WE ARE WORKING TO:

Achieve climate resiliency with a comprehensive approach to managing forests and other lands as well as energy infrastructure that gives utilities and markets certainty.

Upgrade the emergency response system and provide communities the resources they need to meet the demands of climate change and resulting natural disasters.

Hold utilities accountable with clear standards so that if the CPUC disallows wildfire costs, it should be because the utility acted imprudently and that imprudence was a significant contributing cause of the wildfire.

Ensure state and local governments, energy companies and communities work together to reach California’s goal of delivering 50% of our energy from renewable resources by the year 2030.

Preserve healthy, stable public and investor-owned utilities to continue to play their vital role in powering the world’s 5th largest economy.
