California's a pretty big State with many independent utility companies having jurisdiction of many Counties. A real estate forum probably isn't the greatest venue to find out this type of info but here's a little info for you. Hope it helps.

Hi Rudy,

I would need to know what you are comparing these costs to, that you are concerned they will go up. Also need to know your current usage (will that change?),what city you will buy in and what type of property?

Thanks,

James
