1.  Azusa's High Voltage Base TRR reflects two separately-stated ETC cost components, including an annually-updated forecast of Azusa's ETC costs for the upcoming calendar year and an annually updated true-up of Azusa's ETC costs for a prior twelve-month period. The High Voltage TRR consists of the High Voltage Base TRR plus the High Voltage TRBAA, which can be either positive or negative.

2.  Azusa is a municipal electric utility that is not subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission under Sections 205 and 206 of the Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. 824d and 824e (2018). Azusa became a Participating Transmission Owner (“Participating TO”) in the California Independent System Operator Corporation (“CAISO”) as of January 1, 2003. Without waiving any rights relating to its jurisdictional status, Azusa submits this filing to the Commission, as it previously submitted its TO Tariff in Docket Nos. EL03-14-000 and ER12-489-000, for the purpose of permitting the Commission to review the justness and reasonableness of the CAISO's tariff charges, which include Azusa's TRR as well as the TRRs of other non-jurisdictional and jurisdictional Participating TOs.
