Residents enrolled in the CARE or FERA programs should expect to see a $100 credit applied to their accounts for the month of April due to a unanimous decision made Thursday by the Peninsula Clean Energy’s Board of Directors.
The one-time grant will impact approximately 30,000 San Mateo County customers struggling and potentially out of work due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
Peninsula Clean Energy was launched by San Mateo County in partnership with all its cities to provide electricity that is 100% greenhouse gas free by 2021 and 100% renewable by 2025. CARE provides a 20% discount for gas and electricity while FERA provides an 18% discount for electricity alone. No action is necessary for those already enrolled in the programs and anyone interested in the discounts can apply through the PG&E website. Go to peninsulacleanenergy.com to learn more.
