Everyone Benefits from Clean Energy and Electric System Reliability, So Everyone Should Pay their Fair Share

The way people buy energy is changing and more customers are buying power from sources other than their utility. If we are to continue California’s progress in meeting our clean energy and environmental goals, we must ensure that all customers continue to contribute equitably in the costs of clean energy and other resources purchased on their behalf.

Current laws to protect customers from paying for power investments made on behalf of others are not working. As more alternative energy providers form, there are going to be fewer remaining utility customers left paying an increasing cost for power purchased for others.

To address this problem, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) recently opened a formal proceeding to review the mechanism often referred to as the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment or PCIA…

WE BELIEVE THE CPUC AND POLICYMAKERS NEED TO ACT QUICKLY TO ENSURE EQUITABLE ENERGY CHOICE

That means all electricity customers will share equitably for past power purchases made on their behalf. No customer, regardless of whether they move to an alternative power provider or stay with the utility, shall be left paying for power purchased for others.

WE SUPPORT REGULATORY CHANGES TO ENSURE ALL CUSTOMERS CONTRIBUTE EQUITABLY TO LONG-TERM CLEAN ENERGY AND OTHER RESOURCES AND NO CUSTOMER IS LEFT PAYING FOR POWER PURCHASED FOR OTHERS.
