You might be surprised what medical conditions qualify for a lower rate on energy!
Make sure you’re not missing out on savings you’re entitled to! The PG&E Medical Baseline Program is for households that have higher energy needs because someone in the home has a medical condition.
• It provides more energy for you at a lower rate.
• Eligibility is not based on income, just the medical needs of a person in the home.
• If one person qualifies, the entire household receives the lower rate.
Examples of medical equipment that qualify:
• Motorized wheelchairs
• IPPB or CPAP machines
• Equipment for other conditions, including those requiring special heating and cooling
