Californians Will Receive a “Climate Credit” on Their Bill October

Californians should expect a credit on their October bill Public Utilities Commission officials said. This anywhere for $17 to $143, depending on the electric company that services your area. Every October and April residential customers receive a credit identified as “California Climate Credit”. This credit comes from a program, in the State of California that fights climate change.

What is the credit for?

Theses credits are not offered so you can go through the Starbuck’s drive-thru guilt free a few extra times a month or go get your nails done, the credit is to assist you in helping in their efforts to fight climate change. Although it is your choice how you use this credits, residents are encouraged to invest this credit into energy-saving upgrades in their home. Even a change in light bulbs can reduce your bill as well as your carbon footprint.


Can’t afford to make major changes?

There are programs to help those with low or even moderate incomes in order to help you upgrade your lighting, and your home cooling. This program is called the Energy Savings Assistance Program. This program helps many households each year to change their air conditioning units, evaporative cooler (swamp cooler), energy-efficient window/wall air conditioners, refrigerator replacement, pool pump replacement, lighting and weatherization services. Most of these will be provided for low or no cost to the owner or renter of the home.
