About my $2.75 electric bill

I usually pay about $70 a month for electricity (no gas in my condominium). I live alone and donít use heat or AC. Twice a year we get a California Climate Credit. This time it was $64. Honestly, I wish theyíd average it out over the year, but Iíll take it.

Quote:
The California Climate Credit is part of Californiaís 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 Stateís program. The Climate Credit is one of many programs resulting from landmark legislation called the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.

Glad you saw it, LaFish. I hope this doesnít inspire the California-haters to criticize.

Thatís an interesting program. My parents were part of an electric co-op. I got a nice little check when I sold their house and closed the account. I donít have the same company, so no such luck for us. I never really thought about how different utilities are from one another.

Ugh I wish!!! My gas and electric bill is $314 a month. I do a budget plan with PSEG and I am underpaying according to them. I'm expecting my budget plan to go up in a few more months. . Before Covid I was paying $225 a month.

My electric bill was over $100 this month because of continuous AC and I complained to my friend. She then let me know about their over $200 bill. I'll be quiet now. lol

Very nice looking bill! We don't have or need air conditioning here so our bill will look different for a few months at least.

Luvtulearn, I use my dishwasher about 2x a yearóif thatójust to keep it happy. I use the electric range even less because I just donít cook anymore. Iíll bet you have a refrigerator, too; thatís my big consumer, plus the washer/dryer which I try to use sparingly.

Oxygen is a very large culprit. I am so glad that I am not on it anymore. Before I received a discount for the oxygen the bill was $60 more per month and I was only on it 3-4 hours per night. I feel for those that are on it 24/7. They really need to up date those old machines. You do get a sizable discount for multiple medical equipment though.

I still have my solar portable generator from SCE when the power goes out for lighting, recharging, and of course coffee.

I donít like the fact that everyone receives an equal amount with the climate credit. I think people who are proactive in using less electricity should get a higher credit than those who donít

I am currently going through the same battle with water usage. I have been taking measures to use less water all along. My city requires a 30% reduction for everyone. There is no way I can reduce my water usage any further

I have a $300+ credit on my electric bill.

It's because I have solar. I am still paying for the solar panels, but my monthly payment is about what my electric bill used to be (before the big increases that are going to happen this month). I am very happy to not have to worry about how high my electric will be with all the air conditioning I've used this summer.

I usually get about $100 back from the electric company once a year when we settle up.

Hmm, I live in CA but have never heard of this! Truthfully, though, I don't pay much attention to the details on my bills. They are paid automatically. I'll have to actually read the bills, I guess!
