NOTIFICATION OF EVIDENTIARY HEARINGS REGARDING PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY'S APPLICATION TO INCREASE ELECTRIC GENERATION RATES IN 2014
October 9, 2013 - October 10, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at the address below:
California Public Utilities Commission Courtroom
State Office Building
505 Van Ness Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94102
On May 31, 2013, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) filed an application with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to request a revenue increase, estimated at $993 million, effective January 1, 2014.
ABOUT THIS APPLICATION
Every year, PG&E is required to estimate how much it will cost to generate and purchase energy to meet its customers' electricity needs. The cost includes purchases of energy from hydroelectric, solar and other renewable sources. For 2014, PG&E estimates that the total cost will be $5.3 billion. If the CPUC approves the request, PG&E will begin to recover its energy costs through rates starting in 2014. The costs and savings associated with this filing are a pass-through to customers, meaning PG&E does not profit from its energy purchases. At the end of 2014, PG&E will review its electric generation rates and compare forecasted costs to generate and purchase energy with the actual costs and revenues collected from customers. PG&E will incorporate any differences in the following year rate revisions.
ESTIMATED IMPACT OF PROPOSED REQUEST ON ELECTRIC RATES
This application primarily affects electric generation revenues and rates. Most of PG&E's customers receive bundled service, meaning they receive electric generation as well as transmission and distribution service from PG&E.
If PG&E's current request is approved, a typical residential customer bill using 550 kWh per month would increase by $5.25 a month - or 5.7 percent, from $92.70 to $97.95. Actual bill impacts will vary depending on individual electricity usage. A detailed chart illustrating the impact of this application on the total change in electric revenues was provided to customers via a bill package insert in June. To view the proposed impact by customer class, please visit pge.com/billinserts.
HOW WILL PG&E'S APPLICATION AFFECT NON-BUNDLED CUSTOMERS?
Direct Access (DA) and Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) customers receive only transmission and distribution service from PG&E. Since they do not receive electric generation from PG&E, their generation rates will not be affected by PG&E's proposed change in generation rates. However, DA and CCA customers are required to pay certain procurement-related charges. The impact of PG&E's application on DA and CCA customers is $49 million, or an average increase of 7.9 percent. This increase is in addition to any charges that DA and CCA customers pay to the companies that provide their electricity.
Another category of non-bundled customers are "departing load" customers: they do not receive electric generation, transmission or distribution services from PG&E. However, like DA and CCA customers, they are required to pay certain charges. The impact of PG&E's application on departing load customers is $2.4 million, or an average increase of 7.2 percent.
Evidentiary hearings like the one that is the subject of this notice, are held in many formal proceedings. At such hearings, formal parties to the proceeding present their evidence through testimony and are subject to cross-examination before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Other parties may question witnesses in an attempt to clarify or challenge aspects of the testimony.
After considering all proposals and evidence presented during the hearing process, the ALJ will issue a draft decision. When the CPUC acts on this application, it may adopt all or part of PG&E's request, amend or modify it, or deny the application. The CPUC's final decision may be different from PG&E's proposed application.
The hearings are open to the public, but only those who are formal parties are permitted to present evidence and/or cross-examine witnesses. Members of the public may attend, but not participate in, these hearings.
The site of the hearings is wheelchair accessible. If you wish to attend and need specialized accommodations, please contact the Public Advisor's Office three business days prior to the hearing date. Any changes to the dates, times and locations of the hearings will be posted to the CPUC's Daily Calendar.
A copy of PG&E's application and exhibits are also available for review at the CPUC, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m.- noon. PG&E's application (without exhibits) is available on the CPUC's website at www.cpuc.ca.gov/puc.
