Alliance Submits Comments to Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission on Standby Rates

Jun 1, 2017

The Alliance submitted public comments that urge the Public Utility Commission to review each Pennsylvania utility’s standby tariffs to ensure equitable revenue allocation and rates which are correlated to cost of service. In the comments, the Alliance recommends that the PUC adopt a policy statement that includes a model tariff to help Pennsylvania utilities achieve fair rates, accurate cost recovery, and reductions in peak load. The Alliance also recommends that the PUC initiate a rule making and schedule a workshop to address standby rates specifically.

Eight manufacturers, developers, and institutions also delivered a letter to the Pennsylvania PUC in support of fair and reasonable standby rates.
