Public Benefit Charge


In 1996, the State of California required all publicly owned electric utilities to establish a charge for programs that would benefit the public. The programs are required to fit one of these categories:
  • Energy efficiency 
    • Low income assistance
    • Renewable resources
  • Research, development and demonstration
Please refer to Azusa Light & Water Rules and Regulations for the current charge.
