The California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) program can provide qualifying residential customers with a 20 percent discount on Pacific Power monthly electric bills. Simply complete the CARE enrollment form and we’ll let you know if you’re eligible. Once approved for the program, you will receive your discount for two years. After two years, you'll have to renew your application to make sure you still qualify. For households on a fixed-income, renewal is every four years.
You may qualify for CARE if you or a member of your household participates in one or more of the following public assistance programs or meet the specific income guideline qualifications. Even if you are receiving unemployment benefits, your household income as of today may qualify you to receive the discount.
If you meet these guidelines, please apply for CARE:
