CPUC DRA Moves To Strike $118 Million Part of SDG&E Rate Hike Proposal

The Division of Ratepayer Analysts of the California Public Utilities Commission has filed a motion to strip a $118 million billing request from San Diego Gas and Electric Company's PeakShift at Work/PeakShift at Home rate hike proposal. The $118 million would be billed to all SDG&E customers for a 2010-2015 television and print advertising campaign to tell us not to use power during the business day. Other uses for the money would include other expenses that CPUC DRA are better left to SDG&E's next general rate case.

Even without the $118 million for SDG&E advertising and other PSW/PSH support, the overall request is designed to send customers a high-price signal to have small businesses and residential consumers vacate daytime usage to the advantage fo larger, industrial-sized SDG&E customers.

Now for the $118 million question:

Who has the Division of Ratepayer Analysts of the California Public Utilities Commission filed a motion WITH?

Is this just a PR 'TRICK" to make everyone look good or is this a real serious attempt to ease the billing pain of all the folks on a fixed income and or all the unemployed Californians instead of lining the pockets of the SDG&E stockholders?
