- Three major utility companies in California are looking to restructure customer billing, and part of that means customers could be charged based on how much money they make.
- Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric filed a joint proposal this week for a flat-rate charge based on income.
- The plan would break monthly bills in two parts: The fixed-income rate, plus a reduced usage charge based on consumption.
- Under the proposal, it would cost as little as $15 a month for low-income households and up to $85 more per month for households making more than $180,000 a year.
