Below is an email from Tiemo von Zweck, a MoveOn member from Encinitas who created a petition at SignOn.org that is getting a lot of attention and may be of interest to people in your area. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Dear San Diego MoveOn member,

San Diego Gas & Electric already has some of the most expensive rates in the country, yet they are currently lobbying officials to dramatically increase fees to regular customers, and at the same time create all new fees for solar users.

That's why I created this petition on SignOn.org to our elected officials and the California Public Utilities Commission asking them to oppose SDG&E's rate hikes. By signing you will help curb the cost of your future electric bill while also helping the environment by denying SDG&E the ability to inhibit the use of solar electricity. The petition says:

Dear public servant, please stop San Diego Gas & Electric's attempt to raise its already industry-high rates, as well as their campaign to inhibit the use of solar energy by imposing dramatic increases in fees to the users of solar electricity. These unjust fee hikes, if approved, would set an extremely damaging, nationwide precedent for other utility companies to follow that would have a huge, adverse effect on this country's transition to solar energy.
