Is Your PG&E Bill Too High? Sunrun Can Help.

Learn How to Lower Your PG&E Bill with Solar Panels & a Home Battery Today

It’s no secret Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) bills have skyrocketed in recent years. To dig a little deeper, at the end of 2015 an average home monthly PG&E bill was roughly $138, but by the end of 2016, customers with similar natural gas and electricity usage were already paying around $152 per month — that’s a yearly increase of approximately 10%!1

Unfortunately, electric bill price jumps haven’t stopped since then. In 2017 alone, PG&E energy bills reached an average of $165 per month; and now in 2018, customers are seeing electricity rates 14% higher compared to 2015.2

Before we dive into the details of how a solar plan from Sunrun can help lower your PG&E for the next 25 years or longer, let’s take a couple of minutes to get to know PG&E a little better, as well as the things they’re doing to keep your community and the environment cleaner, healthier and safer.
