Advice No. 5492
(U 904 G)
Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject: Cross-Over Rate for July 2019
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) hereby submits revisions to its tariff
schedules, applicable throughout its service territory, as shown on Attachment A.
Purpose
This routine submittal revises the listed tariff rate schedules showing the Cross-Over
Rate for applicable residential and core commercial and industrial customers for July
2019 as authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission’s (Commission or
CPUC) approval of SoCalGas' Advice No. (AL) 3188-A on September 4, 2003, by
Resolution G-3351. AL 3188-A was submitted pursuant to Commission Decision
(D.) 02-08-065 dated August 22, 2002, authorizing SoCalGas to implement revised
uniform rules for noncore customers requesting core service, and core customers with
an annual consumption over 50,000 therms who elect to switch from a Core
Aggregation Transportation (CAT) marketer to utility procurement service.
Background
The Cross-Over Rate, as set forth in Schedule No. G-CP is comprised of the higher of
1) the posted monthly core procurement rate, less authorized franchise fees and
uncollectible expenses (see the “Adjusted Core Procurement Cost of Gas” per therm
calculation in Attachment B which establishes this value); or 2) the Adjusted California
Border Price Index (also included in Attachment B), which consists of the California
Border Price1 and the Backbone Transportation Service (BTS) Reservation Charge.2

The (un-adjusted) California Border Price is equal to the average of the first of the month
"Southern Cal Border Avg." index from Natural Gas Intelligence and the "Southern California
