Charging You Based on Income is Wrong

The proposed fixed-rate bill would establish an income-based charging model for electricity, with households facing predetermined monthly charges based on their income bracket, regardless of actual energy usage.

Here's a breakdown of what this could mean for Californians.

  • Households with annual income from $28,000 – $69,000 would pay $20 a month in Southern California Edison territory, $34 a month in SDG&E territory, and $30 a month in PG&E territory.
  • Households earning $69,000 – $180,000 would pay $51 a month in Edison and PG&E territories, and $73 a month in SDG&E territory.
  • Those with incomes above $180,000 would pay $85 a month in Edison territory, $128 a month in SDG&E territory.

This is on top of what you already pay. Individuals who have invested in residential solar would not be exempt from these fixed charges.

This plan disproportionately affects the middle class, which is the backbone of our local economy. At a time when inflation is at an all-time high, it will hurt many Californians, especially seniors on fixed incomes.

I will do all I can to stop this plan, but it will take everyone speaking out!

Will you sign?
