To Whom It May Concern,
I am a researcher at an Oakland, California-based firm called Message Lab. I am currently working on a research project tracking power outages in Los Angeles and Southern California, and was reaching out to obtain publicly available records submitted to CPUC regarding, for the last ten years (since FY 2009): the date of each outage in the corresponding area; the length (in hours and minutes) of each outage; the number(s) of people affected by each outage; and, if possible, the cause of each outage. For any questions for me, please feel free to reach out at my work email address or work phone number. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your correspondence.
