Watch tonight for more on the proposed rate increase.

Evening Edition airs weekdays at 5 PM and 6:30 PM on KPBS TV.

Public hearings are underway in San Diego about a $1.1-billion rate increase over the next four years proposed by San Diego Gas and Electric.

The request would boost an average gas bill by about 4 percent and an electric bill by 5 percent.

But just a month since the big blackout may not be the best time to ask for more money from ratepayers. And a consumer advocate group says SDG&E should actually be lowering rates, not increasing them.
