Protect Community Choice Energy in California!

We demand that the California Public Utilities Commission retract the resolution E-4907 that attacks new and existing Community Choice Energy programs.

CCE programs enable communities to provide energy for homes and businesses that is cleaner and cheaper than the existing monopoly utilities. We know that the California Public Utilities Commission has been trying to slow down or stop Community Choice Energy programs across the state, and this resolution is the latest assault on the public interest.

Don't let the PUC interfere with the will of the people of California.

Why is this important?

The California Public Utilities Commission is trying to slow down or stop Community Choice Energy programs across the state. CCE programs enable communities to provide energy for homes and businesses that is cleaner and cheaper than the existing utilities.

CCE programs are already operating successfully in ten counties in California. By the end of 2018, eighteen CCEs will be serving customers, and 16 other jurisdictions are in the process of forming programs. Soon Community Choice will provide more than half the electrical load in the state.

But now the PUC is rushing to put a two-year freeze on new Community Choice programs with Resolution E-4907. The CPUC knows what it’s doing is wrong. They are trying to sneak through the resolution, without public hearing, at the height of the holiday season, hoping no one is looking — but they’ve been caught by alert Community Choice advocates.

Sign our petition to demand that the CPUC scrap this dangerous resolution before midnight on Wednesday, January 10th.

Reasons for signing

  • Support people, not big corporate profiteering
  • Everything is not to be consumed by profiteers. The PUC does not get to sell us our rights to renewable energy. We cannot be held hostage and ransomed for the infrastructure we have throughout our public lands.
  • Citizens deserve to choose where their energy comes from. With the climate changing, we have no choice but to step up and be responsible consumers
