Why am I receiving this notice?
On September 30, 2021, PG&E filed with the CPUC its 2023 Gas Transmission & Storage Cost Allocation and Rate Design application, known as the GT&S CARD application.
This is the first time PG&E is filing GT&S CARD as a separate application addressing how gas transmission rates are designed. Going forward, PG&E is proposing this application be filed every four years.
This application includes the design and allocation of costs previously proposed in the General Rate Case Phase 1 related to gas transmission and gas storage facilities. There are no new costs being requested in this application.
How could this affect my monthly bill?
Bundled gas customers receive transmission, distribution and procurement services from PG&E. Based on a July 18, 2022 filing and assuming the 2023 GRC Phase 1 will be adopted as proposed, the average monthly bill for a typical residential customer averaging 31 therms per month would decrease from $71.48 to $71.35, or 0.2%.
Actual impacts will vary depending on usage and are subject to CPUC regulatory approval.
How does the rest of this process work?
This application has been assigned to a CPUC Administrative Law Judge who will consider proposals and evidence presented during the formal hearing process.
The Administrative Law Judge will issue a proposed decision that may adopt PG&E’s application, modify it or deny it. Any CPUC Commissioner may sponsor an alternate decision with a different outcome. The proposed decision, and any alternate decisions, will be discussed and voted upon by the CPUC Commissioners at a public CPUC Voting Meeting.
Parties to the proceeding will review PG&E’s application, including the Public Advocates Office. The Public Advocates Office is an independent consumer advocate within the CPUC that represents customers to obtain the lowest possible rate for service consistent with reliable and safe service levels.
