CARE and FERA Can Reduce Your Monthly Energy Bills!!

The California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) and the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) programs, provide discounts for income-qualified customers.

The CARE program provides a discount of approximately 30 percent on monthly electric bills for eligible customers. And the FERA program gives a reduced monthly discount for income-qualified households of three or more based on energy usage. Rates are structured by the California Public Utilities Commission.

Two Ways to Find Out if You Qualify

Option 1: Public Assistance Programs

You can qualify for CARE if you or someone in your home participates in at least one of these public assistance programs:

  • Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance
  • CalFresh/SNAP (Food Stamps)
  • CalWorks (TANF)/Tribal TANF
  • Head Start Income Eligible (Tribal Only)
  • LIHEAP
  • Medi-Cal/Medicaid
  • Medi-Cal for Families (Healthy Families A&B)
  • National School Lunch Program (NSLP)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • WIC

Option 2: Household Income

You can also qualify for CARE or FERA if you meet the low-income requirements.

Please contact your community manager for more information and an application.  Your electric and gas utility provider will also have information on these programs.
