PG&E: No changes to TO tariff needed to comply with Order 1000

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) on Sept. 27 submitted its FERC Order 1000 compliance filing, saying it needed to make no changse to the non-rate terms and conditions of its transmission owner (TO) tariff (Docket No. RM10-23-000).

The company in the filing said it had turned over operational control of its transmission facilities to the California ISO. PG&E’s TO tariff specifies rates and charges for transmission service over the Cal-ISO-controlled grid.

“However, to the extent that the Cal-ISO submits a compliance filing revising the non-rate terms and conditions of its FERC tariff, PG&E may wish to make conforming changes to its TO tariff,” PG&E said in its filing.

PG&E said it has been actively participating in the stakeholder process examining revisions to the Cal-ISO tariff necessary to comply with Order 1000. The company expects that Cal-ISO will submit revisions to its FERC tariff in compliance with Order No. 1000.

PG&E said it will make any necessary conforming changes to its TO tariff within a reasonable time after the Cal-ISO makes its filing.

PG&E is a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG).
