PG&E Bill Increasing? Get solar today.
PG&E customers continue to see rising rates in California
Electricity prices are continuing to increase in California, and it’s not looking like that will change anytime soon. With a consistent increase of about 3% each year over the past decade, it has left many people wondering what they can do to make their bills more predictable. Luckily, there is the option to produce your own energy with solar panels removing unnecessary cost fluctuations and giving you back control.
“After March 1, the average monthly PG&E residential gas and electric bill will increase by $8.73 a month. That increase includes $5.01 to support additional electric improvement work and $3.72 for gas. For comparison’s sake, in January 2021, the average monthly PG&E gas and electric bill was $188.22. After March 1, it will be $196.95.” – PG&E
Solar not only gives you more predictability, but it will significantly save you money over the lifetime of the system. The average 6 kW solar panel system in the United States will save you about $1,500 on your electricity bills annually. Generating your own energy with a rooftop PV system, locks in energy costs at a constant rate so that you no longer have to consider variable utility rates. In California, you can expect to see a 20-year savings of around $40,673 with an average 6kW solar system.
