100 PERCENT CLEAN ENERGY FOR CALIFORNIA
NO on AB 813 that would regionalize the grid
This is similar to what some folks pushed on California in the 1990’s, when Enron took advantage of the speculative energy market which cost California millions of dollars. This bill will see energy jobs leave California which working class unions strongly oppose. California would import dirty energy like coal power from neighboring states. The bill would cede local control of CAISO (California Independent System Operator) to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and once done cannot be un-done.
Former Chair of the PUC Loretta Lynch has been explaining dire warnings about the state losing control of the grid operating system to FERC especially at a time when those commissioners are appointed by the president. Experts have explained to us that there is no market advantage in this proposal that we do not already have.
