It is beyond preposterous that SDG&E still seeks approval to stick San Diego County ratepayers with the cost of the 2007 firestorm that burned nearly 200,000 acres, destroyed more than 1,300 structures and killed two people. It’s especially outrageous to those victims who lost their homes and even loved ones and are now being asked to help pay for the utility company’s mistakes. From a financial standpoint, ratepayers in San Diego County have had enough of these exorbitant costs that continue to come through the pipeline. Along with SDG&E’s proposal to recoup costs from the 2007 wildfires, ratepayers are still on the hook for the more than $3.3 billion settlement agreement relating to the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), which was caused by faulty generators Even state investigators immediately following the 2007 firestorm disaster concluded that SDG&E power lines were to blame. I strongly urge you to stand up for San Diego County residents and ratepayers and reject SDG&E’s application.
