Advice 5758-E
(Pacific Gas and Electric Company ID U 39 E)

Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject:

March 1, 2020 Electric Schedule D-CARE Line-Item Discount
Percentage and Retirement of Residential CARE Rate Schedules per
Decision 18-12-004

Purpose
This Tier 1 advice letter is submitted to implement the March 1, 2020 line-item discount
percentage for energy charges in Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) new
Electric Schedule D-CARE, effective March 1, 2020, in compliance with Decision (D.)
18-12-004 and Advice 5638-E.
Background
On December 21, 2018, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC or
Commission) issued D.18-12-004 in Phase IIA of the 2018 Rate Design Window
Applications concurrently filed by PG&E, Southern California Edison (SCE) and San
Diego Gas and Electric Company (SDG&E).1 D.18-12-004 approved PG&E’s proposal
to eliminate its current residential electric rate schedules for California Alternate Rates
for Energy (CARE) customers and replace them with a fixed percentage line-item
discount.2
Subsequently, on September 18, 2019, PG&E submitted Advice 5638-E to implement
this decision. In Advice 5638-E, PG&E proposed to eliminate all its CARE rate
schedules, effective March 1, 2020, to streamline the number of tariffs as contemplated
in D.18-12-004. In place of these rate schedules, PG&E proposed to implement the
CARE discount as a line-item discount via a single tariff, Electric Schedule D-CARE,
which will act as a rider on whichever underlying non-CARE residential rate schedule

Applications (A.) 17-12-011, 17-12-012, and 17-12-013, which the CPUC consolidated into a
single proceeding.

Advice 5758-E -2- February 12, 2020 each customer account has chosen.3 Advice 5638-E was approved by Energy Division on January 21, 2020. Electric Schedule D-CARE In Advice 5638-E, PG&E submitted Electric Schedule D-CARE pro forma tariff sheets, which were approved by Energy Division. The 35.3 percent line-item discount figure for energy charges in the pro forma tariffs, however, was illustrative, based on PG&E’s current overall CARE discount percentage of 35.5 percent.4 However, on March 1, 2020, PG&E’s overall CARE discount percentage will be decreasing to 35.0 percent. So to achieve an overall CARE discount of 35.0 percent while still discounting the delivery minimum bill amount by 50 percent, the Schedule D-CARE line-item discount for energy charges must be set at slightly less than 35.0 percent. As PG&E explained in Advice 5638-E, the precise percentage for the Electric Schedule D-CARE line-item discount for energy charges could not be calculated at the time Advice 5638-E was submitted, because it depended on billing determinant forecasts and revenue requirement amounts that would not be known until closer to the March 1, 2020 effective date. PG&E now has that information. Based on the adopted sales forecast and revenue requirement for March 1, 2020, PG&E has calculated that a Schedule Electric D-CARE line-item discount on energy charges of 34.8 percent will, in combination with the 50 percent discount on the delivery minimum bill amount, yield the Commission-approved overall average CARE discount of 35.0 percent. Attachment 1 contains the updated Electric Schedule D-CARE language including the 34.8 percent line-item discount figure.5 Residential CARE Rate Schedules to Be Retired Per approved Advice 5638-E, effective March 1, 2020 PG&E will eliminate all its residential rate schedules for CARE customers. The specific residential CARE rate schedules to be retired are shown in the following table. 3 This is similar to how PG&E currently uses Electric Schedule E-FERA as a rider to provide rate discounts to qualifying Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) customers. 4 As explained in Advice 5638-E, because the delivery minimum bill amount for CARE customers is discounted at 50 percent, the line-item discount for energy charges would have to be set at slightly below 35.5 percent, in order for the resulting overall average CARE discount to be 35.5 percent (the level approved by the Commission for the period from March 1, 2019 through February 29, 2020). 5 Although the overall CARE discount percentage has reached its final glidepath level of 35.0 percent directed by D.15-07-001, the 34.8 percent Schedule D-CARE discount figure for energy charges may still change in the future, since it depends on billing determinant forecasts and Commission-approved revenue requirement amounts.

This account also records the CARE Program administrative costs, pursuant to Public Utilities Code Section 739.1 (b). The program was revised in Decision 94-12-049 and the name changed to CARE. This CARE balancing account is also used to record the revenue shortfall from Schedule E-FBD, Service for Qualified Food Banks, pursuant to Decision 18-08-013. Descriptions of the terms and definitions used in this section are found in Rule 1. 2. APPLICABILITY: The CARE shortfall applies to all non-CARE rate schedules and contracts subject to the jurisdiction of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), except for those schedules and contracts specifically excluded by the CPUC. 3. REVISION DATE: Disposition of the balance in this account shall be determined through the Annual Electric True-Up (AET) advice letter process. 4.

A debit entry equal to the revenue shortfall from Schedule E-FBD and the CARE revenue shortfall resulting from deliveries made on Schedules D-CARE and ECARE during the current month less the allowance for Revenue Fees and Uncollectible (RF&U) accounts expense. The revenue shortfall can be computed by subtracting CARE customers’ total monthly revenues from the total monthly revenues that would have been recovered from CARE customers had they been paying standard residential rates, less the sum of revenues associated with CARE exemptions from the DWR bond charge and the CARE surcharge portion of the public purpose program charge. b. A credit entry equal to the CAREA revenue less the allowance for RF&U expense. e. A debit or credit entry, as appropriate, equal to the interest on the average balance in the account at the beginning of the month and the balance in the account after entries 6.a. through 6.c. above, at a rate equal to one-twelfth the interest rate on three-month Commercial Paper for the previous month, as reported in the Federal Reserve Statistical Release, H.15 or its successor. f.
