  FAQ


FAQ

Will I continue to receive my CARE discount if I buy gas from a CTA?

Yes. The California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) discount is mandated by the State of California and continues for all qualified customers regardless of whether PG&E or a CTA supplies their gas. The CARE discount for the customer’s gas commodity, distribution and transmission charges will continue to appear on the PG&E portion of the bill and the discount would be the same as if the customer remained a bundled customer with PG&E.

Can I apply for a medical baseline discount if I buy gas from a CTA?

For customers who are applying for medical baselines, these discounts are only applied on PG&E's portion of cost.

Will I continue to receive my FERA/LIHEAP/Energy Efficiency related rebates or incentives if I buy gas from a CTA?

Yes. Customers are still eligible for the programs mentioned above
