Pacific Gas & Electric is preparing to hit customers with a spike in monthly bills in January, an increase that comes amid an unprecedented rise in utility rates for Californians over the past decade.
In the past eight years, average monthly residential bills for combined electricity and gas have jumped by $86.51 — from $154.52 in January 2016 to $241.03 in January 2023, according to data from PG&E obtained by the Chronicle.
