3 PREPARED DIRECT TESTIMONY OF YVONNE M. LE MIEUX ON BEHALF OF SAN DIEGO GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY I. PURPOSE AND OVERVIEW The purpose of my testimony is to: 1) describe the revenue return allocation methodology for greenhouse gas ( GHG ) allowance revenues resulting from the auction of GHG allowances directly allocated to San Diego Gas and Electric ( SDG&E ) by the California Air Resources Board ( ARB ) and ) describe the reconciliation methodology and calculation for the 01 GHG allowance revenue returns. My testimony also: 1) identifies the 01 forecasted GHG allowance revenue return allocation amounts (including the residential California Climate Credit 1 ), ) presents the reconciliation of 01 GHG allowance revenue return, ) requests authorization to revise the 01 GHG cost forecast amount for recovery in rates, and ) presents various rate impacts associated with the revised forecasted 01 GHG costs and authorized allowance revenue returns and the forecasted 01 GHG costs and allowance revenue return bill credits. 1 1 II. CAP-AND-TRADE PROGRAM EMISSION ALLOWANCES On January 1, 01, ARB s approved cap-and-trade program was implemented to achieve California s GHG emissions reduction targets. This market-based regulation sets a cap on GHG emissions and allows firms to accomplish the GHG reduction goals at a minimum cost. Some facilities subject to the cap are allocated GHG emission allowances which can be traded or used directly for compliance. These facilities have the option of either reducing their own GHG emissions or purchasing GHG emission allowances at an ARB allowance auction from others who 1 The California Climate Credit was previously referred to as the climate dividend. Pursuant to Decision ( D. ) , the Energy Division issued a letter on January, 01, notifying the electric utilities that California Climate Credit will be used as the name for the on-bill credit of GHG allowance revenue that small businesses and households will receive as directed by D and subsequent implementing decisions. The California Climate Credit was previously referred to as the climate dividend. Pursuant to Ordering Paragraph ( OP ) of D , the electric utilities were ordered to amortize 01 GHG costs and 01 GHG allowance revenues equally between 01 and 01. On June, 0, the ARB announced that the enforceable compliance obligation for the cap-and trade program was delayed until 01. 1
4 have made GHG emissions cuts beyond their obligations; however, the total GHG emissions must remain below the cap. Investor-owned utilities ( IOUs ), such as SDG&E, are allocated free GHG allowances on behalf of their customers and are required to consign their GHG allowances into the allowance auctions. On March, 0, in response to the new cap-and-trade requirements for electric utilities, the California Public Utilities Commission ( Commission ) opened the GHG Order Instituting Rulemaking ( R. ) ( GHG OIR ) to address the use of GHG allowance revenues that electric utilities may receive. In accordance with OP of D.1-1-0, the utilities were directed to allocate the revenues to all customers in the applicable customer groups set forth in the decision inclusive of Direct Access ( DA ) and Community Choice Aggregator ( CCA ) customers. 1 III. GHG ALLOWANCE REVENUE RETURN ALLOCATION METHODOLOGY Pursuant to OP 1 of D.1-1-0, the Commission directed the utilities to distribute GHG allowance revenues to customers using a hierarchy (see Table 1 below) after first setting aside appropriate amounts for customer outreach and education activities and administrative activities. Furthermore, under California Public Utilities Code ( P.U. Code ) Section.(c), the Commission may allocate up to 1% of the revenues received by an electrical corporation from its sales of allocated GHG allowances to clean energy and energy efficiency projects that are not funded by another source. Table 1 GHG Allowance Revenue Return Allocation Hierarchy Hierarchy Description 1 Emission-intensive and trade-exposed entities Offset cap-and-trade program rate impacts for small businesses Neutralize cap-and-trade program rate impacts for residential customers Climate Dividend for residential customers Attachment A of my testimony sets forth SDG&E s calculation of the proposed 01 GHG Allowance Revenue Return including: 1) authorized allowance revenues from 01 and forecasted allowance revenues from 01, ) authorized expenses for 01 and forecasted expenses for 01,
5 and ) forecast revenue returns for each customer class for 01. The following sections III.A and III.B describe the inputs that are used for calculating the 01 GHG allowance revenue return. A. 01 GHG Allowance Revenue Return Calculation For 01, SDG&E forecasts the GHG allowance revenue return as follows: Table 01 & 01 Combined Forecasted Net GHG Revenues Available for Return Line Description Amount 1 01 Forecasted GHG Allowance Revenues * (1,1,1) Less Forecasted Expenses: Outreach and Education Activities,0 Administration Activities,000 Reserves for Clean Energy Investment,000, Forecasted Net GHG Revenues Available for Return (,,0) *Includes interest, franchise fees & uncollectibles (FF&U) As discussed in the Prepared Direct Testimony of David T. Barker, SDG&E forecasts 01 GHG allowance revenues of approximately $. million. Prior to distributing the GHG allowance revenues to electric customers, the revenues are adjusted to set aside funds for outreach and administration activities as well as clean energy and energy efficiency investments. For 01, as discussed in the Prepared Direct Testimony of Rick Janke, SDG&E forecasts customer outreach 1 costs of approximately $1,000 and administrative costs of approximately $1,00. As discussed in the Prepared Direct Testimony of David T. Barker, SDG&E requests that the Commission authorize SDG&E to allocate $.0 million of the revenues to fund clean energy and energy efficiency investments. Therefore, if SDG&E s proposal is approved by the Commission, the forecasted net amount of GHG allowance revenue available for return to ratepayers specific to 01 will be $. million. SDG&E is also authorized to include 0% of the 01 GHG Amount not adjusted for FF&U. Amount not adjusted for FF&U. Amount not adjusted for FF&U. Amount not adjusted for FF&U.
6 allowance revenue available for return to ratepayers which is $1. million. The combined 01 and 01 GHG allowance revenue available for return to ratepayers in 01 is $. million. B. 01 Forecasted Net GHG Revenues Available for Return Allocation In accordance with the GHG allocation methodology adopted in D.1-1-0, SDG&E s GHG allowance revenue return will be allocated to ratepayers, including DA and CCA customers, using the following methodology: Table 01 & 01 Combined Forecasted GHG Revenues Available for Return Allocation Line Description Amount 1 01 Forecasted GHG Revenues Avail. for Return Allocation Emission-Intensive and Trade-Exposed Entities (1,,0) Small Businesses (,,) Residential Customers Volumetric Return (,1,1) Residential California Climate Credit (,0,0) 01 Forecasted Net GHG Revenues Available for Return (,,0) Emission-Intensive and Trade-Exposed Entities ( EITE ) Facilities identified as EITE currently are more formally referred to as Industrial Covered Entities that qualify for Industry Assistance in the ARB cap-and-trade Regulation; but the EITEs may be expanded for purposes of revenue return. Using the Energy Division s allocation methodology recommended in the Greenhouse Gas Allowance Revenue Allocation Methodologies for Emissions Intensive and Trade Exposed Entities and Small Businesses ( Staff Report ), as outlined in the Prepared Direct Testimony of David T. Barker, the forecasted set aside for revenue return to EITE customers will be approximately $0.1 million specific to 01. In addition, SDG&E is also including 0% of the forecasted set aside for the 01 EITE revenue return which is $0. million. The combined 01 and 01 EITE set aside for return in 01 is Amount adjusted for interest and FF&U. Amount not adjusted for FF&U.
7 $1. million. Bundled, DA and CCA customers identified as EITE will receive an annual fixedamount on-bill credit based on CPUC calculations.. Small Businesses Small businesses are defined as non-residential electric customers on a general service or agricultural tariff with monthly demand not exceeding 0 kilowatts for more than three months in a twelve-month period. Small businesses entitled to receive revenue return bill credits, as defined above, will include customers in SDG&E s Small Commercial, Medium and Large Commercial and Industrial, and Agricultural customer classes. Bundled, DA and CCA small business customers will receive the volumetric return in dollars per kilowatt hour ( kwh ). To meet the OP 1 of D.1-1-0, which directs the utilities to offset the rate impacts of the cap-and-trade program in the electricity rates of small businesses, the credit rate is volumetrically-calculated based on the amount of GHG-related costs that are allocated to the defined bundled small business customers, differentiated by customer class. The same credit rate, differentiated by customer class, will apply to DA and CCA customers to ensure they receive their share of GHG allowance revenues. Monthly, the revenue return bill credit, referred to as the California Climate Credit, will appear as a separate line-item on the customers bills. The forecasted return to small business 1 customers specific to 01 is $. million. In addition, SDG&E is authorized to include 0% of the forecasted 01 small business return to customers in 01. The forecasted combined 01 and 01 small business return in 01 is $. million.. Residential Customers Volumetric Return The revenue return to residential customers is designed to neutralize the rate impacts of cap-and-trade program costs embedded in rates. As a result of Assembly Bill ( AB ) 1X and Senate Bill ( SB ), 1 residential Tier 1 and customers were protected from rate increases while Tier and customers essentially subsidize the increased costs. The Commission 1 Amount adjusted for FF&U. In 001, in response to the energy crisis, Legislature passed AB 1X which froze Tier 1 and rates. SB limited increases to Tier 1 and rates for both California Alternative Rates for Energy ( CARE ) and non-care customer. SB limitations related to CARE tiered rates expired December 1, 01.
8 1 recognized that the current residential tiered rate structure disproportionately assigns costs to the upper tiers (Tier and ); therefore, utilities are authorized to use GHG allowance revenues to offset all GHG costs in the upper-tier residential rates. Residential customers will receive their first revenue return in electric rates through a volumetrically-calculated rate adjustment. This same volumetric rate adjustment to Tier and rates will apply to DA and CCA customers. As set forth in the Prepared Direct Testimony of Benjamin Montoya, SDG&E forecasts GHG capand-trade program costs of approximately $. million for 01, of which residential customers are allocated.% based on SDG&E s currently authorized commodity allocation factors. The resulting revenue return for bundled, DA and CCA residential customers is expected to be about $. million 1 for 01. In addition, SDG&E is authorized to include 0% of the authorized 01 residential volumetric return to customers in 01 which is $1. million. The forecasted combined 01 and 01 residential volumetric return in 01 is $.1 million. 1 1 IV. RECONCILIATION OF 01 GHG ALLOWANCE REVENUE RETURN The 01 allowance revenue returns to eligible small business customers and residential customers that receive volumetric returns of allowance revenue will be adjusted for deviations of the 01 GHG costs used to set the revenue return and actual 01 GHG costs. The adjusted 01 allowance revenue is further described below in Section V. The authorized forecasted 01 GHG costs were $. million while actual GHG costs, as discussed in the Prepared Direct Testimony of Ana Garza-Beutz, were $. million which results in a variance of $0. million. The authorized forecasted 01 GHG allowance revenues were $. million while actual 01 GHG allowance revenues, as discussed in the Prepared Direct Testimony of Ana Garza-Beutz, were $. million which results in a variance of $0. million. SDG&E was authorized to set aside 01 allowance revenues to fund customer outreach and education activities as well as administrative activities. For the allowance revenue return reconciliation, these expenses of approximately $1. million remained unchanged. 1 Amount adjusted for FF&U.
9 SDG&E forecasted $. million 1 for the 01 GHG revenues available for return in its 01 GHG forecast application. SDG&E calculated $. million 1 for its actual 01 GHG revenues available for return by taking the actual 01 GHG allowance revenues of $. million (as described above) adding FF&U of $1.0 million and interest of $, then subtracting the actual 01 GHG expenses of $1. million (as described above). The variance between the forecasted and actual 01 GHG revenues available for return is $1.1 million. The actual 01 GHG revenues available for return are then allocated using the methodology adopted by the Commission in D As discussed in the Prepared Direct Testimony of David T. Barker, the Commission has not issued a final decision resolving outstanding EITE customer allocation methodology issues as of April 1, 01. Therefore, for the purposes of this allowance revenue return reconciliation, the 01 forecasted EITE allowance revenue return of $0. million will remain unchanged. SDG&E forecasted $. million for the volumetric California Climate Credit return to eligible small businesses. SDG&E calculated the rate impact of the actual 01 GHG costs in eligible small business electricity rates based on the amount of GHG-related costs that are allocated to the defined bundled small business customers, differentiated by customer class. The actual 01 allowance revenue return for small businesses is $.1 million. The variance between the forecasted and actual 01 allowance revenue return to small businesses is $.1 million. SDG&E forecasted $. million for the 01 volumetric return to residential customers. SDG&E calculated the rate impact of the actual 01 GHG costs allocated to bundled residential customers to determine the actual 01 volumetric return to residential customers. Currently, SDG&E is authorized to allocate.% of commodity costs to residential customers resulting in an actual 01 volumetric return to residential customers of $. million. The variance between the forecasted and actual 01 volumetric return to residential customers is $1.1 million. 1 Amount adjusted for FF&U and interest. 1 Amount adjusted for FF&U and interest.

V. RESIDENTIAL CALIFORNIA CLIMATE CREDIT For 01, the residential California Climate Credit is forecasted to be approximately $.1 million. The California Climate Credit is calculated by taking the remaining 01 GHG allowance revenues of $. million (from Table, line ) less the $. million adjustment for the 01 GHG allowance revenue return reconciliation (from Table, line 0). The credit will be allocated to all residential customers on an equal cents-per-residential-account basis which will be credited to customers semi-annually as an on-bill credit. 1 1 VI. REVISED 01 GHG COST FORECAST D authorized SDG&E to amortize 0% of its forecasted 01 GHG costs in rates. Since the 0% of 01 forecasted GHG costs have not been implemented into rates, SDG&E is requesting the Commission to authorize the revised forecast of 01 GHG costs based
11 on the estimated actual GHG costs described in the Prepare Direct Testimony of SDG&E witness Ana Garza-Beutz of $. million or $0.0 million including FF&U. SDG&E proposes that the Commission adopt a revised 01 GHG cost forecast of $0.0 million to be applied to the 01 GHG cost recovery. VII.

The small businesses and EITE customers, as defined in D.1-1-0, are represented in more than one of SDG&E s customer classes. Small businesses entitled to receive GHG allowance revenue bill credits will include customers in SDG&E s Small Commercial, Medium & Large Commercial & Industrial, and Agricultural customer classes. EITE customers are anticipated to be included in SDG&E s Medium & Large Commercial & Industrial customer class. Since bill credits for small businesses are included in more than one customer class, rate impacts specific to each group are not computed.
