The California Public Utilities Commission invites individuals interested in applying to be a member of the Low-Income Oversight Board (LIOB, an advisory board to the California Public Utilities Commission (Commission) on electric, gas, and water policies that are designed to benefit low-income utility customers. The terms of three board positions conclude in June and October 2018. These positions are held by members selected by the Commission who have expertise in the low-income community, referred to as “public members,” and last for a period of two years. Candidates applying to be a member of the LIOB, including existing members, should submit a biography or résumé (no longer than one page), a statement of interest, and a list of three references. Applications should be submitted no later than May 18, 2018 to Sean Simon at (415) 703-2440 or
Interested candidates should review Public Utilities Code Section 382.1, which established the LIOB, and the Charter for the LIOB set out in Commission Resolution E-4095, [1] to determine if they meet the qualifications and if any conflicts of interest may prevent full participation on the board. Additional information about the LIOB is available here:

Pursuant to Public Utilities Code Section 382.1, the responsibilities of the LIOB are to:

• Monitor and evaluate implementation of all programs provided to low-income electricity, gas, and water customers.
• Assist in the development and analysis of any assessments of low-income customer need.
• Encourage collaboration between state and utility programs for low-income electricity and gas customers to maximize the leverage of state and federal energy efficiency funds to both lower the bills and increase the comfort of low-income customers.
• Provide reports to the Legislature, as requested, summarizing the assessment of needs, audits, and analysis of program implementation.
• Assist in streamlining the application and enrollment process of programs for low-income electricity and natural gas customers with general low-income programs, including, but not limited to, the Universal Lifeline Telephone Service program and, including compliance with PU Code § 739.1.
• Encourage the usage of the network of community service providers in accordance with Public Utilities Code § 382.1.

The LIOB holds four to five meetings annually with additional meetings and/or conference calls as necessary. The LIOB alternates meeting locations between northern, central, and southern California. Members of the LIOB are eligible for compensation in accordance with the state’s travel guidelines. [2]
