It’s no secret that due to PG&E’s corruption, it is causing their customers to pay more on their utility bills to make up the deficit on the lawsuits payouts from numerous PG&E-caused fires. Customers are suffering financially for PG&E’s gain all and they feel stuck as the rate hikes make a situation made rough by the pandemic even worse for residential and commercial customers. Both customers were met with the PG&E rate increases which detailed that, “on March 1, the average electric bill for residential customers increased 9%, or roughly $14. Businesses were hit with a 10% increase.” This seems like a small number, but increases like these are financially crippling businesses and residential customers as well, especially as most people are already at a loss economically and emotionally from the pandemic. PG&E claims that the rate increases in California are from the drought so the access to hydroelectric power is limited and natural gas currently makes up about 90% of the current PG&E prices. Unfortunately, it looks like PG&E isn’t done seeking rate hikes as, “the company is seeking approval for a 30% increase in 2023 to help fund its effort to bury 3,600 miles of distribution lines.” It may seem like PG&E customers are stuck with no other options to power their home; however, there is another alternative for those looking to break free of PG&E’s oppressive rate increases.
