The dual crisis

The Dual Crisis

  • Although all municipal utilities and investor-owned utilities (IOUs) throughout the West faced the electricity crisis, on the California IOUs experienced the financial crisis.

  • Only these were under direct regulatory control of the California governor and the CPUC.

  • Two regulatory rules forced California IOUs into a financial crisis. IOUs were precluded from using long-term electricity purchase contracts to protect themselves from wholesale price spikes. Once wholesale prices sky-rocketed, Governor Davis and CPUC refused to allow retail price increases needed to keep investor-owned utilities financially viable and to encourage energy conservation.
