Southern California Edison Rate Hikes SCE chart

The Price of Electricity is going up in Southern California.

I have the pleasure of visiting with all kinds of great people when I am consulting them on the benefits of going solar. I love when I meet a family and they have their Southern California Edison bills going back decades. I am a geek when it comes to raw data. This time it was one of my fellow solar consultants who just happen to have his bills for the last decade.

Some people I visit with do not think the price of electricity is going to go up, they think all the info I give them is subjective. However, you can not argue with objective data. The below represents the price per kilowatt provided by Southern California Edison over the last decade for a home in the heart of Orange County California. SCE has been billing in a tier structure for the last few years. Tiers1-5. Tier 5 is the most expensive electricity available in most of North America and is were the rate increases are the most sever. The sample home did not buy any tier 5 power from SCE over the past decade averaging 975kW per month. Imagine how higher the escalation would have been if they did
