PG&E Rates: Some Up, Some Down

Electricity bills for some Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers will climb slightly in the new year while others will see their rates decline.

PG&E said Thursday residential customers who use relatively little power will experience a 3 percent increase in rates starting Jan. 1.

Those who draw large amounts of electricity, on the other hand, will get a 2.6 percent rate cut.

That will help people with big homes and those in the Central Valley, where summer heat waves are common and lead to large electricity bills.

PG&E spokeswoman Christine Cordner tells the San Francisco Chronicle neither set of customers will see dramatic changes in their monthly bills.

Homeowners who use the most power will still pay a far higher electricity rate than homeowners who use far less.
