California's Unfair Energy Policy

CALIFORNIA'S UNFAIR ENERGY POLICY brought to you by: miyjěnERGyBiLL fixl! .com Prior to the energy crisis, all customers helped contribute to improvements in the state's electricity program. By 2009, the rate structure was so unfair that the legislature was forced to pass SB 695, providing temporary relief. In 2001, the legislature passed a law preventing the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) from altering rates for many energy consumers. NED But the current structure is unsustainable. Now, many families, seniors, and small business are paying up to 400% more than their neighbors for the very same energy. UNLESS You Support AB 327 And THIS SUMMER, it's going to get worse. Those already struggling to pay their bill will have their rates increased another 30-40 percent!

In California’s regulated energy market, utility companies do not profit from, or decide, the amount they can charge their customers. Over 1 million households making over $100,000 a year pay less than the amount it costs for Just 30% of energy users will bear the burden of 100% energy companies to power their homes of the coming increase in electricity costs. These customers are penalized into paying up to 300% of the actual cost of energy because they use more than the "Baseline" amount of energy. Making rates fairer will encourage more consumers to conserve energy and investment in alternative energy. Over 1/3 of those paying more than their fair share Average residential energy rates have increased for energy earn less than $60,000 34% a year. 100% The cost of energy, adjusted for inflation, has actually decreased " for some customers by about 15%, while it has increased almost 100% for others.
