Understanding your PG&E bill as an EBCE customer

Now that you are receiving electric generation service from East Bay Community Energy, you’ll notice several changes on your monthly PG&E bill. EBCE prepared this sample bill to help you understand the new charges and the credits that appear on your bill. 

Questions on your PG&E Bill?

How can I compare EBCE charges to PG&E?
I’m a Renewable 100 customer. Why does my bill include Brilliant 100?
How can I calculate my 1.5% savings?

If you have any questions (like the ones above), join us on our Understanding your Bill tour. An EBCE staff member will be at a cafe near you to answer questions about your slightly altered PG&E bill. To view more events where you can speak to an EBCE staff member in person, click here.
