Deal That Burned Ratepayers for $1,650.00 Each to be Revisited in Public Hearings

The following is a press release from an organization unaffiliated with Voice of OC. The views expressed here are not those of Voice of OC. Deal that burned ratepayers for $1,650.00 each to be revisited in public hearings
The Honorable Mike Aguirre, and law partner Maria Severson
of Aguirre & Severson LLP will be available for comment after
2:00 PM  this afternoon on the attached Order Instituting
Investigation into the failure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating
Station (SONGS). Aguirre & Severson is the only law firm that filed a timely petition
for rehearing at CPUC, and the only law firm that filed a petition
in Federal Court protesting the unlawful decision. The decision
forced ratepayers to bail out the failed nuke plant to the benefit of San Onofre’s investors. The reopening of the hearings represents a humiliating admission by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)  that the SONGS bailout wasn’t kosher, and that CPUC failed to do its job of protecting electricity ratepayers.
