The Connecticut PURA has issued a notice of stay concerning certain directives to the utilities regarding the implementation of the next rate information requirements on bills.
PURA stated that, pursuant to the Final Decision in Docket NO. 14-07-19RE01 issued on March 28, 2018 (Decision), Orders Nos. 1 and 2 had directed that the electric distribution companies (EDC), no later than July 1, 2018:
1) display "Not Provided" or leave the next cycle rate field blank on customer bills if an electric supplier does not timely provide the next cycle rate, and
2) provide a monthly report indicating a list of all residential electric suppliers and the total number of residential customer bills for which the suppliers have not provided the Next Rate data in a timely manner.
PURA noted that on May 21, 2018, The Connecticut Light & Power Company d/b/a Eversource Energy (CL&P) filed a Motion for Clarification regarding the Decision. To explore the clarification that CL&P sought, the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (Authority) had scheduled a technical meeting on July 5, 2018, which is pending rescheduling.
"Therefore, the Authority hereby stays the Decision pending resolution of the issues to be explored at and clarified after the upcoming technical meeting," PURA said in its notice of stay
As indicated above, the previously announced July 5 technical meeting will no longer occur on July 5 and will be rescheduled. The Authority will issue a Revised Notice of Technical Meeting under a separate letter.
