Advice 5975-E
(Pacific Gas and Electric Company ID U 39 E)

Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject:

PG&E’s Modifications to Rule 18 per D.20-09-025

Purpose
Pursuant to Decision (D.) 20-09-025, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is
providing modifications to its Electric Rule 18.
Background
On September 24, 2020, the Commission approved D.20-09-025, Decision Clarifying
Status of Electric Vehicle Charging Service Providers as Public Utilities in Rulemaking
(R.) 18-12-006. Per Ordering Paragraphs (OP) 3 and 4, PG&E is submitting a Tier 1
advice letter making changes to its version of Electric Rule 18 necessary to conform to
the holdings of the Decision.
Proposed Tariff Revisions
This advice letter proposes to make the following revisions (in red) to the definition of
Electric Vehicle in PG&E’s Electric Rule 18 Part (C)(6):
6. ELECTRIC VEHICLES
As provided by Public Utilities Code Section 216(i), a customer who owns, controls,
operates or manages a facility that supplies electricity to the public only for use to
charge light duty plug-in electric vehicles is not a public utility and therefore may resell
electricity without regard to this Rule. As provided by California Public Utilities
Commission Decision No. 20-09-025, a customer who owns, controls, operates or
manages a facility that supplies electricity to the public only for use to charge medium
duty, heavy duty, or off -road plug-in electric vehicles or off-road electrical equipment is
not a public utility and therefore may resell electricity without regard to this Rule. Such
resale of electricity for electric vehicle charging does not affect the Commission’s
authority to regulate electric vehicle charging service providers under Decision No. 1007-044 and Public Utilities Code Sections 454, 740.2, 740.3, 740.12 or any other
applicable statute.
