Pacific Power release – PORTLAND, Ore. — This month, Pacific Power customers’ utility bills will include a credit called the California Climate Credit. A credit of $404.27 will apply to the utility bill of each Pacific Power residential and small business customer in October. This variable climate credit is paid twice a year at a flat rate and is part of the state’s efforts to fight climate change. This credit is a provision of the California Cap-and-Trade Program, which requires power plants, fuel providers and extensive industrial facilities that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution allowances. The credit on Pacific Power bills is designed to help utility customers during the transition to a low-carbon future. Proceeds raised by the Cap-and-Trade Program generate the Climate Credit and fund additional programs that cut pollution, create jobs and invest in cleaner energy and transportation. For more information about additional programs funded by the California Cap-and-Trade Program to reduce carbon pollution, improve public health and the environment and provide meaningful benefits to the most disadvantaged communities, visit www.caclimateinvestments.ca.gov/. Customers can call Pacific Power at 888-221-7070 for their bill information and learn more about the California Climate Credit at the California Public Utilities Commission’s website.
