Pacific Gas and Electric Company offers its retired employees a 25% discount on Pacific Gas and Electric Company-supplied electricity and gas for a retiree's primary residence (domestic use only). For surviving spouses, the 25% discount will be automatically continued for six billings from the time of the employee's or retiree's death.
Vested annuitants and surviving spouses of vested annuitants are not eligible for the 25% discount rates.
The Discounted Rates are a Pacific Gas and Electric Company practice, not subject to employee benefits regulations including, but not limited to, ERISA.
