Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission
On May 4, 2010, PacifiCorp d/b/a Pacific Power & Light Company filed a tariff revision that proposed to increase rates and charges for electric service provided to customers in the state of Washington.
The commission suspended the tariff revisions and held evidentiary hearings in January 2011.
On March 25, 2011, the commission entered its Final Order 06. Order 06 rejects revised tariff sheets PacifiCorp filed on May 4, 2010, but authorized and required the Company to file tariff sheets stating rates that will recover approximately $38 million in additional revenue, an increase that the commission finds to be reasonable. At the same time, the commission requires the Company to establish a "tracker" mechanism to return to customers through a monthly bill credit revenues the Company receives from the sale of Renewable Energy Credits.
On May 12, 2011, the commission entered Order 07 - Order Denying Petitions For Reconsideration and Granting Clarification.
The commission set a procedural schedule in this matter on Renewable Energy Credits (REC). By Order 06, the commission resolved all issues in this proceeding except for certain issues regarding the appropriate ratemaking treatment of REC. The commission bifurcated the remaining issues to a separate phase of this proceeding after it had obtained additional evidence in the record.
On December 12, 2011, the commission issued a Notice of Oral Argument for January 31, 2012, at UTC headquarters.
The commission entered Order 10, on August 23, 2012, Order Establishing Disposition of Proceeds From the Sale of Renewable Energy Credits.
On September 4, 2012, PacifiCorp filed a Petition for Reconsideration and Motion to Reopen Record. In conjunction with the petition, PacifiCorp also filed a Petition For Stay of Order 10. By notice issued September 5, parties who wish to respond to the petitions may do so by September 18, 2012.
On November 30, 2012, the commission entered Order 11 - Order Denying Petition For Reconsideration, Motion to Reopen Record, and Petition For Stay in this matter.
