San Diego Gas & Electric residential customers should be on the lookout for upcoming breaks in their electric bills in August and September, the company announced. 

Residential customers will receive $64.17 in bill credits on both their August and September electric bills, totaling $128.34. No further action is required to receive the credit, according to the company. 

All electricity customers, including community choice aggregation customers, will automatically receive the credits in their August and September billing cycles. The summer credits come after SDG&E issued residential natural gas customers $43.06 in credits earlier this year due to the California Climate Credit program, administered by the state-run Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).  

According to the company, the credits on customers’ bills represent their share of the payments from the state’s program and provide customers with an increased opportunity to invest in energy-saving products.  

This year’s climate credits total $171.40, about double last year’s amount, the company reported. Eligible small businesses will be able to receive the same amount of climate credits on their electric bills. 

“The credits are applied to bills during what are typically the hottest months in the year when energy bills tend to be higher due to the use of air conditioning,” the company wrote in a press release.  

It will also alert customers to the Climate Credit via email.
