Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) is the natural gas utility provider for the greater Sacramento, CA, area. Customers have a number of different payment options available to them, and the steps to complete them can be read about in the sections of the guide below.
Online Payments to PG&E
Standard online payments toward your PG&E account balance (As opposed to those that don’t require a login which will be discussed shortly) will mean you will have to go through the account registration process. When registering, have the accountholder’s name available as well as the account number and be ready to answer questions to set the login up.
With the login created, head to pge.com pay bill and sign in with your user name and password. Then, navigate to payments, choose how much you want to pay, input your billing details and submit the transaction.
Online Payments without Logging In
If you don’t want to sign in to or set up an account, you can make online payments to PG&E through their “EZ-Pay” One-Time Bill Payment page. Enter your account number and phone number to have your account pulled up, then type in your payment information and finalize the transaction. These steps are given directions on the page and are rather easy to follow.
