Billing

Utility bills can be confusing. But we’re keeping our part simple.

At Sonoma Clean Power, sustainable solutions mean real benefits. We source, or generate, cleaner electricity for our customers. Our default electricity service is 45% renewable* and 87% carbon-free!

Once you establish service for your home or business through PG&E, your service will start automatically with SCP and your Sonoma Clean Power charges will be presented on your PG&E bill.

These are not duplicative charges, but charges for two different services: PG&E electric delivery service and SCP electric generation service.

If you want to know more about your bill, we invite you to review the video and sample bill below that explains the various charges.

SCP Billing

Video: Understanding Your Bill

1. Account Number
This PG&E account number is needed to sign up for EverGreen service or to opt out and return to PG&E. Just use the 10 digits before the dash.

2. PG&E Electric Delivery Charges
This is PG&E’s charge for the delivery of electricity. It includes transmission, distribution, and a variety of other fees. It does NOT include generation charges if you’re an SCP customer.

3. Sonoma Clean Power (SCP) Electric Generation Charges
This is SCP’s charge for generation – the cost of producing the electricity you use

4. Total Amount Due
The Total Amount Due includes ALL of your fees for PG&E gas service, electric delivery and SCP electricity generation services. You should pay the total amount due on your bill to PG&E. By partnering with PG&E to have just one bill, we keep it simpler for you.

6. Service Agreement ID
A service agreement documents your particular arrangement with PG&E (including billing days, metering information, and other factors) in order to calculate applicable charges.

7. Generation Credit
This number is the amount that PG&E would have charged you for Electric Generation. This number is helpful in comparing SCP’s electric generation cost to PG&E’s electric generation cost.

8. Vintage Power Charge Indifference Adjustment
This fee is required by PG&E of all Sonoma Clean Power customers. It is intended to ensure that customers who switch to SCP pay for the above-market cost of energy that PG&E bought on their behalf prior to the change in service.

9. Franchise Fee Surcharge
This fee is collected by PG&E to pay for the right to use public streets to run gas and electric service.

10. Total PG&E Electric Delivery Charges
This is the sum of PG&E’s charges for electric delivery, which matches the charge on the summary page of your bill.
