On Thursday, the California Public Utilities Commission is set to vote on a proposed fee increase for customers of city-owned community choice aggregation electricity programs, like San Francisco’s CleanPowerSF, to offset the costs of infrastructure upgrades by the states large private utilities, including PG&E. 

The large utility companies argue that it is unfair for their customers to be responsible for shouldering the full costs of the system-wide improvements.

Mayor London Breed, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, and San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo released a joint statement urging the CPUC to delay the vote and give the public a chance to review and respond to the proposal through a thorough and transparent public process.
