CalCCA Statement on Passage of SB 350
“The California Community Choice Association appreciates the state’s efforts, through the passage of SB 350, the Golden State Energy Act, to ensure that a “Plan B” is in place should PG&E fail to exit bankruptcy, and/or fail in its safety performance under the terms of an enhanced oversight and enforcement process adopted by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). We share the state’s desire to see PG&E regain its financial footing, fully compensate wildfire victims, and embrace a culture that is hyper-focused on the safety of its electric system and the people of California. At the same time, we encourage the state to support local government efforts to expand electricity options and provide more transparent and accountable alternatives to monopoly utility service in their communities.”
About CalCCA: Launched in 2016, the California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) represents California’s community choice electricity providers before the state Legislature and at regulatory agencies, advocating for a level playing field and opposing policies that unfairly discriminate against CCAs and their customers. There are currently 21 operational CCA programs in California serving approximately 10 million customers.
