A Texas PUC ALJ granted Constellation NewEnergy Inc.'s motion for good cause to accept Constellation's late-filed request to serve as a volunteer POLR (VREP) for the 2019-20 term.
Under 16 TAC § 25.43(i), requests to serve as a volunteer POLR were due no later than July 31, 2018.
Constellation NewEnergy stated that preparation of the filing was completed by the July 31, 2018 deadline, but that the Commission did not receive the paperwork until August 1, 2018, one business day later. Constellation NewEnergy represents that the delay was due to an inadvertent internal miscommunication. Constellation NewEnergy contends no party is prejudiced by considering its request to serve as a VREP. No objections to Constellation NewEnergy's motion were filed.
"Under 16 TAC § 22.5(b), the administrative law judge finds good cause exists to grant Constellation NewEnergy's motion and accepts the late filing," the ALJ said
TXU is the only other REP that volunteered to serve as a VREP for the 2019-20 term
