SDG&E’s Wildfire Cost Recovery Request(A.15-09-010)

We are holding Public Participation  Hearings to hear directly from consumers about San Diego Gas & Electric’s request to recover $379 million in costs it says are related to the Witch, Guejito, and Rice wildfires that occurred in SDG&E’s service territory in October 2007. The CPUC’s Public Participation Hearings will allow the public to comment on whether SDG&E’s operation and management of its facilities prior to the 2007 Wildfires were reasonable.  Prior CPUC decisions indicate that a reasonableness standard should entail a review on the prudency of SDG&E’s actions leading up to the fire.
