How much area does PG&E cover?
Also know, is PGE a monopoly?
PG&E has a monopoly over its coverage area, and Californians are livid. But there may not be much they can do.

Why is my PG and E bill so high?
A 21 percent average increase in charges for customers who receive gas and electric service from December 2015 to December 2016 was a major cause for higher bills, according to Brandi Merlo, a PG&E spokeswoman. She said that, combined with damp and colder days this winter, fueled high heating bills.
