Is the MBCP Electric Generation Charge an extra charge?
No. MBCP manages electric generation, a service that PG&E used to provide at the same rate. Now that MBCP is in charge of how and where your electricity is generated, MBCP Electric Generation charges appear on their own page within your PG&E billing statement. MBCP charges the same rate as PG&E for electric generation and delivers a cost savings to all customers through a 3% rebate on MBCP Electric Generation Charges.
Does MBCP cost more than PG&E?
No. MBCP charges the same rate as PG&E for electric generation and delivers a cost savings to all customers through a 3% rebate on MBCP Electric Generation Charges. PG&E continues to charge for transmission and distribution.
Why am I getting charged for electricity from both PG&E and MBCP? Is this a duplicate charge?
PG&E has always charged for electricity generation, electricity transmission (transmitting high voltage over long distances) and electricity distribution (distributing lower voltage over shorter distances). With PG&E service only these charges are combined into one bundled service rate, along with the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment and Franchise Fee . Now that MBCP manages electricity generation, these charges are all listed separately. MBCP and PG&E partner to provide complete billing information in one convenient place.
All customers may change their enrollment at this time. Should you receive an error, please check that the Name and account number that you enter in the form matches the one listed on your bill.
