That would be a regulated monopoly. I would be fine just adding the kWh to my residential bill.

Our regulated monopoly has a board of utility company executives. Hence why California power is some of the most expensive in the US.

I think it has more to do with the fact CA has mostly investor owned Electric utilities vs municipal owned.
We just pay pay pay forever that guaranteed return on assets buying them over and over again.

As former California resident, I remember the promise of deregulation and privatization in the 70s. Fundamental things like power were supposed to be best handled by privatization, without concern that shareholders expect a return. California does have some municipalities that still manage their own power and offer lower rates than PG&E or Southern Edison.

Unfortunately the California Energy Commission doesn't report rates in an easy to locate database. You have to go to each provider for their tariff sheets. Modesto Irrigation District is about 5 cents cheaper than PG&E per tier, but PG&E has far too many rate plans for the average consumer to figure out.


And we can't forget that lobbying in California pays dividends for Utilities that are privately run. You can get regulation changes that allow you to defer maintenance in order to meet profit targets.
