Californians for Renewable Energy, Inc. (CARE) Complaints v. California Public Utilities Commission, Southern California Edison Company, and Blythe Energy, LLC, Respondents; Notice of Complaints

March 27, 2007.

Take notice that on March 26, 2007, Californians for Renewable Energy, Inc. (CARE) submitted a complaint against the California Public Utilities Commission for its action on March 15, 2007, authorizing hearings concerning Southern California Edison Company's (SCE) application to enter into a power purchase agreement with Blythe Energy, LLC (Blythe), in violation of the Federal Power Act pursuant to section 205 of the FPA. CARE alleges that the prices, terms, and conditions of such contract are unjust and unreasonable. CARE further alleges SCE and Blythe failed to file their rates and the rates approved by the California Public Utilities Commission do not serve the ``public interest'' under the FPA and are in fact unduly preferential and discriminatory against their party customers, and impose an excessive burden on these customers.

CARE states that copies of this filing were served upon Respondents and other interested parties.
