Prior-Year rounded to the nearest dollar.

*These utilities issued the 2018 credit with the 2019 credit in April 2019.

The 2018 PG&E and SoCalGas credits also include any 2015-2017 allowance proceeds that exceeded compliance costs over the same period.  Since Southwest Gas and SDG&E did not have net proceeds exceed net compliance costs for this period, these utilities had no net proceeds to roll forward into 2018.  PG&E's 2018 credit reflected proceeds accrued over the 2015-2018 period.  As SoCalGas postponed the return of the 2018 credit until 2019, SoCalGas's 2019 credit was composed of proceeds accrued over the 2015-2019 period
