Consumers deserve energy choice

Re "Bill favors monopoly utilities over electricity customers" (Viewpoints, May 24): Thank you for bringing attention to AB 2145, the Utility power grab.

As the authors Gayle McLaughlin and Jeff Byron point out, this bill is a huge step backward for communities seeking safe, clean energy at affordable prices. AB 2145 puts the interests of antiquated, negligent monopoly utilities over the safety, health and economic well-being of communities, workers and the environment.

If enacted, AB 2145 would condemn us to the status quo of dirty, polluting electricity at ever-soaring prices. As bad a bill as it is, it won't go down without a fight. I urge anyone who believes that consumers deserve a choice to call their legislators in Sacramento.
