Our Power, Our Choice


The vote that the Commission had scheduled for September 27 has been postponed until October 11. We interpret this delay as a sign that the deluge of opposition from you and over 120 local government elected leaders to the utility-supported alternative proposal is causing the Commission’s delay.

***Please keep sending your comments to the Commission. It makes a difference!***

ACTION ALERT: Community Choice Energy threatened; Act Before October 11

Notification from the Center for Climate Protection, September 5, 2018; for questions or more information, contact Woody Hastings

Community Choice Energy threatened by pending State regulation – Contact CPUC Commissioners & State legislators

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is on the verge of a decision that could adversely affect Community Choice Energy. The decision is about the long-standing exit fee controversy. (The exit fee is formally named the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment, or PCIA) There are several options before the Commission and we invite you to join us in urging the Commissioners to choose the option that is the most fair and favorable to all parties, including Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) and their customers.

The Center for Climate Protection supports the "Administrative Law Judge’s Proposed Decision" (see our August 2 blog) before the CPUC to modify the "exit fee" methodology. We oppose the "alternative proposed decision."

Here are ways you can help:

  • Email the CPUC Commissioners and Staffers. Their email addresses and the letter suggested by the Center for Climate Protection are here.
  • Contact your Legislators and ask them to sign onto this letter. Most of us are represented by State Senator Pat Bates and Assembly Member Rocky Chavez . You can look up your representatives here.
  • Attend the October 11 CPUC meeting, starting at 9:30am at the CPUC San Francisco Office, 505 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA 94102. Considerations for public comment are here.
