CPUC Public Hearings on Power Lines & Wildfires

Tuesday, March 17 2009
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Al Bahr Shriners Center
5440 Kearny Mesa Road
San Diego, Ca 92111

The CPUC NEEDS to hear that deferred spending on power-line maintenance (including vegetation trimming) is NO LONGER acceptable AND that we don't need additonal power-line hazards in wildfire country when we can generate clean, renewable energy on SoCal rooftops and low-profile wind turbines.


The CPUC is conducting an Order Instituting Rulemaking (OIR) to potentially change CPUC rule(s) regarding power lines and wildfires. The Mussey Grade Road Alliance is a party to this OIR. The OIR potentially affects the three major investor owned utilities (SDG&E, SCE and PG&E) as well as telecommunication companies. The Administrative Law Judge has just ruled on three Public Participation Hearings to be held on this OIR. See this link: http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/efile/RULINGS/96478.pdf
