FERC to release staff report on California electricity market Nov. 1

The commission ordered the investigation Aug. 23, after customers of San Diego Gas & Electric Co. (SDG&E) began to feel the effect of record electricity prices this summer. SDG&E blamed independent power producers for taking advantage of the deregulated market. Generators say prices rose because supply is falling behind demand in California.

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 20, 2000 (PRNewswire via COMTEX) — As a follow-up to its appeal in early August to encourage federal regulators to investigate California’s deregulated electricity marketplace, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) today called on those same regulators to implement immediate, substantial reforms to make the market workably competitive.
