ADVICE 3763-E (U 338-E) -2- March 9, 2018 DISCUSSION In its testimony in support of its 2018-2022 DR programs and budgets, SCE proposed to (1) offer Schedule AP-I only to Time-of-Use customers, (2) allow more flexibility for contract execution, and (3) introduce new rate options with a Firm Service Level (FSL) for AP-I customers.1 Although the timeline for implementation of the new FSL options was not described in the original testimony, in order to minimize customer impacts, SCE plans to implement this system change after the completion of SCE’s billing system replatform project in 2020. Therefore, SCE is proposing to modify its Schedule AP-I to implement the proposed AP-I program changes approved by D.17-12-0032 with the exception of the FSL rate options in this advice letter. The implementation of the FSL rate options will be addressed in 2020. PROPOSED TARIFF CHANGES SCE proposes to make the following modifications to its Schedule AP-I at this time: • Add language to specify only customers served under a Time-of-Use Agricultural and Pumping rate schedule are eligible for the program • Remove Non-TOU Credit (PA-1 and PA-2) from the Rates section of the tariff • Add language specifying that customers with service account or name changes, but no tax ID changes, will not need to sign new contracts to remain on the program No cost information is required for this advice filing. This advice filing will not increase any rate or charge, cause the withdrawal of service, or conflict with any other schedule or rule. TIER DESIGNATION Pursuant to General Order (GO) 96-B, Energy Industry Rule 5.1, and OP 60 of D.17-12-003, this advice letter is submitted with a Tier 1 designation. 1 2 See A.17-01-018, Exhibit SCE-02, pp. 3-6, filed January 17, 2017. D.17-12-003 also approved the increase in AP-I incentives due to revenue requirements. This tariff revision was filed on February 5, 2018, in SCE’s Consolidated Revenue Requirement and Rate Change Advice 3695-E-C, and approved on February 14, 2018 with an effective date of January 1, 2018.

However, this Schedule is not applicable to customers receiving the Wind Machine Credit provided under Schedule TOU-PA-2 or to customers served under experimental rate schedules. Service under this Schedule is subject to the availability of a load control device and may not be available in certain areas of SCE's service territory where communication signaling equipment has not been installed or signal strength is inadequate to activate or deactivate interruption. This Schedule is not applicable to customers served under Schedules TOU-BIP, or CBP. (C) Pursuant to Decision 10-06-034, which placed a Megawatt (MW) cap on emergency demand response programs, this Schedule may at any time be subject to a cap for new participants. TERRITORY Within the entire territory served. RATES All charges and provisions of the customer’s Otherwise Applicable Tariff (OAT) shall apply and the bill determined under the customer’s OAT will be credited as indicated below.

PUC Sheet No. Schedule AP - I AGRICULTURAL AND PUMPING - INTERRUPTIBLE 63445-E 61423-E Sheet 2 (Continued) RATES (Continued) (D) TOU Based Rates: In accordance with the terms and conditions of this Schedule and Form 14-315, Interruptible Service Agreement, a customer is eligible for interruptible bill credits on their monthly bill. The bill credits will be based on the customer’s monthly average kW demand recorded during each TOU period (on-peak and mid-peak during the summer season, and mid-peak during the winter season). The customer's monthly average kW demand, as described above, will be multiplied by the applicable bill credit amounts differentiated by season, and by TOU period, as listed in Special Condition 1. The bill credit(s) for each applicable TOU period is then summed to arrive at the total credit for the month. Example – Monthly API Credit Calculation for Customers during Summer and Winter Season: Summer On-Peak: Step 1: Total Monthly Summer On-Peak kWh / Total Monthly Summer On-Peak Hours = Monthly Average Summer On Peak Demand (MASO) Step 2: MASO x applicable Summer On Peak Credit (SOPC) = monthly bill credit kW for Summer On Peak kW Summer Mid-Peak Step 3: Total Monthly Summer Mid-Peak kWh / Total Monthly Summer Mid-Peak Hours = Monthly Average Summer Mid-Peak Demand (MASM) Step 4: MASM kW x Summer Mid Peak Credit amount (SMPC) = Monthly bill credit for Summer Mid-Peak kW Monthly Summer Bill Credit Step 5: Sum of Steps 2 and 4 = Monthly Summer Season Bill Credit. Winter Mid-Peak Step 6: Total Winter Mid-Peak kWh / Total Monthly Winter Mid-Peak Hours = Monthly Average Winter Mid-Peak Demand (MAWM) Step 7: MAWM x Winter Mid Peak Credit amount = Monthly bill credit for Winter Mid-Peak kW (Continued) (To be inserted by utility) Advice 3763-E Decision 17-12-003 2D7 Issued by Caroline Choi Senior Vice President (To be inserted by Cal.
