San Diego Gas & Electric is hoping to change the way it bills homeowners with solar power, according to our media partner North County Times.
Should regulators approve the request, SDG&E would unbundle the charges for electricity and for transporting electricity.
Solar customers could end up paying an average of $33 extra per month, said J.C. Thomas, the utility's manager for government and regulatory affairs, last week.
On Monday, SDG&E spokeswoman Stephanie Donovan revised the increased estimate, saying the average was closer to $11 a month.
Rates for electricity would be lower, but a new "network use charge" would tack on a fee for using the utility's power lines. Thomas said the charge would be about 4 or 5 cents a kilowatt, based on a customer's average hourly use, excluding late at night.
Traditional electricity customers would not see a change in their bills.
