Please note: The CPUC’s Courtroom is wheelchair accessible. If you wish to attend and need specialized accommodations, please contact the Public Advisor’s Office (PAO) at least five business days prior to the hearing date. Any changes to the dates, times and locations of the hearings will be posted to the CPUC’s Daily Calendar. ABOUT THE APPLICATION The 2020 ERRA Forecast application was filed on June 3, 2019. On July 29, 2019, PG&E filed supplemental testimony with the CPUC to update its proposals. Updated revenue requirement and rate impacts are included below. The application requests approval to change rates for the following: • Recovery of $3.18 billion in costs related to fuel needed to produce electricity as well as market-based costs of buying energy from third parties to serve bundled load • Setting certain charges for bundled and departing load customers for the recovery of above-market costs of PG&E’s portfolio procured for these customers before their departure, including the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA), Ongoing Competition Transition Charge (CTC) and Cost Allocation Mechanism (CAM) • Public policy mandates recovered through the Tree Mortality Non-bypassable Charge (TMNBC) • Return of $391.5 million to eligible customers for the sale of greenhouse gas emission allowances, including the California Climate Credit for residential customers and returns for eligible nonresidential customers Exact amounts are subject to change and to CPUC regulatory approval. PG&E will provide the CPUC with updated amounts later in the year to ensure the most current information is used to set customer rates. HOW WILL PG&E’S APPLICATION AFFECT ME? Many customers receive bundled electric service from PG&E, meaning they receive electric generation, transmission and distribution services. Based on rates in effect when the supplemental testimony was filed in July 2019, the electric bill for a typical residential bundled non-CARE customer using 500 kWh per month would decrease from $118.05 to $116.65, or a 1.2% decrease. Twice a year, in April and October, eligible residential customers will also receive a California Climate Credit in the amount of approximately $36.67, for a yearly total of approximately $73.34. Residential DA/CCA customers also receive the benefit of the California Climate Credit. In addition, eligible nonresidential DA and CCA customers receive the benefit of the greenhouse gas allowance returns. The impact of PG&E’s application on these customers is an average increase of 8.5%. Departing Load customers do not receive electric generation, transmission or distribution services from PG&E. However, they are required by law or the CPUC to pay certain non-bypassable charges. On average, these customers will see a decrease of 0.3%. Actual impacts will vary depending on usage.

CPUC PROCESS At these Evidentiary Hearings, the assigned judge will receive testimonies from PG&E, consumer advocacy groups and other parties to this proceeding. These hearings are open to the public, but only those who are parties to the proceeding may present evidence or testimony and be subject to cross-examination. The hearings and documents submitted during this proceeding will become part of the formal record the judge will rely upon in writing a proposed decision to present to the Commissioners for their consideration. After considering all proposals and evidence presented during the formal hearing process, the assigned judge will issue a proposed decision which may adopt, modify or deny PG&E’s proposal. Any of the five CPUC commissioners may also sponsor an alternate decision. The proposed decision and any alternate decisions will be discussed and voted upon by the commissioners at a scheduled public CPUC Voting Meeting.
