San Diego County households and businesses will have bigger energy bills this September as San Diego Gas and Electric is raising rates.
"This is the most significant rate hike we've seen in the history of Sullivan Solar Power," said Erica Johnson, director of community relations at Sullivan Solar Power. "We've seen a significant spike in business and inquiries. Actually, we've received the most inquiries we've ever received in the history of our company."
More and more people are going solar, contributing to 69 percent growth in the solar industry in 2011.
