CPUC to hold May 11 voting meeting in Merced
April 17, 2017
• To vote on PG&E rate increases
• Discussion also set on how to increase access to affordable power
Central Valley residents will have a more convenient way to see the powerful California Public Utilities Commission in action next month.
The commission has scheduled its May 11 “voting meeting” for Merced instead of San Francisco, its usual location.
The commissioners are scheduled to discuss and vote on proposed policies, including PG&E’s General Rate Case, which forms the basis of customer rates for 2017-2019.
Options to increase access to affordable energy in San Joaquin Valley disadvantaged communities are also to be discussed.
The “voting meeting” begins with public comment, and members of the public are encouraged to attend. Those intending to make public comment can sign-up to speak in person before the meeting starts, or can sign-up online in advance at the link at the end of this article.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 11 in the Merced City Council Chambers, 678 W. 18th St., Merced.
The CPUC typically holds voting meetings twice a month at its headquarters in San Francisco, and also schedules voting meetings in other cities throughout the state.
The meeting is also available via a listen-only call-in number at 1-800-857-1917, passcode 92105
