CalCCA Action Alert: Executive Director Beth Vaughan to Testify at Legislative Hearings Focusing on PG&E Bankruptcy and California’s Energy Future

CalCCA members and partners:

As the PG&E bankruptcy unfolds in the courts and in news headlines, CalCCA is proud to work together with partners like you to protect reliable and affordable service for ratepayers while accelerating progress toward the state’s climate goals.

Today, those efforts will take CalCCA Executive Director Beth Vaughan to the State Capitol, where she will testify in an important hearing of the Senate’s Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee. The hearing will begin shortly, at 9:30 a.m. 

Representing California’s 19 operational CCAs, customers, and the association’s affiliate members, Beth will discuss the implications of the PG&E bankruptcy on:

  • Billing and service agreements with PG&E
  • Wholesale supply purchases
  • Compliance with renewables portfolio standards and California’s larger energy goals
  • All ratepayers

On Wednesday, March 6, Beth will testify before the Assembly Utilities and Energy Committee at an informational hearing titled, The Metamorphosis of the Energy Sector: Maintaining reliability and affordability on the road to decarbonization.

The hearings are part of a much bigger conversation about climate change and our evolving energy market. CalCCA welcomes the opportunity to work with you to share our common vision of California’s energy and climate future.
