MCE’s just released its 2-16-2017 Board packet. MCE effectively games “lower prices” by reviewing PG&E prices (plus exit fees) and then JUST undercuts PG&E, in this case by 6/100 of 1%, a far cry from “lower prices” claim that MCE committed to our community.
MCE CEO Dawn Weisz is set to take more than $330,000 per year out of MCE as a salary. Pacific Energy Advisors (John Dalessi, Kirby Dusel, and late arrival Brian Goldstein), which designs MCE's prices and set its rates, earns almost 2x Weisz's income. Dalessi is now in southern California’s Community Choice Aggregators.
MCE’s identified -0.1% (1/10 of 1%) percentage difference in its prices compared to PG&E is wrong. Actual percentages are:
E-1 (residential): -6 hundredths of 1%
A-1 (small general service): -6 hundredths of 1%
A-6 (small general service Time-of-Use): -6 hundredths of 1%
A-10 (medium general service, demand-metered): -6 hundredths of 1%
E-19 (medium general service, demand metered Time-of-Use): -6 hundredths of 1%
E-20 (customers who exceed 999 kilowatts): -6 hundredths of 1%
Ag (agriculture): -6 hundredths of 1%
SL (street lighting): -6 hundredths of 1%
