California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) President Picker requests informal comments from the public on the CPUC’s Staff White Paper titled “Consumer and Retail Choice, the Role of the Utility, and an Evolving Regulatory Framework,” published May 9, 2017, and on the questions posed to the panelist at the Joint CPUC and California Energy Commission (CEC) En Banc on The Changing Nature of Consumer and Retail Choice in California, held on May 19, 2017. The White Paper and the video of the En Banc are available at www.cpuc.ca.gov/
Parties are encouraged to focus on the questions that were asked of the panelists that most closely represent you or your organizations interests. Parties are welcomed to attach any reports that they want to the CPUC to consider as appendices to their comments. The page limit on comments is two pages for comments on the White Paper and two pages for each set of questions posed to a panelist at the En Banc. Comments may include reports as appendices, which will not count against the page limit. These informal comments are not part of a formal proceeding and will not be part of a proceeding record. However, if the comments relate to a formal CPUC proceeding, the CPUC’s Rules of Practice and Procedure for ex parte communications will apply.
Comments shall be submitted to Suzanne.Casazza@cpuc.ca.gov by June 16, 2017.
