Commonwealth Edison has filed at the Illinois Commerce Commission to remove the administrative costs associated with procuring renewable energy credits and zero emissions credits from the bypassable electric supply rates
Under recent statutory changes, ComEd was assigned the obligation to recover costs related to renewable procurements and nuclear procurements from all customers, with competitive retail suppliers not (or no longer, in the case of RPS) assigned such costs.
Specifically, under the filing, "Commonwealth Edison Company (Company) proposes revisions to Rate BESH - Basic Electric Service Hourly Pricing (Rate BESH), Rider PE - Purchased Electricity (Rider PE), Rider REA - Renewable Energy Adjustment (Rider REA), and Rider ZEA - Zero Emission Adjustment (Rider ZEA) to allocate administrative costs incurred by the Company in association with arranging and providing for the supply of renewable energy credits to meet the requirements of both subsection 1-75(c) of the Illinois Power Agency (IPA) Act and Section 16-111.5 of the Act and to allocate administrative costs incurred by the Company in association with arranging and providing for the supply of zero emission credits to meet the requirements of subsection 1-75(d-5) of the Illinois Power Agency (IPA) Act to Rider REA and Rider ZEA, respectively. ComEd also proposes revisions to both Rate BESH and Rider PE to reduce the administrative costs allocated to Rate BESH and Rider PE, respectively, to reflect the allocation of the administrative costs to Rider REA and Rider ZEA."
ComEd is proposing to have these revisions become effective on April 20, 2019.
