Public Utilities Commission: Oppose PG&E Rate Hikes For $1.282 Billion in 2014
PG&E is applying for rate increases of $1.282 Billion in 2014, $492 Million in 2015, and $504 Million in 2016. During the years of 1976 to 1984 Abalone Alliance, several other groups, and individuals protested the operation of Nuclear Power at Diablo Canyon upon a Chumash Sacred Burial Ground. In 1981 the Public Utilities Commission approved a rate hike of $200 Million with the promise that Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant will be decommissioned in 30 years. Here it is 2013 and instead of spending Millions upon Billions of dollars on a Nuclear Power Plant that is surrounded by 12 earthquake faults and 2 right next to it with a history of Tsunamis while it participates in Uranium mining that causes Radioactive Isotopes and the creation of extremely hazardous, radioactive material that persists in the environment for tens of thousands of years a promise should be kept and investments should be made towards fear free energy and decommissioning Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. With actions like San Luis Obispo schools adding solar panels and the creation of the solar farm at Carrizo Plains it has become obvious that we are ready to go in a cleaner direction with the best interest of future generations in mind.

This letter is to oppose the Rate Increase that PG&E is currently applying for. In 1981 the CPUC had approved a rate increase to PG&E of $600 million dollars with the promise that Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant would be decommissioned in 30 years. It has been brought to my attention that not only is PG&E applying for a rate hike of $1.282 billion in January of 2014, but also $492 million in 2015, and $504 million in 2016. I truly believe that approving these rate increases would be irresponsible without having a proposal of the decommissioning of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant on the table. We now have the means to have more use of alternative energy. There is no reason for Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant to continue participating in the uranium mining that produces radioactive isotopes or the creation of extremely hazardous, radioactive material that persists in the environment for tens of thousands of years that is stored on its premises. The operation of nuclear power plants is not without potential accidents, with serious consequences.
