KCBS: Under the proposed increase, which would be in effect from 2020 to 2022, the typical gas and electric customer's bill would go up by 6.4 percent —an average of $10.57 per month. That would add up to almost $127 per year per customer. State Senator Jerry Hill calls it an outrage. "This is an extraordinary amount of money," he said. "They're already charging us almost the highest rates in the country, and to add this to it, I find it obscene."
