How Much Was Your December PG&E Bill?

Dry cold December weather probably had you turning up the heat. And now you've got to pay for it.

A cold December means consumers are paying the price in January.

Novato Patch readers started an interesting discussion on our Boards, lamenting their December gas and electric bills.

With the cold snap early in the month breaking records all over the place, you were probably cranking up the heat much more than usual.

And with a record number of Spare the Air Days (11 consecutive no-burn days around Christmas), one reader pointed out that he wasn't able to use his fireplace insert, adding to his increased heating costs.

I live in a 3200 sq ft home which is fully insulated and all my appliance are energy efficient and Just became an empty nester this last fall. My November bill was $285. and my December bill was $769. Maybe it's because I do not have a smart meter? do any of you who commented here still have the old meter?

Our bill was approx. $200 for November and $426 for December which was double same time last year. We keep our heat at 58 at night & turn it up to 62 in the morning when we get up & off in the afternoon. We do have the Smart Meter!
