Sylvia Siegel brought a customer’s perspective to the regulation of California utilities and spent 16 years fighting against rates and rules that she maintained were unfair to consumers. In 1973 she started what is now known as The Utility Reform Network (“TURN”) to represent consumers before the California Public Utility Commission, whom she recognized were more concerned with the welfare of big businesses, than with the interests of the customers. Ms. Siegel believed utility companies should be held accountable for fair rates and courteous, reliable service. Her legacy lives on through the works of TURN and community members like Dan Mogin who fight to expose injustices. We couldn’t be more proud of the work spearheaded by our very own Dan Mogin, and look forward to expanding Ms. Siegel’s legacy with new protections for vulnerable communities! Please join us in congratulating Dan on his success and receipt of the Sylvia Siegel Award!
