Have you fallen behind on energy bill payments? Two recently-implemented state programs offer financial assistance to eligible CCA customers: The California Arrearage Payment Program (CAPP) and the Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP).

“The CAPP and PIPP programs are multi-billion dollar initiatives to address state-wide energy debts and alleviate financial burdens caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” said Tim Sandoval, Pomona’s Mayor. “Clean power should be affordable, and Pomona Choice Energy is committed to ensuring our community has access to renewable energy, regardless of income status.”

Through the CAPP program, Pomona Choice Energy customers with outstanding balances on previous energy bills received a credit to help offset debt accrued between March 4, 2020 and June 15, 2021. The credit was applied to all energy bill payments during that time frame that were more than 60 days overdue. Credits were distributed in March 2022.

The Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) is a pilot program that will become available to a limited number of CARE customers based on need. The program enables participants to pay a predetermined affordable percentage of their monthly income toward their utility bills. Through this program “pilot,” administered by SCE, it is anticipated that eligible participating customers will only be required to pay 4% of their household’s monthly income.

Pomona Choice Energy supports these programs because they provide financial relief to our valued customers. For more information about financial assistance programs, please contact Pomona Choice Energy customer service:
