RE: Requests for Rate Increases Pacific Power
I am very alarmed at the numerous requests for successive rate increases being requested by Pacific Power this year. There has been an increase request for alternative energy in Grass Valley, a general increase of about 12%, one for solar, a catastrophic one for 1.8%, one for dam removal and now one for another 10.1%.
The people of Siskiyou
Unemployment is currently around 18.5%. The poverty rate is
about 16% for all populations and 25% for children under the age
of 18. Several farming communities had higher poverty rates: 26%
Siskiyou County is subject to temperature extremes of as much as 110 degrees F and -27 degrees F. Snowfall can be several feet high. Elevation of populated areas can be as high as 4,000 feet.
Please take this into consideration in your advocacy for us. This could be a potentially life-threatening increase.
