Utilities commission authorizes new revenue
Monthly increase in a typical household’s SDG&E bill for gas and electric customers
Utility bills will rise in September with approval Thursday of a four-year rate increase totaling more than $500 million for customers of San Diego Gas & Electric Co.
A typical household will see monthly gas and electric bills rise about 11 percent to $132.02, up from $118.52, according to the California Public Utilities Commission.
The company was granted a 7.6 percent revenue increase starting in 2012. The hike will be collected retroactively, so many bills will rise by more than that percentage to catch up.
Now is the perfect time to lock in some energy savings in San Diego.
