Ratepayers will pay $64 million for seismic tests

Posted by Christine, September 7, 2012

The California Public Utilities Commission approved additional charges to customers to pay for seismic studies that have now sparked protests against them.

“In this reopened application, Pacific Gas and Electric Company requests authority to recover in customer rates an additional $47.5 million above the $16.73 million approved in Decision 10-08-003, for a total of $64.25 million, to perform additional seismic studies recommended by the California Energy Commission. We grant the application.”

The California Fish & Game Commission has scheduled a special meeting to consider the issue, although it’s unclear what authority they have over the project. Comments are welcome.  Send them to fgc@fgc.ca.gov, mailing address is: California Fish & Game Commission, PO Box 944209, Sacramento, CA 94244-2090., before the September 24 meeting.
