Bailouts Don’t Make Customers Safer, or Cover Their Damages
Utility customers, many of whom are already struggling with low wages and high housing costs, cannot afford to pay billions extra for wildfire damage caused by PG&E, Edison and SDG&E. As it is, utility companies disconnect energy service for 860,000 households every year because they have fallen behind in paying their monthly bills. Bailing out utilities with rate increases will only make matters worse.
Join TURN in urging Governor elect Newsom to immediately reject another bailout, and instead seek consumer driven solutions advocated by TURN including a wildfire insurance fund. We’ll deliver your demands after he takes office in January.
