Substitute Sheets for Advice 4308-G/5943-E

Dear Energy Division Tariff Unit:
An original and 1 copy of substitute sheets are attached for Advice
4308-G/5943-E, “Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s Plan to Implement the
Arrearage Management Program, Pursuant to D.20-06-003, Ordering Paragraph
83,” submitted on September 9, 2020.
PG&E has identified an error in its proposed modifications to Gas Rule 9.
Specifically, the proposed revisions to the tariff inadvertently omitted that
customers in the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) program are eligible to
participate in the gas Arrearage Management Program (AMP), pursuant to D.2006-003, Ordering Paragraph 52.
PG&E is adding the following footnote on Sheet 4 of Gas Rule 9 to clarify that
dual commodity customers enrolled in FERA are eligible to participate in the gas
AMP:
Gas customers who are dual commodity PG&E customers participating in
PG&E’s Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) program for their electric
service are also eligible to participate in the gas AMP.
These corrections make additional updates to page 19 of the advice letter, the
gas table of contents, and the redlines of Sheet 4 of Gas Rule 9, but do not
impact any other information presented in the advice letter.
In accordance with GO 96-B, Section 7.5.1, the substitute sheets are being
served in the same manner as the original advice letter. For administrative
convenience, new pages of the affected sheets are attached. Please discard the
previously submitted pages.

A Customer currently on a payment plan may voluntarily switch to the AMP if they become eligible. 2. Once enrolled, PG&E shall forgive 1/12 of a participating Customer’s eligible arrearage after each on-time payment.

Customers may request at the time of AMP enrollment that the monthly payments be levelized for the 12 months of the program. 3. If a customer receives Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program assistance, that assistance will be applied to the participant’s monthly bills, not the AMP eligible arrearage.
