Public Utilities Commission: Hold PG&E Accountable!

PG&E’s negligence has caused fires that killed dozens of Californians. Now they want to make us pay for their negligence. PG&E is asking the California Public Utilities Commission  (CPUC) for permission to raise our rates to pay their expenses for liability payments and for the safety measures they were supposed to be doing all along.

According to the district court judge overseeing PG&E’s probation for its felony criminal convictions, PG&E “pumped out $4.5 billion in profits and let the tree [trimming] budget wither.” They have not yet paid anything to victims of the Camp Fire — but they found $204,800 to contribute to Gov. Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign

Tell the CPUC to stop the rate hikes and hold PG&E accountable! Join The Utility Reform Network, the No PG&E Bailout Coalition, and others at CPUC hearings on the proposed rate hikes. The CPUC will hold these hearings throughout the PG&E service area in July in August. In the Bay Area:
