Implements Pandemic Response Plan



Strengthens Liquidity



Affirms Capital Expenditure Plan

DALLAS (May 4, 2020) — Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (“Oncor”) today reported three months ended March 31, 2020 net income of $131 million compared to net income of $116 million in the first quarter of 2019.

“COVID-19 has presented our business, our customers, and our economy with unprecedented challenges. The safety and health of our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve is fundamental to everything we do, and we have implemented our pandemic response plan to ensure the safety of all our stakeholders,” said Oncor CEO Allen Nye. “Oncor’s strong results this quarter are a testament to the strength of our business, the resiliency of the Texas economy, and the diversity of the Oncor service territory. We remain focused on providing the critical energy infrastructure and essential, reliable electric service our customers need during this challenging time. Texas will get through this, and come out a stronger, more vibrant economy on the other side.”

Oncor’s $15 million quarter over quarter improvement was primarily driven by the impacts of the assets acquired in the InfraREIT transaction, increases in base transmission and distribution rates, and customer growth, partially offset by lower consumption due to weather, and increases in operation and maintenance expense, depreciation and amortization, property taxes and interest expense. Financial and operational results are provided in Tables A, B, C and D below.

As a critical infrastructure provider of electricity transmission and distribution services, Oncor’s operations have continued throughout the pandemic. Early on, Oncor implemented its pandemic response plan and took various precautionary actions under the plan to protect its workforce and critical operations. In April, Oncor also announced $1.7 million in donations to community non-profit organizations across its service territory that serve those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To aid residential customers unable to pay their electricity bills due to the impact of COVID-19, the Public Utility Commission of Texas (“PUCT”) established the COVID-19 Electricity Relief Program (“COVID-19 ERP”). In April, Oncor began collecting a surcharge on customer bills to fund the program. Oncor also received a $7.3 million interest free unsecured loan from the Electric Reliability Council of Texas to be used for initial funding of the COVID-19 ERP. The PUCT also authorized the creation of regulatory assets with respect to the COVID-19 ERP and other costs resulting from the pandemic, and as a result, Oncor has been recording incremental costs incurred as a result of the pandemic as a regulatory asset.

To date, the COVID-19 pandemic has not had a material adverse impact on Oncor’s business, financial condition, or results of operations. Based on preliminary April 2020 results, distribution base revenues are currently estimated to be approximately 1% higher than April 2019 distribution base revenues, with an estimated 10% increase in residential revenue partially offset by an estimated 5.5% decrease in large commercial and industrial revenue as compared to the same period last year. On a weather normalized basis, distribution base revenues are currently estimated to be approximately 1.7% lower than April 2019 distribution base revenues. Consistent with previous years, we expect weather to continue to be the largest driver of revenues for the remainder of 2020. However, the length and severity of the pandemic are difficult to forecast, and Oncor cannot predict whether, or to what extent, the pandemic will have a material adverse impact on Oncor’s business, financial condition, or results of operations in the future.


Oncor’s available liquidity as of May 1, 2020 totaled $2.5 billion, consisting of cash on hand and available credit capacity. Oncor believes it has sufficient liquidity to fund current obligations, projected working capital requirements, maturities of long-term debt and capital spending for at least the next twelve months.

Capital Expenditures

Last year, Oncor announced the largest five-year capital expenditure plan in its history, expecting to spend $11.9 billion from 2020-2024. In the first quarter of 2020, Oncor continued to execute on that plan, spending $628 million of its planned $2.5 billion of capital expenditures for the year and connecting approximately 18,000 new premises. Over half of the planned five-year capital budget relates to transmission projects, and approximately 90% of the planned transmission projects through 2021 require no further regulatory approvals to begin construction. Oncor is monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 and reduced oil prices on its service territory and planned capital expenditures, but currently does not expect material decreases to its five-year capital expenditure plan.
