As the Central Valley temperatures begin to rise and air conditioners work overtime, it’s vital to stay informed about your PG&E rate plan to optimize your energy costs during the summer months. 

At Sol-Tek Solar, we are committed to ensuring you are saving the MAX amount of money possible.

We recommend you follow these instructions to determine if the rate you are currently enrolled in with PG&E is the best rate for you! 

Here are three reasons you should check your PG&E rate

#1 Avoid Peak Usage Charges

PG&E implements peak pricing during summer afternoons when energy demand is high. By understanding your rate plan, you can schedule energy-intensive activities for off-peak hours, saving you money.

#2 Evaluate Your Energy Usage 

Summer usually means increased energy consumption due to cooling. Reviewing your rate plan helps you assess when to use air conditioning and other energy activities that align with your current usage patterns. You might discover a better plan that better suits your needs without overspending during peak hours.

#3 Take Advantage of Solar Energy

If you have solar panels, your energy production can help offset some of your peak rate charges. Understanding your PG&E rate plan allows you to maximize your solar benefits and reduce your reliance on grid energy during expensive peak summer hours.

How to check your PG&E rate 

Step 1: Log in to your PG&E online account.

Step 2: On the home page, click on “Solar & Energy Details.”

Step 3: On the next screen, select “Jump To:” then from the drop-down box select “Electric Rate Plan Comparison.”

Step 4: Compare the available rates and choose the one that is most cost-effective for you. 

It’s as simple as that. By staying informed and proactive, you become the boss of your energy usage and savings this summer season. Stay cool, informed and stress-free when you get to enjoy the benefits of a well-managed energy plan all summer long!
