The Secretary of the New York PSC issued a notice concerning petitions for rehearing of the PSC's previously reported December 2019 retail energy market reset order, and set a date for responses to the petitions
"The petitions for rehearing will be treated as timely filed within the 30-day period prescribed in Public Service Law (PSL) §22 and 16 NYCRR §3.7(a).
"The statute of limitations to seek review by filing an Article 78 proceeding is tolled as to the applicant for rehearing by a timely petition for rehearing under PSL §22. With respect to the parties seeking rehearing in these proceedings, the four-month period to seek review under CPLR §217 will not commence until issuance of a Commission decision on rehearing.
"A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking has been filed with the Department of State with respect to the petitions and supporting responses. Consistent with that notice, comments on the petitions pursuant to the State Administrative Procedure Act will be due by April 13, 2020. Joint comments are encouraged. Upon conducting its evaluation of the rehearing petitions, the Commission may reaffirm its initial decision or adhere to it with additional rationale in denying the petitions, modify or reverse the decision in granting the petitions in whole or in part, or take such other or further action as it deems necessary with respect to the petitions.
"PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that, pursuant to 16 NYCRR §3.3(a)(1), the time for further responses to the petitions for rehearing under 16 NYCRR §3.7(c) is hereby extended to April 13, 2020."
