Guess what? Golden State Water files for rate increase
Golden State Water Company has filed an application with the California Public Utilities Commission requesting to increase its rates over a three-year period for the years 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Golden State Water is regulated by the state of California to ensure rates reflect the full cost to provide water service, maintain the infrastructure and make system improvements. Every three years, Golden State is required to file a General Rate Case (GRC) with the state to propose a rate structure.
In the GRC application, Golden State is proposing more $14.1 million in infrastructure investments to address water supply, storage and distribution needs to its service areas. The process takes approximately 18 months. Customers are encouraged to participate in the ratemaking proceedings.
