Despite the tough economic times facing Californians, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) wants more of your money. PG&E wants to ask the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for a $4.9 billion rate increase – which would raise your rates by an astounding 33%. Yet PG&E’s rates are already higher than most electric utilities in California!
Struggling customers will face substantially higher electric bills while PG&E boosts profits. We want PG&E to improve safety, but we can’t just write a blank check! PG&E won’t say how they’ll spend the money – we need them to be accountable for promised repairs instead of placing an increased burden on California consumers.
We need you to act today! Please share how increased utility rates would impact your family, then click send to tell the CPUC that you OPPOSE PG&E’s $4.9 billion dollar rate increase.
Take action NOW to fight this rate increase!
By taking action you will join AARP's online advocacy network and will receive urgent news and action alerts on the issues that matter most to older Americans.
Dear Public Utility Commission,
Sincerely, [Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
