Information Sessions

At the information sessions prior to the public comment forums, there will be tables hosted by PG&E, the CPUC, and other groups participating in the proceeding. These groups are called "parties" to the proceeding, and they advocate for different perspectives, such as small businesses, agricultural customers, and residential customers. Attendees will be able to stop by each table and get information on the proceeding and ask questions.

Public Comment Forums

The public comment forums, called Public Participation Hearings, will begin with a brief overview of PG&E's rate increase request, and then public comments will be heard.  The CPUC Administrative Law Judges assigned to these cases will preside over each public comment forum. The Administrative Law Judges are scheduled to write Proposed Decisions in these matters for CPUC Commissioners' consideration by the end of the year. The CPUC welcomes attendance and participation, as public comments help the CPUC reach an informed decision.

Workshop: Consumer Protections for Rooftop Solar Customers

The CPUC is developing improved consumer protection programs for Californians who use the Net Energy Metering (NEM) program to go solar. This public forum is an opportunity to share community concerns, learn about current consumers protections, and identify ways to improve protections. We have invited other state agencies with authority over various parts of the solar industry to share their progress in protecting solar consumers and discuss solutions for customers who currently have concerns with their solar systems. Please join us! Spanish/English interpretation provided.
