You Can Tell SoCalGas How You Feel about Rate Hike Proposal. Here's How

Customers of Southern California Gas Company can offer their input about the utility’s request to increase rates in upcoming public forums.

Despite facing harsh pushback for issuing some of the highest gas bills in recent months, SoCalGas announced that it wished to raise rates by more than 13% next year.  According to a company fact sheet, that would come out to $8.62 monthly increase for average residential households using 36 terms per month.

The utility says it needs to increase its rates to “modernize and upgrade” its infrastructure while trying to grow its renewable energy options.

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) needs to approve its 2024 General Rates Case Application. Before the final authorization, the CPUC will hold two virtual forums to receive customers’ input and feedback.
