With Budget Billing, a free program from PG&E, you can average out your energy costs for more manageable monthly payments. Using your energy use history, PG&E will level out your monthly payment amount, so if your energy usage changes significantly from season to season, you won’t see big spikes on your bills.
We average your annual energy costs over the last 12 months to determine a monthly payment amount, then we adjust your monthly amount once every 4 months if your actual energy usage has significantly changed. This amount may go up or down.
