SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego Gas and Electric is addressing another round of higher-than-normal energy bills, saying it’s no mistake.

In an email sent to customers this week, SDG&E said July 1 through August 21 was the hottest on record in their territory.

The heat wave drove up power usage and power bills. SDG&E said even coastal residents were steadily running their air conditioners during that period.

The SDG&E email included tips for keeping power use lower. Among them: signing up for alerts, so you know your power tier.
