Earthjustice and Sierra Club write to express support for Alternate Draft Resolution E-5007. As originally proposed, Resolution E-5007 would inexplicably award Southern California Gas Company shareholder incentives for activities related to the development of efficiency codes and standards despite actively working against the adoption of more stringent standards. The Alternative provides much needed accountability, finding instead that "[t]here is serious question whether SoCalGas merits recovery for its Codes and Standards advocacy." To ensure these questions are fully vetted and that the appropriate consequences result from SoCalGas' actions, the Alternate also properly requires the California Public Utilities Commission to issue an Order to Show Cause, "giving parties the opportunity to address and resolve issues regarding the 2016 and 2017 [C&S] awards."
