Who is Eligible?
Any PG&E customer or CCA customer in PG&E service territory with a smart water heater can enroll in WatterSaver. But don’t worry if you don’t have a smart water heater, many standard electric water heaters can be retrofitted to be eligible for the program.
In order to be eligible for WatterSaver, you must be a PG&E or community choice aggregator (CCA) customer in PG&E service territory and on a Time-of-Use (TOU) rate*. If you are not currently on a TOU rate you will be automatically enrolled in TOU-C when you sign up for WatterSaver. CCA customers may also participate in WatterSaver as long as they receive a bill from PG&E. Below is a sample list of eligible TOU rates:
E-TOU-A, E-TOU-B, E-TOU-C, E-TOU-D
- E6 (retired)
Your current rate schedule can be found on your PG&E bill. See the example below:
