This application is referred to as A.12-08-01. In an ERRA forecast application, SCE estimates the costs of fuel and purchased power that is required to generate and procure electricity for the following year, in order to set rates and recover these costs. .in this application filing, SCE is requesting the Commission to authorize SCE's 2013 ERRA proceeding revenue requirement in the amount of $4.387 billion, which represents an increase of $507 million from the ERRA revenue requirement included in 2012. rate levels. The ERRA proceeding revenue requirement consists primarily of SCE's proposed 2013 fuel and purchased power costs. However, it also includes: (1) the currently estimated December 31, 2012 year-end recorded balancing account balances that SCE requests to recover from or return to customers, and (2) other miscellaneous expenses, such as spent nuclear fuel expense and Department of Energy decontamination and decommissioning fees. Compared to revenues at present rates as of June 1, 2012, this application requests a revenue increase of $484.68 million, or 4.42%, beginning in 2013. If the Commission should approve total rates as requested, an average residential electric customer using 600 kilowatt-hours per month would expect to see an increase of $5.67 per month, from $105.86 to $111.53. The following table shows current rates compared to an ~stimate of proposed revenue and rate changes by customer group.

Wrigley's purchase of Catalina Island offered him a nearly blank canvas to express'his deeply held ideal of excellence. Between 1919 and 1932, Avalon became home to California's largest diesel gen- erator, the world's largest cafete- ria, the most diverse aviary in the world,the tallest structure in Los Angeles County, largest ballroom dance floor and the first theater built for talking motion pictures. In little over a decade, Wrigley had transformed Catalina Island into one of the world's preeminent vacation destinations. Three years after purchasing the Island, Wrigley articulated his dream for Catalina Island when he said, "I want to make this little spot an attractive, healthy and en- joyable spot for the thousands of wage-earners who get little chance to rest and enjoy themselves as they would like. I want to get the thing so adjusted that the Island is self- supporting, but run without a nickel of profit. Right now it is far from a healthy investment financially, but I am tickled to spend more money to make it the vacation spot for the tired shop girl, the artisan, the clerk or the Boy Scout." A Democratic Dream commem- orates the 80th anniversary of Wil- liam Wrigley Jr.'s death. The exhi- bition will run from Aug. 31 through Nov. 26 and can only be "viewed at the Catalina Island Museum.
