California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is encouraging consumers to attend its public participation hearings on April 5 regarding the request of San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Gas Company to establish Wildfire Expense Balancing Accounts for recovery of wildfire-related costs.
The hearings will be in Al Bahr Shriners Center, 5440 Kearny Mesa Road, San Diego, with the first session beginning at 2 p.m. and the second session starting at 6 p.m.
The hearings will allow the public to comment on whether the uninsured 2007 fire costs should be included in the Wildfire Expense Balancing Account mechanism. Comments from the public can help the CPUC reach an informed decision, stated a spokesperson for the CPUC.
Written comments may be submitted to: CPUC Public Advisor, 505 Van Ness Ave., Room 2103, San Francisco, CA 94102 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refer to application number A.09-08-020 on any written or email correspondence. All public comments received are provided to the CPUC’s commissioners and the administrative law judge assigned to the case.
While a quorum of commissioners and/or their staff may attend the hearings, no official action will be taken.
