Alert: Stop energy rate hikes in California

Monday, November 6, 2023, 6:17 am | Randy Thomasson

When public officials don’t love and are therefore not public servants, but instead are self-centered and corrupt, “public infrastructure” that used to work well begins breaking down.

And that’s exactly what has happened to California’s statewide electricity grid. It started with Democrat politicians prostituting themselves to the environmental-wacko groups that worship trees and weeds.

Consequently, after years of Democrat-controlled government refusing to thin out forests and wilderness areas (this purposeful neglect ramped up during Jerry Brown’s last term commencing in 2015), resulting in more than 100 million dead trees, thus inviting “monster fires” resulting from arcs and sparks from aging power lines, the utility covering the most square miles, Pacific Gas & Electric, with 5.5 million electricity customers, which Newsom & Co. blamed for past wildfires (while Newsom himself has decreased wildfire prevention) and forced PG&E to pay $55 million in a 2022 settlement, is now proposing to hike their electricity rates by 26%, which PG&E claims is needed to move power lines underground.

Yet there’s been no independent (from a conservative state) aggressive audit of PG&E to identify its waste. And Californians are hurting with Democrats in charge (who won’t permit deregulation and the resulting competition to provide a cheap, stable supply of energy).

So just say no to PG&E’s money grab, especially in light of Newsom & Co. refusing to aggressively manage trees and brush. The Newsom-appointed California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is scheduled to vote Nov. 16 on both the PG&E rate hike and a proposed statewide rate hike on renters, small farmers, and schools with solar panels (all those with multi-meter properties). Learn more about this solar steal, which is outright theft because California doesn’t even have enough transmission lines for “excess” solar energy.

ACT NOW: Oppose rate hikes! Contact Newsom’s “public utilities” commissioners and contact Newsom too.

1. Call and email the CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission). 866-849-8390 public.advisor@cpuc.ca.gov.

Say, “Oppose all rate hikes and solar steals — stop making us poorer!”

2. Call and email presidential wanna-be Gavin Newsom’s office M-F 9-5 at 916-445-2841 and anytime at https://www.gov.ca.gov/contact. Newsom appointed these CPUC commissioners and has huge influence. Urge Newsom: “Tell the CPUC to Oppose all rate hikes and solar steals. These are your appointees and this is on your watch.”

3. You can attend and speak at the next CPUC meeting Nov. 16 in Imperial County at 11am at the County Office of Education, Building E, 1398 Sperber Road in El Centro. Wouldn’t it be great to have peaceful protestors with signs outside as early as 9:30am?

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well.
The Bible, James 2:8
