Docket No. A.15-05-005 Consolidated Application, for Commission Review of Safety Model Assessment Proceeding, by the Investor Owned Utilities Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison Company (SCE), Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) and San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E). 

A.15-05-005 resulted in a Commission rulemaking, which yielded Decision D.19-04-020 Phase Two Decision Adopting Risk Spending Accountability Report Requirements and Safety Performance Metrics.

Decision D.19-04-020 requires that PG&E, SoCal Edison, SoCal Gas, and SDG&E (collectively investor‑owned utilities or IOUs) submit to the Commission safety performance metrics reports every year beginning March 31, 2020, documenting the previous year’s data. Additionally, the Decision prescribed that the annual reports address an initial 26 safety performance metrics, which measure achieved safety improvements and cite examples of how the metrics promoted safety training, corrective action, and risk‑based decision-making. The safety performance metrics reports are expected to demonstrate progress toward risk mitigation goals established by Risk Assessment Mitigation Phase (RAMP) and General Rate Case (GRC) applications and to identify and support any metrics linked to financial incentives.

Risk Spending Accountability Reports

The Commission exercises oversight of utility risk spending in various ways.  In February 2016, the Commission updated its Safety Action Plan and established that the Energy Division would review the spending on safety-related activities of electric and gas utilities which had been approved in prior general rate cases (GRCs).  The Energy Division prepared reports for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Edison (SCE) but transitioned to issuing compliance letters in response to the revised rate case plan.  The revised rate case plan, adopted by Commission Decision (D.)14-12-025, sets new reporting requirements within a risk-based decision-making GRC framework.  These requirements were refined in D.19-04-020 closing the consolidated Safety Model Assessment proceeding (A.15-05-002 et al.) as well as in various GRC decisions.  Click Here for detailed information about these reports and schedules.
