Angelia,
Looks like Wed 3 to 4 won't work for us. What about 4 to 5?
A couple more things to help facilitate the discussion:
1. We will also need to see the resulting residential rates (by tiers by CARE/non-CARE)
2. Additional expected revenue and rate changes post Oct 1 2014 rate change and next
summer.
Thank you.

Subject: Proposed October 1 Rate Change
Dear Ms Tan,
Thanks for our teleconversation this morning about PG&E's proposed Oct 1 Rate Change. The
workpaper supporting the revenue requirements is attached to this email. Beiow is an excerpt of
PG&E's proposed Advice Letter:
1. Transmission Owner (TQ15)
On October 1, 2013, PG&E incorporated into its wholesale and retail electric transmission rates its
T015 request, subject to refund. On July 15, 2014, PG&E filed an uncontested settlement resulting in a
reduction to the T015 revenue requirement. In addition, PG&E submitted a motion requesting
authorization to implement, on an interim basis, the wholesale and retail rates included in the
settlement. Although the settlement is still pending FERC approval, on July 23, 2014, FERC issued an
order granting PG&E's motion to implement interim rates as early as October 1, 2014. On August 22,
2014, in compliance with Resolution E-3930, PG&E filed Advice Letter 4479-E, notifying the CPUC of
the T015 settlement. The rates for T015 filed with this advice letter reflect an approximate $33.7
million decrease from revenues at currently effective TQ15 rates.
Note that the difference in the amounts actually billed using the as-filed rates and the amounts that
would have been collected under the settlement rates for the period between October 1, 2013, and
September 30, 2014, will be refunded to customers through PG&E's established End-Use Customer
Refund Balancing Account Adjustment mechanism upon approval by FERC.
2. General Rate Case (GRC)
On November 15, 2012, PG&E filed its 2014 GRC Application 12-11-009, proposing generation and
distribution base revenue requirements for test year 2014 and attrition years 2015 and 2016. On April
18, 2013, the CPUC issued D.13-04-023 granting PG&E's request to make its 2014 GRC revenue
requirement effective January 1, 2014, including interest. On August 14, 2014, the CPUC issued D.14-
SB GT&S 0768781
---------------------Page 4---------------------
08-032 adopting, among other items, electric base revenue requirements for the 2014-2016 GRC
period.
Ordering Paragraph (OP) 1 of D.14-08-032 states that "Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is
authorized to collect, through rates and authorized ratemaking accounting mechanisms, over the
remainder of this rate case cycle through December 31, 2016 the (i) test year revenue requirement set
forth in Appendix C of this decision, less (ii) the amount collected by PG&E base rates since January 1,
2014, and prior to the implementation of the revenue requirement authorized by this decision, plus (iii)
interest on the difference between (i) and (ii), with said interest based on the rate for prime, three-month
commercial paper reported in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H-15."
2014 Revenue Requirement
PG&E will reflect the 2014 GRC revenue increase in its distribution and generation rate components
and a decrease to its nuclear decommissioning rate component from October 1, 2014 through
December 2014. To allow recovery of about half of the increase to the 2014 adopted GRC revenues
over the three remaining months of 2014, for rate purposes, PG&E is doubling the adopted increase of
$196 million presented in Appendix C, Table 1 of D.14-08-032 . This would result in PG&E recovering
approximately $98 million of its adopted 2014 increase in 2014.
PG&E is available to discuss with ORA regarding the above proposal on Wednesday (9/24) from 3 p.m.
to 4 p.m. Please let us know the availability of your team and we will send you the meeting invite and a
call in number.
Thanks & Regards,
