I\u2019m a Southern California Edison customer. I wanted to find out more about the utility\u2019s planned $3.6 billion rate hike I read about in my local newspaper so I went to the California Public Utilities Commission\u2019s website. I started with \u201cHot Topics.\u201d From there, the logical choice was \u201cEnergy Hot Topics.\u201d Surely a $3.6 billion rate hike is a hot topic. But that link took me a page listing several topics, like \u201cMaster Meter Mobilehome Park OIR,\u201d not my utility\u2019s rate hike. Back to the front page. \u201cEnergy\u201d at the top of the front page leads to \u201cRates & Tariffs.\u201d No dice. It takes me to a page that\u2019s got links on my current bill, but nothing about what\u2019s being proposed for my future bill. Back to page one. \u201cMore Events.\u201d A calendar showing no meetings related to an Edison rate hike. \u201cEnergy Regulation.\u201d No luck. Determined, I click \u201cDocket.\u201d I don\u2019t have a case number. The newspaper didn\u2019t report a docket. Last ditch, I click DRA. Now I\u2019m getting somewhere, but how many know what that acronym stands for? I reflect that if the CPUC really wants me to participate in ratemaking cases a good first start would be to put information about rate hike cases right on the front page of its web site. Are other states as cryptic about utility rate hikes? In Colorado, the first thing I saw was a notice about tiered rates taking effect and a link about how they would affect me if I lived there. In Massachusetts, right on the front page I found that if I lived in Fitchburg, the Department of Public Utilities just cut a proposed power rate hike by 54.2 percent. Nevada wasn\u2019t quite as easy, but within a minute I found out that Nevada Power was looking for a rate hike and the details were just one more click away.
