On January 12, 2023, Assemblymembers Tri Ta, Laurie Davies and Phillip Chen authored a letter to the California Public Utilities Commission asking them to investigate the recent spike in the cost of natural gas and to call on the CPUC to advance the biannual California Climate Credit on consumer gas bills. The CPUC has now placed the Climate Credit issue on their agenda for the February 2 meeting.
“I am pleased that the California Public Utilities Commission is considering the request we made to issue the California Climate Credit when utility bills are at their peak,” says Assemblyman Ta. “I’ve heard from so many constituents regarding their concerns with their gas bills this month, so I’m relieved the CPUC is being responsive to my request and to the needs of the public at this critical time.”
According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, the price of natural gas is falling everywhere but in California, where we experience natural gas prices up to five time the national average. Many consumers faced bills that tripled in January over the previous month.
The biannual California Climate Credit provides a rebate of between $76-$132 to consumers annually, depending on their utility provider.
