Californians – Regulators back higher electric rates for some
Regulators at the California Public Utilities Commission issued a recommendation Tuesday that largely endorses proposals by the state’s investor-owned utilities that would increase household electricity bills for small and moderate consumers and shift costs away from a smaller number of heavy users.
A vote on the recommendation by administrative judges at the commission could take place as soon as May 21, giving time for consumer advocates to comment. Initial bill changes could take effect as soon as July, and new pricing would be phased in over several years.
Minimum monthly bill payments would likely increase to $10, and the proposal would allow regulators to consider more fixed fees and gradually introduce optional time-based rates that fluctuate with hourly demands on the electric grid.
