THRU Friday, November 16, 2012 - TIME: 9:00 A.M. LOCATION: Commission Courtroom, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102 The California Public UtiIRies Commission (CPUC) will hold Evi~lentiary Hearings regarding the Phase 2 issues in the consolidated utility Smart Meter Opt-Out proceeding (A.11.-03-014, et al)" Any changes to the dates, times and locations of the Evidentiary Hearings will be posted to the CPUC's Daily Calendar. The location for this hearing is wheelchair accessible. Anyone needing interpreters for language or for the hard Of hearing, please contact the Public Advisor's Office at the following numbers at least five (5) working days in advance of the headng date: Telephone: (415) 703-2074 or toll free: 1-866-849-8390 TrY: (415) 703-5282 or toll free TTY: 1-866-836-7825 BACKGROUND On February 1, 2012, the Commission issued Decision (D.) 12-02-014, which modified PG&E's SmartMeter Prngram to include an option for those residential customers who did not wish to have a wireless smart meter (as used in this proceeding, a wireless smart meter is a digital electric or gas meter that transmits customer usage data through radio bansmisslon). Similar Decisions were issued for SDG&E in D.12-04-019 and for SCE in D.12-04-018 (D.12-02-014, D.12-04-018 and D.12~04-019 are collectively referred to as the "Opt-Out Decisions'). The Opt-Out Decisions adopted interim fees for those customers electing to participate in the opt-out option and directed that a separate phase be initiated to consider cost and cost allocation issues associated with opt-out options. The Decisions also directed that the second phase consider whether the opt-out option should be extended to communities, such as local gevemments and residents of apartment buildings or condominium complexes. On June 8, 2012, CPUC Assigned Commissioner, Michael Peevey, issued a Ruling adding this required separate phase - Phase 2 - to the smart meter opt-out proceedings. SCE's PROPOSED RATE CHAOE SCE projects that its Opt-Out Program will require approximately $21 "million in revenue ($15.010 million in operations & maintenance expanses and $5.979 million in capital expenditures) over the 2012 through 2014 period, and requests CPUC approval to recover 100 percent.of this forecasted revenue requirement through opt-out fees. SCE proposes to recover the incremental costs associated with the Opt-Out Program from those" resldenliat customers exerciaing the opttoo. The proposal includes an initial fee and monthly charges. These costs include the labor associated with the remov= of the opt-out meter and the installation of the Edison SmadConhect~ meter when a customer leaves the Opt-Out Program, These fees will be discounted by 20 percent for those customers enrolled in the CARE program (the CARE discount will be allocated to all retepayers, except Street Lighting customers, on an equal-cenis.per-kilewatt hour basis pursuant to CA Public Utilities Code Sec~on 327(aX7) and consistent with Commisslen practice), The following table presents SCE's proposed fees for opt-out customers, based on the forecast revenue requirements and estimates of opt-out participants: CARE 1578 $19 Any ~ dengas in mes, or appm~ of any nd~or~ op~o~ eee, w~ he de~ed by ~e comr~asion. EVIDENTIARY HEARINGS The CPUC holds Evldenttary Hearings whereby the formal parties of record provide testimony and are subject to cress-examination before the assigned CPUC Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). These bearings are open to the public to attend and listen, but only those who are formal parlies of record are allowed to participate. One party is the Division of Ratepayor Advocates (DRA), which consists of engineers, accountants, economists and attorneyswhe independently evaluate the proposals of utilities and present their analyses and recommendatlofis for the CPUC at the Evldantiary Hearings. The CPUC has its ow~ court reporters who will record the participation of parties in the Evldenttary Hearings.

Parties may offer proposals that differ from those presented by the utilities. Evidentiary Hearings will begin on Monday, November 5, 2012 at 10:00 a.m and may continue each working day through Friday, November 16, 2012 (if needed). The ALJ may modify the schedule at a later date, and wilt preside over the Evidentiary Hearings. The assigned Commissioner may be in attendance as well. The evidontiary hearings will be held at a designated CPUC hearing room in San Francisco, CA at the address noted above. Additionally, Public Partidpatton Hearings (PPHs) will be held separately in December in various locations throughout California.
