Our response to COVID-19
We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19, including suspending service disconnections for residential and small business customers for nonpayment, and only continuing critical work needed to protect public safety and reduce the risk of wildfires. Learn more here. If you have recently lost your job, even if you are receiving unemployment benefits, you may qualify for a reduced energy rate through our CARE or FERA programs.

Tiered Rate Plan

Tiered Rate Plan

In the Tiered Rate Plan (Schedule D), you begin each billing period at the Tier 1 rate, which has the lowest price per kilowatt-hour (kWh). If you use more energy than the baseline allocation for your region, your rate climbs to Tier 2. A state-mandated High Usage Charge may also apply.

The Tiered Rate Plan is a more traditional billing plan where the best way to keep energy costs low is to limit your total energy consumption.

To see which tier you are currently in:

  1. Log into My Account.
  2. Select the “View Recent Usage” button.
  3. Select “How is this calculated?” which is below your “Projected Next Bill” total.
