Pepco, Delmarva Ask to Withdraw SOS CWC Tariffs from Admin Meeting
Pepco and Delmarva Power filed formal requests with the Maryland PSC to withdraw their January 18, 2011 tariff filings, under which SOS rates would be increased next month to reflect higher cash working capital costs, from today's PSC administrative meeting (see 1/25).  It was not clear what effect withdrawing the tariffs from the Commission meeting would have on the utilities' previous intention to place the tariffs into service by operation of law.

DPUC Draft Would Set Hearing on NU-Nstar Review Question
The Connecticut DPUC issued a draft administrative order yesterday under which it would hold public hearings and oral arguments regarding whether it has, and if so should exercise, authority over the Nstar-Northeast Utilities merger.  As only noted in Matters (1/20), a pending draft order would affirm a prior decision that the DPUC need not approve the merger.  The hearing would be held to further inform the Commission before issuing a final order on the jurisdictional issue.  Separately, Sen. John Fonfara and Rep. Vickie Nardello asked the DPUC to hold such hearings as contemplated by the draft, noting that while they could introduce legislation to address their concerns about their merger, they prefer to "honor the regulatory process."
