Re: PG&E / CPUC - Non-Tiered Time Of Use Rates

I also received notice by mail, on 10/2, for the rate change which began on 8/19.

If the billing difference is significant, and it's worth your time to complain, you might want to call PG&E.

After my WTF call, on ~9/23, I wound up saving ~25$ by getting my kWh use for 8/19 to 9/21 rebilled at my previous E9a rate.
no condition is permanent

Re: PG&E / CPUC - Non-Tiered Time Of Use Rates

I saw a post on the Prius forum and I thought it is important information for those with solar and in PG&E territory.

I qoute:
Earlier this month, the PUC (PG&E’s Utility Chums) approved a new solar-hostile rate structure*. It can go into effect as early as Jan. 1, 2016, but in no event later than June 1, 2016.

When that occurs, two bad things will happen:
E-7 customers will be shafted - I mean shifted - to the new E-TOU rate
E-6 will be closed to new customers.
PG&E requires a month’s notice for you to switch to E-6. E-7 customers should do that now, before the end of November.

Here is the link to the PG&E documents

Also, it appears that even E6 will go away, after another 5 years or so. After that, all solar customers will be shafted onto the new solar-unfriendly E-TOU rate or back to the E1 rate.
