Join Our Movement: Expanding the CPUC from 5 to 15 Commissioners

Dear Senator Allen,

Subject: Proposal for Amendment to the California Public Utilities Code - Expansion of the CPUC

I am writing to you as a concerned citizen of California to propose a significant amendment to the California Public Utilities Code, specifically to expand the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) from its current composition of 5 members to 15 members. This proposal is not just a numerical increase; it represents a strategic enhancement to ensure that the CPUC is better equipped to handle the evolving and complex challenges of modern energy regulation, especially as California progresses towards its ambitious renewable energy goals.

The section of the California Public Utilities Code that needs revision is Section 701, which currently stipulates that the CPUC comprises five members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. To address the increasing complexities and demands placed on the CPUC, I propose the following amendment to this section:

Current Language: "The commission shall consist of 5 members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate..."

Proposed Change: "The commission shall consist of 15 members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate..."

This expansion is proposed with the aim of diversifying the range of expertise, enhancing governance capabilities, and strengthening oversight functions within the CPUC. Such reform is critical for ensuring that California remains at the forefront of innovative and effective energy regulation, particularly in light of our state's commitment to renewable energy and sustainable practices. I believe that this proposal requires serious consideration and legislative action. Hence, I am reaching out to you, given your leadership and commitment to environmental issues and your influential role in the California State Senate. Introducing this amendment as a bill would be the first formal step in the legislative process, and your support in this endeavor could be instrumental.

I am available for any further discussion or to provide additional information that might be required. I hope you will consider this proposal favorably and lend your support to initiate the legislative process for this crucial amendment.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. I look forward to your response and support.

Sincerely,

Bradley L. Bartz

Our Campaign: Expanding the CPUC for a Brighter Energy Future

Welcome to SolarPanic.com, the hub of our passionate movement to reshape California's energy future. I am Bradley Bartz, President of ABC Solar Incorporated, and I stand at the forefront of this crucial campaign.

Our mission is clear: We seek to expand the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) from its current 5-member composition to 15 members. This change is not just about increasing numbers; it's about enhancing the breadth of expertise, diversity of perspectives, and depth of oversight that the CPUC urgently needs to face today's energy challenges.

The recent NEM 3.0 ruling has starkly highlighted the CPUC's struggle under its existing structure. The consequences are dire: stunted growth in solar adoption, threats to our renewable energy goals, and a solar industry facing unprecedented challenges. This is not the future we envision for California.

We are advocating for a CPUC that can effectively navigate the complexities of modern energy needs, ensuring fair, sustainable, and forward-thinking energy policies. Our goal aligns with California's ambitious renewable energy targets, aiming to secure a cleaner, greener, and more equitable energy future for all Californians.

This change is essential, and its time is now. Join us in this pivotal movement. Together, we can turn the tide, making California a leading example of how regulatory bodies can adapt and evolve to meet the demands of an ever-changing energy landscape.

Your support, your voice, and your action can make a difference. Be a part of this historic change. Let's move from 5 to 15 for a better future!

Our Campaign for a Fair and Sustainable Energy Future

California stands at a pivotal moment in its energy journey. The challenges we face in integrating renewable energy into our state's grid, ensuring fair energy policies, and achieving our climate goals are unprecedented. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), with its current structure of five members, is overwhelmed and unable to effectively manage these complexities. This has led to policies like NEM 3.0, which have drastically slowed solar adoption and hindered our progress towards renewable energy targets.

As President of ABC Solar Incorporated, I, Bradley Bartz, have witnessed firsthand the impact of these limitations. The need for a more robust, diverse, and capable CPUC has never been more apparent. Our proposal to expand the CPUC from 5 to 15 commissioners is not just a number change; it's a fundamental shift towards better governance, improved expertise, and stronger oversight.

Join us in advocating for this crucial change. Together, we can ensure that California remains a leader in renewable energy and paves the way for a sustainable, equitable energy future.
