Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject:

Supplemental: Notice of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Rate
Increase Submittal (TO20)

Purpose
In compliance with California Public Utilities Commission (Commission or CPUC)
Resolution E-3930, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) hereby submits this
supplemental advice letter to provide the Commission with notice of the Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) recent order on PG&E’s nineteenth FERCjurisdictional electric transmission revenue requirement request (TO20). On November
30, 2018, FERC issued its Order accepting PG&E’s TO20 filing and suspending the rate
increase for five months, to become effective on May 1, 2019, subject to refund.
Background
On October 1, 2018, PG&E submitted its TO20 Formula Rate filing in FERC Docket No.
ER19-13-000. That filing requested an increase in TO Tariff transmission revenue
requirements and rates to recover the just and reasonable costs associated with
significant electric transmission infrastructure expansion and replacement that has
occurred in 2018 to date, and that is forecasted to occur during the balance of 2018 and
in 2019. PG&E proposed an effective date of December 1, 2018 and requested to
suspend the rates implementation date to January 1, 2019.
On October 1, 2018, FERC issued its order accepting PG&E’s TO20 filing, suspending
the requested rate increase for five months to become effective on May 1, 2019, subject
to refund. In its order of acceptance, FERC set the matter for a trial-type evidentiary
hearing but held the hearing in abeyance to provide time for settlement judge procedures.
