Antonovich opposes Edison proposal

leave a comment »

Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich today announced his opposition to a fee increase proposed by Southern California Edison, which serves La Canada and La Crescenta residents, to repair power lines damaged by wildfires.

“It is unconscionable for Edison to place an additional burden on its customers to fix lines damaged by fire — when the company refuses to reroute its own lines from high-fire areas,” Antonovich said in a statement.

In a letter sent to the state Public Utilities Commission, which will vote on the proposed rate increase, Antonovich criticized the utility for not adequately working with communities on new transmission projects and urged the commission to deny the utility’s application.
