    PG&E is regulated by the state PUC (Public Utilities Commission) they regulate privately-owned utilities in your state, including electric power, telecommunications, natural gas and water companies.and all rate increases must be approved through this entity. For example, I live in California so my PUC is the CPUC, (California Public Utilities Commission),

    If I were you, I'd file a complaint concerning these rate increases and what will wind up happening is you'll get a call from PG&E executive in attempt to explain why the increases were needed. All complaints filed with the PUC are then handed off to the utility to handle. If they don't handle the complaint properly, (to your satisfaction) the utility can get fined by the PUC.

    I'll link a website below that shows you how to file a complaint.

    Good luck.

    All rate increased need to be approved by the Public Service Commission of your state. Rates just can not be increased without governmental approval.
