The application requests an increase in rates of $7.4 million for the following electric vehicle pilot programs: • Schools: Installation of electric vehicle charging stations in specific schools in Alameda, Fresno, and San Joaquin counties. Along with charging stations and related utility infrastructure, PG&E will host educational events and provide information to increase awareness and knowledge of clean transportation. • State Parks: Installation of electric vehicle charging stations and related utility infrastructure at select California state parks for use by both state park fleet vehicles and park visitors. BACKGROUND PG&E’s application will support California’s goal of increasing the number of electric vehicle charging stations and will help promote the adoption of electric vehicles across the state. Schools and parks are both highly visible locations where people come to learn and observe. Installing electric vehicle charging stations at these locations not only provides easy access to students, employees and the public, but also creates a platform to educate the public on how the use of electric vehicles can benefit California. HOW WILL PG&E’S APPLICATION AFFECT ME? Many customers receive bundled electric service from PG&E, meaning they receive electric generation, transmission and distribution services. Based on rates currently in effect, the bill for a typical residential bundled non-CARE customer using 500 kWh per month would increase $111.59 to $111.61, or 0.02 percent. SUMMARY On July 30, 2018, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) filed its Electric Transportation Pilot Project application with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). This application requests $4.13 million to expand the electric transportation initiatives offered by PG&E and help California meet the goals outlined in Senate Bill 350: Clean Energy & Pollution Reduction Act (SB 350). The pilot is designed to provide electric vehicle charging stations for moderate to low income residential customers and provide education in these communities to support more customers getting electric vehicles. BACKGROUND The goals of SB 350 are to reduce dependence on petroleum, meet air quality standards, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In 2017, PG&E and the other California utility companies submitted their first applications under SB 350 to promote widespread electric transportation. In early 2018, the CPUC approved the applications and authorized the utilities to submit applications requesting to increase rates for the approved projects. HOW WILL PG&E’S APPLICATION AFFECT ME?
