You’re helping to fight climate change

Twice a year, millions of California residents receive a credit on their energy bill. Known as the “California Climate Credit,” it’s part of the state’s efforts to fight climate change. The credit comes from a state program to cut carbon pollution while also reducing energy costs.

Households receive a climate credit in April and October. Starting in 2019, the gas credit will be applied just once a year, in April.

In October 2019, SDG&E’s electric customers will receive a $31.32 bill credit.

Customers with electric service will receive the electric bill credit. Community Choice Aggregator customers also receive the credit.

You don’t need to do anything to receive the credit – it’s automatically applied to your bill. The amounts vary among utilities. See what other customers in the state are getting and read some frequently asked questions.
