ADVICE LETTER 3633-E / 2919-G
(U 902-M)
PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
SUBJECT:

NOTIFICATION OF THE CREATION OF NEW AFFILIATES

PURPOSE
San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) hereby notifies the California Public Utilities
Commission (Commission) of the creation of new affiliates, as defined in the Commission’s Affiliate
Transaction Rules (Rules).
BACKGROUND
In accordance with Commission Decision (D.) 97-12-088, in OIR 97-04-011/OII 97-04-012, Appendix
A, Rule VI.B, as modified by D.98-08-035 and D.06-12-029, SDG&E is required to notify the
Commission of the creation of any affiliate addressed by these Rules. Accordingly, SDG&E is
hereby notifying the Commission of the formation of new affiliates as shown on the enclosed
Attachment A.
D.97-12-088, as subsequently modified by various decisions, adopted rules governing the
relationship between California’s natural gas local distribution companies and electric utilities and
certain of their affiliates. For the purposes of a combined gas and electric utility, the Rules apply to
all utility transactions with affiliates engaging in the provision of a product that uses gas or electricity
or the provision of services that relate to the use of gas or electricity. However, regardless of the
foregoing, where explicitly provided, the Rules also apply to a utility’s parent holding company and to
all of its affiliates, whether or not they engage in the provision of a product that uses gas or electricity
or the provision of services that relate to the use of gas or electricity.1
No unusual or unique circumstances exist that would require affiliate transaction rule implementation
measures for the new affiliates beyond those already identified by SDG&E. Therefore, SDG&E will
apply the provisions of its 2020 Compliance Plan Advice Letter 3561-E/2876-G2 to all transactions
with the new affiliates included herein. If the Commission modifies or requires the modification of
Advice Letter 3561-E/2876-G, SDG&E will apply all such changes, or the provisions of such
amended plans, to the newly formed affiliates included herein.
This filing will not create any deviations from SDG&E’s tariffs or cause withdrawal of service from any
present customers.
In accordance with D.06-12-029, only certain Rules apply to holding companies that are not engaged in the
provision of gas or electricity-related products and/or services.

Effective July 1, 2020 pending Energy Division disposition.
