Average Electric Rates Will Drop 3.0 Percent on June 1
- The utility will lower average electric rates for all customers 3.0 percent. (The specific impact on bills will vary by how much electricity customers use and whether they are homes or businesses. See charts below for residential impact.)
- PG&E is cutting the top residential rate charged for the highest levels of use by 19.6 percent in all parts of its service area. This rate rollback will help customers in inland areas during the hottest months when air conditioning is a necessity and will also provide relief to customers elsewhere who have higher-than-average use due to larger family size, medical needs, more exposure to sun, or older, less well-insulated homes and apartments.
- Rates for the next highest level of use will drop by 5.8 percent. Rates for the middle tier will rise 1.8 percent to help offset the other declines.
