$85M in local dollas at stake
Shutting down Cali’s biggest energy generator by 2025 ain’t going smoothly. Diablo infuses our local economy with about $1 BILLION per year, making the proposed $85 million settlement for local economic aid seem like a drop in the bucket (we’re talkin’ a $0.12/month rate hike). Oopsie poopsie, not so fast. A California Utilities Commission judge preliminarily said it violates state law for ratepayers to foot the bill. But don’t fret yet my pet, if needed, we can take our beef up to state Legislature.
