EUREKA, Calif.— Thousands of income-eligible customers in the North Coast could save 18% on their monthly electric bill by enrolling in Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s Family Electric Rate Assistance, or FERA, program.

The FERA program gives discounts on electricity bills to income-qualified households of three or more individuals, but thousands of eligible customers have not yet signed up for the program, and are missing out on significant savings.

PG&E estimates a total of 3,199 households in Lake, Mendocino and Humboldt counties could save on their monthly bills by enrolling in FERA.

“PG&E continues to partner with agencies in our hometowns to reach eligible customers as the FERA program remains underutilized. We hope the remaining eligible customers will learn more about the program and apply today,” said Aaron August PG&E Vice President of Business Development & Customer Engagement.

Less than 25% of eligible PG&E households are currently enrolled in the program in Northern and Central California with an estimated 174,219 eligible and only 39,907 enrolled.

Some may overlook FERA thinking it only applies to families, or that income qualifications are the same as a similar monthly energy discount program; California Alternate Rates for Energy Program, or CARE. In fact, any income qualified household that does not qualify for CARE may be eligible for FERA as it has higher income guidelines.

Customers who apply for CARE and don’t qualify are automatically evaluated for FERA. Customers cannot be enrolled in both programs. CARE offers a higher monthly discount of 20 percent or more on both gas and electricity.

FERA applications can be found online or visit a local community agency located throughout PG&E’s service area to pick up a paper application. Applying can be easy and only takes about five minutes. Eligible customers begin receiving the FERA program discount in their next billing cycle once their application is approved.

Customers who meet income requirements for FERA and CARE may also qualify for the Energy Savings Assistance Program offering free energy-saving improvements to maximize energy efficiency in the home. With recent changes to the federal income guidelines, even more customers are eligible.

Every year, the California Public Utilities Commission adjusts the maximum qualifying income levels for FERA to reflect changes in the federal poverty guidelines. FERA is funded through a rate surcharge paid for by all utility customers.

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Women’s Civic Club has donated $10,000 to the Northshore Youth Club.

The women’s club opened up applications for the $10,000 to all local nonprofits in Lake County to apply.

“There were numerous applications that came in and are all worthy causes and missions. It was difficult narrowing it down as there are so many needs here in Lake County,” said board member Connie Conser.

“Once we narrowed down the applications to the top six, we had each organization come to a board meeting to present on the need/project request of how the $10,000 will make an impact,” said President Helen Finch.

At a recent civic club monthly meeting, they presented the Northshore Youth Club with a $10,000 check.

The Northshore Youth Club, or NYC, is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing and sponsoring local academic and extracurricular enrichment activities to all youth — ages 5 to 18 years old — to the Northshore and beyond.

NYC provides high quality programs with a wide range of free or affordable opportunities for all Northshore families including but not limited to basketball league, football, cheer and a rock music camp to name a few.

Northshore Youth Club is 80% funded through donations and sponsorships and 20% funded through the minimal registration fees which cover the insurance and individualized gear that is needed to conduct various programs.

“The funding provided by LCWCC is going to make a huge impact and will fund the following needs: financial sponsorship of underprivileged youth, purchase of much-needed equipment and start of new programs such as arts, performing arts, poetry and photography programs and will provide much-needed gear for the newly established and growing NYC wrestling team,” said Mike Smith, the president of the Northshore Youth Club Board of Directors.

The Lake County Women’s Civic Club’s mission is to serve in ways that will make our community a better place for citizens.

“By enhancing the lives of youth, we are working towards enhancing the future of Lake County,” said Past President Julie Hernaez.

“I couldn’t be more proud of our club and the organization that we chose for the $10,000 donation. We know this is going to make an impact for years to come,” said Finch.
