Did you all get your black and white pg&e bills for periods ending in August? I was expecting to get a bill on August 20 (usually my monthly cutoff is the 12th), but I haven't seen anything. PG&E's help line simply says I should wait. I guess I shouldn't have contacted them about the $2.97 issue for the period ending July 12 hah.
my July B&W bill was almost a month late

Gotcha, so I guess for your month ending August whatever... you haven't received that B&W bill yet.
I just got one, but it was for my second true up from batteries. It was like 5 months to get that clean. But not with another true up coming
for the added solar, going to lose all my credits, again

My black and white paired storage bills have been issuing +/- 1 day for two years. If you have made any changes to your system recently, that is likely the reason.

Edit: I should not say it that way. I don't have evidence of when each B&W bill was actually available in the account. However, every time I have looked for it at least 3 days after closing, it has been there.

my bill cycle ends on the 21st. Usually, I get the B&W bill within ~7 days of cycle end. I didn't get it until near the end of august
I need to check for my August bill

Can the B&W be downloaded? If so, never seen how yet
It's a bit convoluted. I posted about it here:

Booooo no August bill detail for me :( . Maybe this means PG&E will never bill me again for energy? maybe? probably not :( :( :(

I do not see on my page this download detail of bill.


Well it's a given at this point you'll never owe PG&E for energy ever again. So they probably just stopped generating a bill for you.

Of course if they charge you for each kWh that you produce under NEM 3.0 ... at which point they'll come to collect both your kidneys and an eye.

Lol PG&E called me today for an update on why I don't have my August B&W NEM2PS bill. They said it should be in my portal, but don't know why it's unavailable for download. That's it.

Like I could feel the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ over the phone. Nice.

DOUBLE FRACK... the PG&E billing department says my NEM2PS bill for August is "pending release" but won't explain why it's only pending and not released.

Like maybe someone is hand typing all the NEM2PS bills and they're on break???

They still never got back to me about that 10 kWh discrepancy with their bill and the Greenbutton saying I used energy from their precious grid during shoulder time. I guess all this is related but unrelated since evidently nobody knows what's up with any of my bills.

A customer cannot audit their bill if PG&E never sends the customer a bill. Problem solved. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
