In September, 2021, PG&E automatically enrolled about 200,000 residential electric customers on a tiered rate plan to a time-of-use rate plan. in September. The time-of-use Peak Pricing Plan increases the cost of energy between 4 and 9 p.m. every day. Check with PG&E to learn what your options are if you don’t want the time-of-use rate plan.

This move is due to a statewide policy that’s been in the works for almost a decade to help create cleaner energy. PCE will still use the same rate plans for electricity generation as PG&E at a 5 percent saving over PG&E’s rates.
