CPUC COMMISSIONER ISSUES PROPOSED DECISION IN PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY RATE CASE

(San Francisco) - Late yesterday, a member of the California Public Utilities Commission issued an Alternate Proposed Decision (APD) in Pacific Gas and Electric Company's 2003 rate case. The proposed decision, issued by Commissioner Geoffrey Brown, adopts the distribution and generation settlements as proposed in the comprehensive settlement agreement PG&E reached with numerous consumer groups in July and September 2003, to set the utility's revenue requirements for its electricity generation and electricity and natural gas distribution operations.

The APD differs from the Proposed Decision (PD), issued by an administrative law judge in April, in that it would adopt the provision for a minimum attrition adjustment amount in 2004, 2005 and 2006. The PD proposed that the settlement agreements be modified to delete that provision.
Comments on the APD are due May 20.

The Commission could consider the ALJ's PD and Commissioner Brown's APD at the May 27 meeting.
