TURN  —The Utility Reform Network— is a nonprofit California grassroots consumer advocacy organization with an emphasis on justice for the poor and fairness for all rate-payers, winning uphill battles with the state Public Utilities Commission and with electricity, natural gas and phone companies for forty years.

TURN has grown to become the largest and most successful utility consumer advocacy organization in the state, racking up billions of dollars in savings for California consumers.
Go to for current utility issue information, actions in process, TURN in the media, consumer tools (e.g., low income assistance, complaint filing, utilities usage advisory and tips), annual report, jobs at TURN, email update sign-up, 40th Anniversary event details, and useful material personally and technically, and locally as well as at state level. As a member since the beginning, I encourage all California kogs to take good advantage of what's offered, share with less fortunate friends and neighbors, and consider getting involved.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
