Project #37909

Rulemaking Proceeding to Amend PUC Subst. Rule §25.193, Relating to Distribution Service Provider Transmission Cost Recovery Factors (TCRF)

Summary

The Commission proposes an amendment to §25.193, relating to Distribution Service Provider Transmission Cost Recovery Factors (TCRF)to allow a distribution service provider (DSP) to reflect in its rates an adjustment that credits or charges to the DSP's ratepayers the difference between (1) the amount of transmission service providers' commission-approved wholesale transmission costs that are paid by the DSP and not included in the base rates of the DSP, and (2) the revenues recovered through the DSP's TCRF. The amendment reflects any such adjustment in the DSP's subsequent TCRF update and provides for the crediting or charging of associated carryings costs based on the over/underbilling interest rate established pursuant to §25.28, relating to Bill Payment and Adjustments.
