2017 Pacific Gas and Electric
General Rate Case
On September 1, 2015, PG&E filed an Application with the CPUC requesting to increase its revenue requirement from a current level of $7.916 billion to $8.373 billion:
- 2017: $457 million (5.8%)
- 2018: $489 million (5.84%)
- 2019: $390 million (4.40%)
PG&E indicates that the key reasons for the increase include:
- Increased costs of delivering energy safely and providing responsive customer service.
- Capital investments to replace aging infrastructure.
- Capacity-driven additions needed to serve more energy load based on customer demand.
- Recovery of costs for depreciation associated with capital investments.
- Costs of complying with governmental regulations and orders.
See Table breakdown by Gas and Electric.
Utility Bill Impacts
PG&E estimates that 2017 non-CARE residential customer bill impacts, compared to 2015, would be:
- Electric (500 kWh/mo avg usage) = $2.86 (3.20%) increase per month
- Electric (700 kWh/mo avg usage) = $4.00 (2.70%) increase per month
- Gas (34 therms/mo avg usage) = $1.20 (2.34%) increase per month
ORA is currently performing an in-depth review and analysis of PG&E's request.
