Ratepayers

Taking the Public Out of the Public Utilities Commission

We know about Governor Jerry Brown's utility friends and the top staffers he handpicked from their ranks. We know about his protection of the secretive Public Utilities Commission (PUC) by vetoing reform bills. We know about the PUC’s protection of Brown himself in refusing to release more than 60 emails that might link him to the commission’s utility-brokered deal to put billions  on the backs of ratepayers to shut down a defective nuclear power plant.  
 

PG&E Proposal Will Monopolize Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Central and Northern CA at Ratepayer Expense

The California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) should reject a PG&E proposal to monopolize electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure on grounds that it will raise costs for ratepayers while stifling innovation. PG&E has proposed to charge ratepayers to install 25,100 EV charging stations, whether or not they are EV drivers.
