線上工具和協助計畫可以幫助因天然氣成本而痛苦掙扎的顧客

冬季即將揭開序幕,隨著氣溫下降,顧客可能會使用更多的能源來取暖。同時,受到西海岸需求增加與供應緊張的影響,太平洋煤電公司 (PG&E) 為其運送給顧客的天然氣所支付的價格在今年持續上漲。 儘管顧客可能會看到自己的能源帳單上漲,但 PG&E 並未控制其為天然氣和電力支付的市場價格,PG&E 也不標記代表顧客購買的能源成本。 PG&E 在其 Currents 網站上提供了有關燃氣費上漲的更多資訊。這個網站還提供有關加州氣候減免額度的資訊。California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) 核准盡快分配信貸額度,比往年 4 月的時程表提早許多,以協助抵消高於平常的帳單。對於天然氣住宅型顧客,信貸額度為 $52.78;對於電力住宅型顧客,信貸額度為 $38.39。接受這兩種服務的顧客,將獲得 $91.17 的信貸額度。 以下是顧客可以用來管理冬日帳單的工具: 確定自己使用正確的費率計畫:查看您的個人化費率計畫比較,針對您的家戶使用能源的方式,找出最佳費率計畫。讓帳單變得可預測:利用 Budget Billing,幫您平衡每個月的款項,並且抵銷季節性高價帳單,這是一款免費工具,能把您的年度能源費用平均分配,幫助您管理每月帳單。彈性付款安排:延後您的帳單到期日或協商付款安排計畫。存取您的線上帳戶,瞭解詳細內容。 對於支付帳單有困難的客戶,可以了解有關以下方案的更多資訊。 California Alternate Rates for Energy Program (CARE)為符合收入條件的客戶,每月節省至少 20% 以上的能源費用。家庭電費援助 (FERA) 計畫 (FERA) 為家庭中三人或三人以上符合收入條件的客戶,提供每月電費折扣。低收入家庭能源援助方案 (LIHEAP) 提供高達 1,000 美元的費用,來支付符合條件的家庭能源費用。透過社區幫助的能源援助救濟(REACH)方案為有逾期帳單的合格客戶提供一次性財務援助。 顧客可能同時符合幾個計畫的資格,現在就可以開始申請或報名參加。 以下是顧客可以在今年冬天採取的降低能源成本的簡單步驟: 調低您的恆溫器。健康許可情況下,恆溫器每降低一度,您的暖氣費就可以節省大約 2%(如果日夜大部分的時間都持續把溫度調低的話)。例如,從 70 度調低到 65 度可節省 10%。 維持風口附近區域的暢通:家具與地毯會阻擋暖氣風口,導致暖氣系統需要更吃力運作,並且還會讓房間無法快速升溫。 用冷水洗衣服:只在洗衣機裝滿衣服時,用冷水清洗,進而節省熱水費用。 利用窗簾:白天拉開窗簾及百葉窗,讓室內溫暖明亮,晚上則關上窗簾及百葉窗,防止冷空氣進入。 降低熱水器溫度:把熱水器溫度設定在華氏 120 度,就能降低熱水器加熱並維持熱水溫度所需要的能源量。 有關寒冷天氣節能的更多簡單提示,請前往 …
