Another reason to vote no on Prop.16; a scam by PG&E to virtually eliminate the pos8363sibility of competition.

You're absolutely right.... Sadly, the ignorant voter that believes the ads, and pays no attention to the fact that it is almost solely paid for by PG&E, will vote yes. More sadly, there are enough of these voters, that it will probably pass. Even my nephew went Facebook, telling everyone the importance of people protecting their right to vote by voting yes on Prop 16. I believe in our right to vote, but Prop 16, as you have pointed out, is PG&E's attempt to completely monopolize the market. Remember, this is the same company that, before coming out of bankruptcy, said that upon coming out they would be lowering rates for residential and raising it for business. The first thing they did when they came out of bankruptcy was apply for an INCREASE for residential, and a DECREASE for business rates!

PG&E is also the company that mortgaged the futures of all of their customers by borrowing from DWR to buy overpriced electricity. We are all now paying the price to cover the cost of the repayment bonds.
Funny thing is, they can't seem to put a figure on those costs or have any idea when they will be paid off. So I guess we will have those additional charges tacked on our bills forever.
If any of us choose to terminate our relationship with PG&E and go off the grid, we will have to pay a "departing load" fee to cover "our share" of those costs...even though we never authorized them to make those expenditures on our behalf. And they have no clue as to what "our share" is when asked.
The article is about the "smart meters", anyway. I will damn sure be keeping a close eye on my usage when I am blessed with one of those jewels sometime in the next couple of months. PG&E is scrambling to get them all installed before the backlash causes a cease and desist order.
