Advice No. 5710
(U 904 G)
Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject: Revisions to Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB) Agreement, Sample Form
No. 6800-A
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) hereby submits for approval by the
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC or Commission) revisions to Sample Form
No. 6800-A, EBB Agreement - Exhibit A - Logon ID Request, applicable throughout its
service territory as shown in Attachment A.
Purpose
SoCalGas requests approval to replace Form No. 6800-A with a revised version that
includes field name changes and new field additions to allow customers to subscribe to
new services.
Background
On September 3, 2019, SoCalGas submitted Advice No. (AL) 5511 providing a roadmap
for completion of its Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) Data Aggregation System, as
well as a roadmap for its implementation of an Automated Scheduled Quantity Trading
(ASQT) System. In D.19-08-002, the Commission found a 13-month implementation for
the ASQT System schedule to be reasonable. Accordingly, as described in AL 5511, the
ASQT System was to be implemented for gas day September 1, 2020.
SoCalGas’ roadmap was approved at the Commission’s March 12, 2020 business meeting
by Resolution G-3563. As noted in AL 5511, the permanent, automated system generally
functions similarly to the temporary, manual process, except that scheduled quantity trades
will be processed through the EBB rather than by e-mail or fax. The only modification to
SoCalGas’ roadmap for the ASQT System directed by Resolution G-3563 was for the





- Page 1 -

Advice No. 5710 -2- October 13, 2020 System to be available for trades on every gas day, rather than only on days in which an Operational Flow Order was declared. SoCalGas hosted a webinar training with customers regarding the new EBB platform on August 25, 2020. Consequently, revisions to Form No. 6800-A are required to allow customers to select the ASQT service due to the automation of Scheduled Quantity Trading as ordered in D.19-08-002. Further, these revisions would allow California Producers to select an EBB service selection due to the automation of the California Producer Trading process as specified in the California Producer Operational Balancing Agreement (CPOBA).1 Additional changes to Form No. 6800-A described below are for an EBB service – Monthly Billing Statement which is a new service and for miscellaneous requests. Proposed Revisions SoCalGas proposes to revise Form No. 6800-A by removing outdated language, adding clarifying information in the contact information section and EBB service selections section of the form, and adding clarifying language in the signatory section. In addition, new EBB services are added and include Scheduled Quantity Trading, California Production, Monthly Billing Statement, Other (for miscellaneous requests such as internal processing screens), and corresponding level of access privileges, which can be selected by customers. This submittal will not increase or decrease any rate or charge, conflict with any schedules or rules, nor cause the withdrawal of service.

The protest must state the grounds upon which it is based, including such items as financial and service impact, and should be submitted expeditiously.
