Advice 5552-E
(Pacific Gas and Electric Company ID U 39 E)

Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject:

Establish Electric Tariff for Discounted Rates for Food Banks

Purpose
The purpose of this advice letter is to seek California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC
or Commission) approval of the Food Bank Discount for electric service required by Public
Utilities Code Section 739.3 and adopted by Decision (D.) 18-08-013 in Phase II of
PG&E’s 2017 GRC Phase II proceeding. The affected tariff sheets are provided as
Attachment 1. In addition, as described in greater detail below, PG&E requests that the
Commission authorize PG&E’s proposed interim manual billing approach for providing
the discount to eligible customers through the end of 2020, so that these benefits can be
provided to eligible customers as soon as possible.
Background
By statute (Public Utilities Code Section 739.3), the legislature required the Commission
to establish a program of rate assistance to eligible food banks, at a fixed percentage to
be determined by the Commission. In compliance, Decision (D.) 18-08-013, the CPUC
adopted a food bank discount for gas and electric service as set forth in the provisions of
the adopted Settlement Agreement on Small Light and Power Rate Design (Ordering
Paragraph (OP) 10), and the adopted Settlement Agreement on Standby and Medium
and Large Light and Power Rate Design (OP 24). Specifically, the Small Light and Power
Settlement Agreement provides that eligible customers are those customers that have
executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the California Department of
Social Services that qualifies them to participate in The Emergency Food Assistance
Program (TEFAP) in California. Eligible customers will receive a 20 percent discount
based on the customer’s bundled bill amount and apply the discount to the distribution
component of rates.

Advice 5552-E -2- June 3, 2019 For direct access and community choice aggregation customers, the bill discount will be calculated as a 20 percent discount on customer bills as if the customer is bundled and then applied to reduce the distribution charges on a customer’s bill. The discount will be funded in the CARE surcharge component of the Public Purpose Program rate and collected on an equal cents per kWh basis. Proposed Interim Approach Due to the extensive number of billing system changes to be implemented over the next two years,1 PG&E will not be able to implement an automated monthly billing solution for the E-FBD until 2021. To avoid delay in providing this benefit to eligible customers,2 PG&E requests that it be allowed to calculate the Electric Food Bank Discount starting on the effective date of this Advice Letter (June 3 2019) and provide it to eligible customers in two lump-sum payments: (1)a payment in January 2020 via bill credit covering the previous 7 months (i.e., for the June 2019 through December 2019 billing cycles); and (2) a payment in January 2021 via bill credit covering 12 months (i.e., for the January 2020 through December 2020 billing cycles). PG&E proposes to continue to use this interim annual discount approach until the billing system has been fully automated to calculate the food bank discount on eligible customers’ bills every month. Tariff Revisions PG&E has provided Electric Rate Schedule E-FBD, Electric Food Bank Discount as Attachment 1 for approval. In addition, PG&E has attached the revisions to Electric Preliminary Statement, Part M, the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) Memorandum Account, that will allow for appropriate tracking and recovery of the Food Bank Discount. For your convenience, PG&E has also included redline revisions of Electric Preliminary Statement, Part M as Attachment 2 1 The unprecedented number of rate changes that must be implemented in 2019 and 2020 were described in PG&E’s 2018 Rate Design Window testimony [A.17-12-011, Chapter 3, page 3-56, lines 12-21]. 2 PG&E estimates that only approximately 30 customers are believed to be eligible for Electric Rate Schedule E-FBD, making manual billing a feasible interim alternative that will provide these customers with the same total discount during the time necessary for PG&E to complete the longterm solution through reprogramming the automated billing system, not expected to be complete before 2021.

Sheet No. 44236-E San Francisco, California ELECTRIC SCHEDULE E-FBD SERVICE FOR QUALIFIED FOOD BANKS Sheet 1 GENERAL Decision 18-08-013 adopted the Food Bank Discount which will be funded through the CARE surcharge component of the Public Purpose Program rate. ELIGIBILITY: This schedule is applicable to commercial and industrial service which meets the eligibility criteria set forth in Special Condition 2 for electric service to Food Banks. This service is made available pursuant to Public Utilities Code Section 739.3. Specifically, to be eligible for this rate, food bank facilities must have executed a Memorandum of Understanding with the California Department of Social Services that qualifies them to participate in The Emergency Food Assistance Program in California. RECERTIFICATION Food Bank Facilities will be required to certify annually their eligibility for the PG&E REQUIREMENTS: gas and electric Food Bank discounts by providing a copy of their Memorandum of Understanding executed with the California Department of Social Services that qualifies them to participate in The Emergency Food Assistance Program in California. TERRITORY: Schedule E-FBD applies everywhere PG&E provides electric service. RATES: Qualified Food Bank Facilities will pay all charges applicable on the otherwise applicable commercial rate schedule and will receive a discount as set forth below. Customers taking service on this rate schedule will receive a 20 percent discount on their total bundled charges on their otherwise applicable rate schedule. The discount to food bank facilities will be calculated for direct access and community choice aggregation customers based on the total charges as if they were subject to bundled service rates. Discounts will be applied as a reduction to otherwise applicable rate schedule distribution charges. BILLING: An interim manual billing solution will be leveraged to deliver an annual credit to qualified food bank customers in 2019 and 2020. Discount will be applied via standard automated billing beginning in 2021. INTERIM BILLING SOLUTION: All non-NEM customers will receive a lump sum discount on their January 2020 bill for 7 months of service from June 2019 to December 2019. Customers will receive a second lump sum discount on their January 2021 bills for their previous 12 months of service in 2020. Likewise, monthly billed NEM customers will receive 7 months of discounts on their January 2020 monthly true-up bill (for service from June 2019 – December 2019), and a discount on their January 2021 bill for the previous 12 billing periods. Annual billed NEM customers will have the Food Bank Discount applied on their scheduled annual true-ups starting in June 2020. A bill message will be applied to customer bills regarding the application of the Food Bank Discount.
