In December 2014, the CPUC issued Decision 14-12-001 to permit CPUC staff to fine electric corporations for violating state rules and regulations. Citations may arise out of an ongoing investigation or when a violation is directly brought to the CPUC’s attention.

Decision 14-12-001 implements an electric safety citation program that is consistent with the requirements included in Senate Bill 291. In response to an application for rehearing, the CPUC issued Decision 15-05-054 in May 2015, modifying Decision 14-12-001 for purposes of clarification, and denying rehearing.

In September 2016, the CPUC issued Decision 16-09-055 adopting improvements to the electric safety citation program.
