A proposed settlement would allow Pacific Gas & Electric to get $186 million in shareholder incentives out of its $207 million claim. The motion between the utility and the Office of Ratepayer Advocates, filed April 4, would resolve future claims for incentives for past years, according to PG&E. ORA agrees that much of the utility?s claimed energy savings through implementing demand-side management, energy-efficiency, and low-income energy-efficiency programs are coming to fruition, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing by PG&E. PG&E has already collected $28 million of that money through ratepayers? public-good surcharges. The rest would be collected throughout 2006.
