Investigators Blame California Utility PG&E For 2017 Wine Country Fires
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JUNE 18: Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) trucks sit parked on a street on June 18, 2018 in San Francisco, California. California lawmakers are saying that PG&E is considering bankruptcy after a report released by Cal Fire investigators earlier this month showed that PG&E was tied to 12 California wildfires in 2017 that destroyed thousands of homes and killed dozens of people. The fires could cost PG&E over $15 billion in fines and related liabilities. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

Get ready to see a rate hike with your PG&E bill and maybe more to come!

California Public Utilities Commission unanimously voted yes to an increase that raises the average bill by $3.50 a month over 12 months.  This is supposed to help with the costs of the wild fires over the last few years.  PG&E has also filed for bankruptcy and  is said to also be seeking about $22 a month in rate increases for wildfire safety and to attract investors.
