PRESS RELEASE. From the City of Half Moon Bay eNews on February, 8th, 2024.
If you went without power for 48 hours or longer due to a storm or other major weather-related event, you may qualify for a PG&E Storm Inconvenience Payment.
To qualify, you must meet the following criteria:
- You are a PG&E electric residential customer. Enrollment in programs such as CARE or Medical Baseline Allowance does not impact eligibility.
- Your PG&E residential account is in good standing at the time of the outage and at the time PG&E issues payment (typically 45-60 days after the event).
- You experienced a power outage for 48 consecutive hours or longer during a major weather-related event.
- The extended outage is the result of a major weather-related event that caused significant damage to PG&E’s electric distribution system.
If you are eligible, you do not need to apply – PG&E will send payments directly to you.
