Rates Are Set By California Regulators
We work together with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to set rates every three years in a process that's open to the public. Our entire budget is available online to anyone who wants to see it.
State Regulators, Utilities & the Public Working Together
Rates are set through a transparent process of proceedings every three years with the California Public Utilities Commission, the body that regulates all utility services in the state. It’s the nation’s most rigorous, and includes public input and participation. All investor-owned utilities use this same process.
Balancing Public Policy With Affordability
To keep rates affordable and fair, we constantly balance the need to modernize our infrastructure to support reliability with the need to meet state policy requirements regarding such issues as renewable energy. We do that by working with local, state, and federal officials on an ongoing basis, and by keeping you informed throughout.
