PG&E is proposing major changes in the electricity system in Central and Northern California.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, they include: potentially reduced savings on electricity bills for people who switch to solar, a reduced credit for solar customers who have a surplus of electricity and a charge based on when a solar customer uses electricity.

If changes are approved by state regulators, they will take effect in 2017 and won't affect the existing base of solar electricity customers that the utility has helped connect to the power grid.
