A new PG&E program allows you to help pay the energy bill of a friend, neighbor, college student, or local business.
It's an unusual but practical gift that someone in your life just might appreciate, especially at a time when many families are struggling to make ends meet.
The Gift Payment program works much like a gift card. You decide on what amount you want to pay, complete a form, print it out and include it with your check or money order made payable to PG&E.
You can find the form here.
If you have no one specific you want to send this gift to, you can also make a general donation to PG&E's Relief for Energy Assistance through Community Help (REACH) program.
