Upcoming Public Participation Hearings

Proceeding to Consider Future of Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Storage Facility (I.17-02-002)

This Public Participation Hearing is an opportunity for local residents and organizations to provide their perspective and input to the CPUC regarding the proposed scope and schedule for this proceeding. The purpose of the proceeding is to examine the long-term viability of the Aliso Canyon gas storage facility. The scope of the proceeding does not include the immediate question of whether the facility should be reopened for injection in 2017, but rather the long-term feasibility of minimizing or eliminating the use of the facility while still maintaining energy and electric reliability for the Los Angeles region, consistent with maintaining just and reasonable rates.
