January 20, 2016 (San Diego) -- The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will hold a community forum in San Diego on Tuesday, February 2 at 6 p.m. to discuss and answer questions about the CPUC’s July 2015 decision to significantly change residential electricity rates, including the requirement that starting in 2019 all residential customers will be offered time of use rates as a default. The event will be held at the Jacobs Center, 404 Euclid Avenue, San Diego 92114.
According to the CPUC, the July 2015 decision “transitioned the state’s residential electricity rates to a more effective and cost-based structure, empowering consumers with more opportunities to conserve, and promoting resource optimization and grid reliability.” At this public forum, the CPUC will discuss time of use rates, the transition from four to two rate tiers, the economic and environmental benefits of these new rates, and the CPUC’s plans to work closely with utilities and communities throughout California to ensure that consumers are ready for these changes.
