Electricity touches nearly every facet of our daily lives. We use electricity to help get us up in the morning, for cooking, cleaning, heat and air conditioning, communication, work and entertainment. You’re using it now to read this article. Electricity is truly a core necessity of our modern lives.
In San Diego our electricity services are generally provided by SDG&E and regulated by the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC). UCAN serves as a consumer advocate representing the interests of utility ratepayers and opposing unjustified rate increases and wasteful spending. Over UCAN’s more than thirty years of advocacy we have consistently challenged SDG&E to justify their revenue requests and helpted contribute to save ratepayers millions of dollars being charged in electricity rates. Learn more about UCAN and the CPUC.
Here are the cases we are currently involved in:
- SDG&E General Rate Case - UCAN is challenging SDG&E's requested $2 Billion in fees.
