Upcoming Public Participation Hearings and Certain Events

 

Frontier Transfer Proceeding (A.20-05-010)

The CPUC is holding a remote participation public forum to hear from you about Frontier Communications Corporation's request.

What is Frontier asking? On May 22, 2020, Frontier Communications Corporation and its California local exchange and long-distance subsidiaries filed an application to transfer the control of these companies (Frontier). Frontier has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which proposes to reorganize its corporate structure among other things. California law requires the California Public Utilities Commission (Commission) to weigh in on situations when there may be a transfer or encumbrance of utility property. The Commission opened a proceeding, Application (A.) 20-05-010 to review Frontier's application and decide whether to reject or approve it.

Due to the Governor’s directive and the CPUC’s ongoing efforts to protect customers and community members during COVID-19, there will be no in-person physical location for these public forums.

Written public comments may also be provided at any time during the proceeding using the “Add Public Comment” button on the “Public Comment” tab of the Docket Card for A.20-05-010, available at https://apps.cpuc.ca.gov/apex/f?p=401:56:0::NO:RP,57,RIR:P5_PROCEEDING_SELECT:A2005010.

Prior to the public forum listed below, there will also be a workshop on the proceeding on October 7, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We hope you join us remotely to make your voice heard. If you intend to make comment, please call into the meeting.

PG&E General Rate Case Phase II (A.19-11-019)

The CPUC is holding a remote participation public forum to hear from you about Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E)'s requests regarding revenue allocation and rate design changes in its 2020 Phase II General Rate Case (GRC) Application.

What is PG&E requesting? On November 22, 2019, PG&E filed a 2020 GRC Phase II Application requesting CPUC approval to update its electric marginal costs, revenue allocation, and rate design. The purpose of Phase II of the GRC is to determine the cost each customer class is responsible for and to determine the rate schedules for each customer class.

On February 28, 2020, a ruling was issued in this proceeding noticing several public forums throughout PG&E’s service territory. In response to restrictions on public gatherings resulting from COVID-19, on March 18, 2020, an email ruling cancelled all public forums until further notice. This ruling reestablishes the timing of the public forums and associated notice requirements.

Due to the Governor’s directive and the CPUC’s ongoing efforts to protect customers and community members during COVID-19, there will be no in-person physical location for these public forums.

Written public comments may also be provided at any time during the proceeding using the “Add Public Comment” button on the “Public Comment” tab of the Docket Card for A.19-11-019, available at https://cpuc.ca.gov/A1911019Comment.
