Central Coast Community Energy Partners with Switch Is On Electrification Campaign

Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE) has announced its partnership with the statewide Switch Is On campaign, part of a unified effort to help CCCE customers and all Californians make the switch from natural-gas-powered appliances and building infrastructure to all-electric solutions.  
Transportation, buildings and related energy use are the biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions in the state. The Switch Is On campaign not only aims to educate and raise awareness about electrification but to help California households and businesses save money and employ qualified contractors when converting from gas-powered to all-electric appliances. Additionally, Switch Is On invites interested contractors to register with its TECH program and gain access to significant contractor rebates, incentives, and workforce development and training resources.

A New Program Offering Electric and Gas Bill Financial Support is Now Available

The Arrearage Management Program provides up to $8,000 total past due or “arrearage” forgiveness for 3CE and PG&E customers. Customers must be enrolled in PG&E’s California Alternate Rates for Energy Programs (CARE) or Family Electric Rate Assistance Program (FERA) to be eligible for AMP.  
Customers must also owe at least $500 in arrearages, or $250 for gas-only customers, with some portion of the arrearage at least 90 days past due. At this time, Net energy Metering (NEM) customers are not eligible to participate in the AMP program. 
 
How does the Arrearage Management Program Work? 
Customers enrolled in AMP will receive forgiveness for 1/12 of their starting arrearage balance for every on-time payment of a current monthly bill, with a maximum possible amount of $8,000 in total forgiveness per 12-month period. Customers must make all 12 months of on-time payments to remain in the program. If a customer falls out of compliance, any amount previously forgiven is not forfeited 
 

Customers can call PG&E to enroll in the program at 1-800-743-5000.
