PG&E has no choice but to continue to raise the price of electricity in Northern California. As the demand for the commodity continues to escalate so does the price…(economics 101). I have illustrated this below. This data set was taken from one of my current customers in San Jose, CA representing the average price per kW from 2004 to 2011. I have added an additional line to illustrate the trend. I am not saying PGE is not doing great business, they are indeed one of the most progressive utilities in North American, however innovation cost money
This homeowner is and average user of electricity. About 1000kWh per month. The reason the trajectory is up, is most of their power comes in the high penalty tiers where the price per kW is twice as much as the baseline allocation.
The good news Is I can help stop the escalating power bills each month by helping your family go solar with a fixed rate solar lease. Please contact me to find out how.
