Department Overview

In Regulatory Proceedings and Rates, we help the business achieve its business goals by working
with regulators and other stakeholders. Today's business needs innovative regulatory programs,
built on a solid foundation of regulatory knowledge.
Regulatory filings before the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) consist of required
filings and those initiated by the Company. Required filings include those ordered by previous
Commission decisions (e.g., general rate case proceedings, annual operating and energy cost
filings), and those required as part of Commission investigations. Among the filings initiated by the
Company are proposals for recovery of costs not covered by general rate cases, for new customer
programs, for modifications to existing regulations, and for changes to existing tariffs.
In any year, there are a wide variety of filings and often new cases are introduced during the year
due to actions initiated by the CPUC or FERC, or in response to changing business operations.
The Regulatory Affairs organization is responsible for planning, coordinating, and preparing
regulatory cases, and working with the CPUC and FERC to obtain the best possible outcome for
the Company and our customers.
