climate Credit in the bill that arrives this
month, it will appear in the bill you receive next month. If you are an
electric customer, the electric credit will appear as a line item on the gas
portion of your bill. If you receive both electric and gas service, you will
see the electric and gas credits on the respective portions of your utility
In Response to
The California Climate Credit is part of
California's efforts to fight climate change. This credit is from a State
program that requires power plants, natural gas providers, and other large
industries that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution permits. The
credit on your bill is your share of the payments from the State's program.
