CPUC Public Hearings on PG&E Rates

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) invites you to join us in San Francisco for Public Participation Hearings on PG&E’s application to increase rates and charges for electric and gas service effective January 1, 2017.

WHEN:             Wednesday July 20 @ 1:00 and 6:00 PM

WHERE:           CPUC Auditorium
                         505 Van Ness Avenue
                         San Francisco, CA 94102

Every three years, PG&E is required to file an application with the CPUC called a General Rate Case requesting approval to increase rates to operate, maintain, and upgrade their electric distribution, gas distribution, and electric generation facilities. 

The General Rate Case decided by the CPUC sets these rates for the next three years (2017-2019).  At the Public Participation Hearings, PG&E will make a presentation summarizing their requests to the CPUC.  In addition, the CPUC’s Office of Ratepayer Advocates will present on their review of PG&E’s requests.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!  The purpose of Public Participation Hearings is to document your comments about PG&E’s request to increase rates so that your input can be incorporated into the administrative record used by the CPUC to make its final decision.  In addition, PG&E customer service representatives will be present to assist with individual customer billing and service concerns.  

CPUC President Michael Picker and/or Administrative Law Judge Stephen C. Roscow will preside over this hearing.  While there may be a quorum of Commissioners present, no voting will occur.  If special arrangements are needed, such as sign and/or foreign language interpreters, please contact the CPUC Public Advisor’s Office at 1-866-849-8391 or 1-415-703-2074 or email: public.advisor@cpuc.ca.gov at least three days prior to the hearing.
