Pacific Gas and Electric Company Key Developments

Pacific Gas and Electric Receives Approval from the California Public Utilities Commission to Accelerate Energy Efficiency Retrofits in Existing Buildings

Environmental Defense Fund's Investor Confidence Project (ICP) announced Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has received approval from the California Public Utilities Commission to accelerate energy efficiency retrofits in existing buildings by providing interest-free loans to projects that follow ICP's rigorous protocols. ICP Protocols define industry best practices for energy efficiency project development and a credentialing system that includes third-party validation. Customers participating in PG&E's On-Bill Financing program, which provides interest-free loans for energy efficiency projects, can now make upgrades based on measured energy savings via SmartMeter technology. For this new pilot, customers will work with energy performance contractors who use ICP's Investor Ready Energy Efficiency (IREE) certification. This certification brings rigorous measurement and verification metrics to energy efficiency retrofit projects, standardizing the way such projects are developed and brought to market -- and making them more attractive to investors and building owners alike. PG&E's On-Bill Financing program offers qualifying businesses interest-free loans ranging from $5,000 to $100,000, or up to $250,000 for government agencies. Supporting the energy efficiency provisions of recent California state legislation Assembly Bill 802, this new On-Bill Financing pilot could increase investment in energy efficiency retrofits across California, and provide a model for similar efforts in other states.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company Reaches Settlement Agreement with Office of Ratepayer Advocates, The Utility Reform Network (TURN) and 12 Other Parties in its 2017-2019 General Rate Case

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has announced that it has reached a settlement agreement with the Office of Ratepayer Advocates (ORA), The Utility Reform Network (TURN) and 12 other parties in its 2017-2019 General Rate Case. The settlement agreement, which was submitted to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for approval, proposes an average increase of less than 1% in typical residential customer energy bills to support upgrades to technology and electric and gas infrastructure. PG&E and all active parties have been working towards a comprehensive settlement agreement since June. This settlement will allow for investments in safe and reliable energy service that supports California's clean energy goals while keeping typical residential bills well below the national average. This settlement was achieved on the heels of three weeks of Public Participation Hearings held throughout PG&E's service area. These hearings provided the Commission and PG&E the opportunity to receive feedback directly from customers about the original rate request.
