Following the spirit of 1996 legislation mandating the deregulation of private electric energy providers, publicly owned Anaheim Public Utilities is considering opening itself up to competition. The move would break a long tradition in Anaheim, where customers have never had a choice about their electric energy provider. A meeting explaining the proposal will be held for small businesses on Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Gordon Hoyt Conference Room, City Hall West, 210 Anaheim Blvd.

Following the spirit of 1996 legislation mandating the deregulation of private electric energy providers, publicly owned Anaheim Public Utilities is considering opening itself up to competition. The move would break a long tradition in Anaheim, where customers have never had a choice about their electricity provider. But, according to a presentation given last week for large businesses, the spirit of free choice will only go so far.

Wires and poles used to clog Anaheim's skyline. They ran alongside nearly every major street--the aesthetic price paid for modern-day technology. But 10 years ago, the City Council decided it was time to take back the skyline. Council members saw the clean, uncluttered look of South County cities, born in the 1960s and '70s with policies that placed all utility lines underground. The Anaheim council voted for a 40-year program that would bury all the lines.

State Sen. Joseph Dunn (D-Garden Grove) tried to make like a bridge over troubled water--or, more properly, troubled water bills--earlier this month, moderating a meeting between tenants and their landlord at Sage Park Apartments in Anaheim. Sage Park tenants are peeved that they are now charged for water, sewer and trash on top of their rents, saying the bills add as much as $100 to their monthly expenses.

Electric car owners will be able to get a quick jolt when public charging stations are built at malls, business, entertainment centers, city halls, libraries and beaches. The council this week voted 4-1 to accept $100,000 from the Orange County Transportation Authority to help build a network of 25 charging stations across the county. Councilman Bob Zemel opposed the proposal. Supporters said the stations will encourage more people to drive emission-free electric cars to reduce air pollution.

The City Council today will consider an agreement to reimburse Walt Disney World Co. up to $2.3 million for electrical work needed in the city's resort area. Anaheim's Public Utilities Department has to expand its electrical distribution system to accommodate the expansion of Disneyland, Anaheim Convention Center and other resort developments, city staff members said. Part of the system crosses onto Disney's property, where the company has already started construction on the theme park addition.
