These hearings are outside of any particular CPUC proceeding, and they deal generally with an important topic.
On Wednesday of this week, October 13, at 1 pm, these two agencies will be holding a joint En Banc hearing on the issue of Transportation Electrification.
The State of California has been investing heavily into supporting this issue, especially trying hard to focus money where people have fewer resources and have worse air quality. Often, they are using money from the California Cap and Trade program to fund these efforts. This is really excellent work, in that we are putting a price on carbon, and we are helping people who need help, and we are helping them to take older, more heavily polluting cars off the road, and so, we are helping to move the needle on our state's emissions.
This Wednesday is your chance to hear more about what the State is doing to help us all, and they will open the floor for public comment.
This is a fantastic opportunity to voice your opinions on the state's work to help us all. I hope many of us are there to be part of our government.
Together, we can do what needs to be done.
