*Based on a typical residential usage of 450kWh under the E-1 rate schedule at current PG&E rates, and the SJCE rates effective September 1, 2018. Actual costs will vary depending on usage and other factors. This estimate is an average of seasonal rates. The PG&E renewable energy content is in the Annual Report to the California Energy Commission Power Source Disclosure Program in June 2018.

WHAT ARE THESE CHARGES FOR?

Electric Generation

This pays for your source of power and how much electricity you’re using. Your rate will vary, depending on the type of service you choose: GreenSource, TotalGreen or PG&E service.
 

Electric Delivery

PG&E still delivers your electricity on existing power lines and maintains the lines. The PG&E delivery rates are the same for everyone.
 

PG&E Added Fee

PG&E does add a fee for SJCE customers to your bill, sometimes called an “exit fee,” to reimburse for existing infrastructure and long-term contract costs for electricity previously purchased. As shown in the chart above, SJCE GreenSource service is still cheaper than PG&E, even with the added fee.
