“California Electric Companies Propose Fixed-Rate Bills Based on Income – A Game Changer for Millions of Customers!”


In California, there has been a recent proposal by electric companies Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric, and San Diego Gas & Electric to switch to a fixed-rate billing system based on income rather than usage. This change was proposed in response to the new Assembly Bill 205, which requires simpler electricity bills.

Starting in 2025, households earning less than $28,000 per year will be charged a fixed monthly fee of $15 in Edison and PG&E territories and $24 in SDG&E territory. Meanwhile, households earning between $28,000 and $69,000 per year will pay $20 in Edison territory, $34 in SDG&E territory, and $30 in PG&E territory.


Customers with an annual income between $69,000 and $180,000 will be charged $51 in Edison and PG&E territories, and $73 in SDG&E territory. Those with incomes above $180,000 will be charged $85 in Edison territory, $128 in SDG&E territory, and $92 in PG&E territory.

According to Kathleen Dunleavy, a spokesperson for Southern California Edison, this change in billing structure is intended to provide relief to millions of customers and increase transparency with bills. Approximately 1.2 million lower-income customers of Southern California Edison will see their bills drop by 16% to 21%.


Overall, the proposed fixed-rate billing system based on income is expected to simplify electricity bills and make them more transparent for customers. It is also expected to provide relief for millions of customers, particularly those with lower incomes.
