    ADVICE 4015-E (U 338-E)

    PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA ENERGY DIVISION

    SUBJECT: Establishment of the Customer Service Re-Platform Memorandum Account Pursuant to Decision 19-05-020

    In compliance with Decision (D.)19-05-020, Southern California Edison Company (SCE) hereby submits for approval by the California Public Utilities Commission (Commission) the following changes to its tariffs. The revised tariffs are listed on Attachment A and are attached hereto.

    PURPOSE

    The purpose of this advice letter is to establish Preliminary Statement Part N._, the Customer Service Re-Platform Memorandum Account (CSRPMA), in compliance with D.19-05-020. SCE will record the capital-related revenue requirements associated with capital expenditures from project inception to project close and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) expenses and benefits from the beginning of the 2018 Test Year until these expenses begin to be recovered in rates.

    BACKGROUND

    On September 1, 2016, SCE submitted Application (A.)16-09-001 requesting, among other things, an increase in its base revenue requirements for the 2018 Test Year and 2019 and 2020 Post Test Years. In A.16-09-001, SCE included an O&M and capital expenditure forecast for the Customer Service Re-Platform project in the 2018 Test Year revenue requirement. On April 7, 2017, California Public Advocates (Cal Advocates) submitted testimony in response to SCE’s application and, among other things, proposed that SCE should track supplemental labor costs for the Customer Service Re-Platform in a memorandum account.

    On May 16, 2019, the Commission issued D.19-05-020, which ordered SCE to establish a Customer Service Re-Platform memorandum account. Ordering Paragraph (OP) 10 of D.19-05-020 directed SCE to submit a Tier 2 advice letter within 30 days of the effective date of the decision to establish a Customer Service Re-Platforming memorandum account to record any costs, capital expenditures, and benefits of Customer Service Re- Platforming during the 2018-2020 General Rate Case (“GRC”) period and each

  • ADVICE 4015-E (U 338-E) - 2 - June 14, 2019

    subsequent GRC period. These items may be reviewed for recovery in SCE’s next GRC.

    PROPOSED TARIFF CHANGES As discussed above, and in accordance with OP 10 of D.19-05-020, this advice letter establishes Preliminary Statement Part N.56, Customer Service Re-Platform Memorandum Account (CSRPMA), to record the capital-related revenue requirements associated with capital expenditures from project inception to project close and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) expenses and benefits from the beginning of the 2018 Test Year until these expenses begin to be recovered in rates. Consistent with D.19-05-020, SCE may seek review for recovery of the amounts recorded in the CSRPMA in its next GRC proceeding. No cost information is required for this advice letter. This advice letter will not increase any rate or charge, cause the withdrawal of service, or conflict with any other schedule or rule.

    TIER DESIGNATION

    Pursuant to D.19-05-020, OP 10, this advice letter is submitted with a Tier 2 designation.

    EFFECTIVE DATE SCE respectfully requests that this advice letter become effective July 14, 2019, which is 30 days from the date submitted.
