San Diego Gas & Electric customers will get a $124 million refund in the form of a credit on their electric bills as a result of an over-collection, a state utility regulatory agency announced today.
SDG&E requested the California Public Utilities Commission approve the refund after it determined it over-collected through its Energy Resource Recovery Account.
The refund will be the form of a one-time credit on electric bills issued on or after Oct. 1, according to the CPUC.
CPUC President Michael R. Peevey said about 60 percent of SDG&E's residential customers will get a credit on their bills that range from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars.
Of the customers receiving a credit, about half will receive $35 or more, with the average credit per customer of about $71, according to the CPUC.
