SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego Gas & Electric customers will see a credit on their April bill due to California’s fight against climate change.

SDG&E says a $21.11 California Climate Credit will appear on residential customers’ bills, and the credit will be automatically added to their monthly statement.

According to SDGE, the 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 the bill is the customers’ share of the payments from the State's program.”

The utility says the credit “comes at an ideal time when many are staying home due to the coronavirus pandemic and may be using more energy than normal.”
