In the Matter of the Application of The Dayton Power and Light Company to Establish a Standard Service Offer in the Form of an Electric Security Plan, Case No. 2014-1505
Public Utilities Commission of Ohio
- Was it lawful for the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) to approve a service stability rider for The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L) that collects an additional $110 million per year from customers for three years?
- Are the charges to be collected by the service stability rider "transition revenues" or "any equivalent revenues" that the company is prevented from collecting by state law?
- Did the PUCO violate the U.S. Constitution's "supremacy clause" when it authorized DP&L to collect revenues in excess of federally authorized wholesale electricity rates?
- Did the PUCO violate state law when it imposed five conditions on DP&L in order to collect revenue through a service stability rider extension?
- Did the PUCO act unreasonably when it accelerated the deadline for DP&L to transfer its generation assets to an affiliate, and when it accelerated the schedule for implementing competitive bidding in DP&L's service territory?
