KEY RATING DRIVERS:
The transaction is performing within expectations, with levels of outstanding principal amounts in-line with the targeted amortization schedule. The true-up mechanism is performing as expected, providing adequate credit support for all outstanding classes.
As part of Fitch's initial rating sensitivity, Fitch conducted a break-the-bond case which provides an alternative means by which to measure the potential effects of rapid, significant declines in power consumption while capping the residential securitization charges at 20% of the total customer bill. This analysis determines the maximum level of forecasted energy decline that would cause a default in required payments on the securitizations or cause the tariff charges to exceed 20% of the total residual customer bill. Despite this severe decline in consumption, due to the true-up mechanisms the tariff charges are able to pay all debt service by the legal final maturity date.
