- Come March, 250,000 PG&E customers could pay new rates for power
By David R. Baker - Tuesday Jul 4, 2017
If state regulators approve, a quarter of a million Californians scattered across Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s vast service territory will, in March, begin paying different prices for power at different times of day.The pilot project, which will require the approval of the California Public Utilities Commission to take effect, will let the utility test different ways of alerting customers to the big switch.“The way Californians are charged for energy continues to change,” said Aaron Johnson, PG&E’s vice president for customer energy solutions, in an email.The commission has been studying time-of-use rates for more than a decade and voted in 2015 to make them standard for most utility customers.By charging more when the demand for electricity reaches its daily peak, usually in late afternoon or early evening, time-of-use rates encourage people to shift some of their electricity use to other times of day.Participants would also receive 12 months of “bill protection” from PG&E. If it turns out they paid more for electricity under the new rates than they would have under the old, the utility will pay them the difference with a bill credit after 12 months.“We don’t see time of use as a customer-friendly initiative or one designed to make electricity more affordable,” said Mindy Spatt, spokeswoman for The Utility Reform Network consumer group.Retirees living in California’s hot interior valleys, for example, can’t turn off their air conditioners during peak summer hours without sweltering in their homes.PG&E customers whose bills already reflect the baseline use of a home medical device would be excluded from the March pilot project.
