There are several ways to reduce the cost of your electricity and natural gas bill. The CARE Program is one of the best resources available — it provides low-income customers a 35 percent discount on their electric bill and a 20 percent discount on their natural gas bill. This page provides information on how you can take advantage of this assistance.
CARE is a state program that provides a discounted rate for electricity to qualifying low-income households. This program is administered to all customers by PG&E, including customers who choose to receive service from a community choice energy program (such as EBCE).
