July 5, 2014 (El Cajon)-- Please take a look at this video presentation I created to be presented to the CPUC.

The proponents of the $3.3 billion settlement proposal have met with the CPUC commissioners and their advisors in private meetings.  They would not allow me to make this power-point presentation at the recent public meeting. However, we are allowed to have private meetings of the same length as those granted to the proponents.

Instead of going up to SF and meeting privately, I decided it was a better course of action to create this video presentation  that makes our case as clearly as possible, PLUS it allows you to follow along and hopefully spread the word.

You may have heard that the settlement represents a $1.4 billion rebate to consumers. The reality is that it is an unprecedented money grab of $3.3 billion, about $2.8 billion more than it should be, or a $4.2 billion savings from their original request.

The audacity of these corporations is always startling.

Please call your legislator and let them know they need to start an investigation into the CPUC's handling of this! Use this tool to get contact information:
