PG&E collects payment for RCEA electric service

In recognition of financial hardships some customers may be facing, and consistent with PG&E’s suspension of power disconnections for not-payment, RCEA will not take action on late payment for electricity services during the current COVID-19 crisis.


If you live in Humboldt County, your electricity generation service was automatically transitioned to RCEA’s Community Choice Energy program in May 2017.

PG&E is continuing to maintain the poles and lines, to remedy power outages, and to send you a single consolidated bill. So the only difference you’ll notice might be a slight decrease in your electricity bill.

You have the power to choose with RCEA’s Community Choice Energy program:

  • Stay with our default electricity service called REpower, which costs slightly less than PG&E and contains a slightly higher percentage of renewable energy.
  • Opt up to our premium service called REpower+, which is 100% renewable energy and costs just $0.01 more per kWh.
  • Opt out of the program and remain a “bundled customer” of PG&E.

The choice is yours. There’s absolutely no fee to opt up, or to opt out.

If you’re currently enrolled in any of PG&E’s various discount programs, such as CARE, FERA, or Medical Baseline programs, your coverage will continue under Community Choice Energy. You won’t have to do a thing.

If you have a solar system on your home and are currently a Net Energy Metering customer with PG&E, you’ll continue in RCEA’s Net Energy Metering program. We will credit or pay you at favorable rates for any surplus electricity you produce.
