ADVICE 3948-E
(U 338-E)
PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
ENERGY DIVISION
SUBJECT:

Tariff Revisions to Update Southern California Edison
Company’s Energy Resource Recovery Account Trigger Point
and Assembly Bill 57 Threshold Amounts

In compliance with Decision (D.)04-01-050, Southern California Edison Company (SCE)
hereby submits the following changes to its tariffs. The revised tariff sheets are listed
on Attachment A and are attached hereto.
PURPOSE
This advice letter revises Preliminary Statement Part ZZ, Energy Resource Recovery
Account (ERRA), in compliance with D.04-01-050.
BACKGROUND
On January 22, 2004, the California Public Utilities Commission (Commission) issued
D.04-01-050 requiring SCE to submit an annual advice letter updating its ERRA-related
Trigger Point and Assembly Bill (AB) 57 Threshold amounts by April 1 of each year.1
SCE’s 2019 ERRA Trigger Point amount – 4 percent of the actual recorded generation
revenue2 for the prior calendar year – is $212.812 million. SCE’s 2019 ERRA AB 57
Threshold amount – 5 percent of the actual recorded generation revenue for the prior

1

2

In Advice Letter 3914-E, which is still pending approval, SCE modifies its ERRA Preliminary
Statement Part ZZ to be consistent with the Portfolio Allocation Balancing Account (PABA)
structure adopted in D.18-10-019. The purpose of the PABA, which will record certain
costs and revenues that were previously recorded to ERRA, is to determine and pro-ratably
recover from responsible bundled service and departing load customers the “above-market”
cost of all generation resources that are eligible for cost recovery through the Competition
Transition Charge (CTC) and Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA) rates. Once
the PABA is established, SCE will include the bundled service customers’ estimated prorata share of the PABA balance in the ERRA Trigger and AB 57 Threshold calculations.
Generation revenues exclude California Department of Water Resources (CDWR)
revenues.
