Customer Service Email
We’ve used the online contact form for PG&E customer service to ask about a dedicated email address. No such email address is listed on the official website. According to the form, you can enter your account information if you want the customer service representative to respond about a concern regarding your account.
We’ll let you know how PG&E email customer service responded to our contact.
Our experience with the PG&E customer service line was not as great as we had hoped. The first time we called the number rang more than 10 times before finally being picked up with an automated system. We pressed 0 and the call was immediately transferred to the customer service line. After the transfer we were placed on hold. The automated system offered to call us back within two to four minutes – the estimated wait time. We actually waited five minutes on hold before a customer service representative answered the call. We asked about the Smart Meter service and the representative quickly explained the Smart Meter, but not before asking for our name and account number.
The email inquiry sent to PG&E customer service resulted in a helpful response. The representative responded to our request within 2 hours and provided several options for customer service contact. Customers can read the communication below:
