Transmission Customer Imbalances

A transmission imbalance is the difference between the final scheduled volume on the Flow Day at a Pacific Gas and Electric Company system receipt point and the quantity of gas actually delivered at that receipt point.

If Pacific Gas and Electric Company and customer cannot agree on a date by which to make up the imbalance in-kind, the following rules apply:

  • Positive imbalances require cash-out at the lowest daily commodity price at Malin or Topock
  • Negative imbalances are taken into account on the first transaction during the calendar month following date of imbalance notification
  • Transmission imbalances may not be traded
