PG&E Wants to Limit Info re: “Alleged Spying on Anti-Smart Meter Activists” Case

On May 21, 2012, Pacific Gas and Electric, a large CA utility, filed the above motion with the CPUC to limit the personal information regarding its employees (former and current) to be made available to the public in the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) investigation of alleged spying on several leading anti-smart meter activist groups in California. This motion reveals discovery information related to the proceeding, allegedly showing how one of their executives infiltrated and participated in anti-smart meter discussion groups under an assumed name.

Investigation 12-04-010
(Filed April 19, 2012)

Order Instituting Investigation on the Commission’s Own
Motion into the Operations and Practices of Pacific Gas
and Electric Company regarding Anti-Smart Meter
Consumer Groups

——————————-

On June 25, 2012, a hearing was held on the matter at the CPUC, click here to read the transcript, which includes allegations that the CPUC may also have been involved, as unreported meetings were held on numerous occasions during that time period between the utility and CPUC. Even though we understand that this was a public meeting, the CPUC administrative law judge in charge prevented it from being filmed. CEP believes this is a violation of applicable law.
