The CPUC is holding a series of Public Participation Hearings regarding PG&E’s application proposing rates for gas transmission and storage services for 2015-2017 (A.13-12-012). PG&E requests a revenue requirement of $1.286 billion for 2015, $1.347 billion for 2016, and $1.515 billion for 2017. PG&E requests that the new rates go into effect on January 1, 2015. The Public Participation Hearings are as follows and your City is the highlighted one.
