Notice from the California Public Utilities Commission

As a PG&E customer, I received this email from the California PUC today (my bold):

What is the California Climate Credit?
A Message from the California Public Utilities Commission

This month your utility bill will include a credit identified as the “California Climate Credit.” Your household and millions of others throughout the state will receive this credit on your utility bills.

The California Climate Credit is part of California’s efforts to fight climate change. This credit is from a state program that requires power plants, natural gas providers, and other large industries that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution permits. The credit on your bill is your share of the payments from the State’s program.

The Climate Credit is one of many programs resulting from landmark legislation called the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Together, these programs are cutting pollution, creating jobs, and investing in cleaner energy and transportation. Your Climate Credit is designed to help you join in these efforts. Visit www.EnergyUpgradeCA.org/the-movement to learn about energy-saving actions you can take.
