San Diego Democratic Senator Christine Kehoe\u2019s attempt to revive retail electricity choice, SB 855, is countered by a bill seeking to put an end to direct access. An urgency measure by Assemblymember Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara) introduced July 5 restricts direct access by requiring non-utility power providers to annually report to the California Public Utilities Commission and to submit a list of all their customers and addresses. As of Jan. 1, 2013, direct access would be limited to those customers on the electric service providers\u2019 list. Williams\u2019 bill, ABx1-37, also repeals existing law authorizing the CPUC to facilitate direct access. \u201cNeither bill is going anywhere this year,\u201d said Gary Ackerman, Western Power Trading Forum executive director.
