Peace's chief of staff and ex-lobbyist for Southern California Edison, David Takashima, rephrased the State Senator's remarks for California Energy Markets. "Competition is really on the generation side, not at the consumer level."
Takashima added that the bill was not intended to facilitate consumer aggregation. "A lot of people look at AB 1890 as a masterpiece, but it's not. What the Legislature did, did not answer all the questions." Nevertheless, Takashima predicted that "cleanup legislation" will not be discussed for a year or two.
