ORDER GRANTING EXPEDITED TREATMENT, OVERRULING OBJECTION, AND APPROVING COMPLIANCE TARIFFS

 

Issue Date:  January 23, 2013                              Effective Date:  January 26, 2013

 

The Missouri Public Service Commission is granting the motions for expedited treatment (“motions”) of the tariff sheets filed in compliance with the Report and Order[1] (“compliance tariffs”), overruling the objection to the compliance tariffs, and approving the compliance tariffs.

Kansas City Power & Light Company (“KCPL”) and KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations Company (“GMO”) filed the compliance tariffs. [2] Applicants also filed substitute tariff sheets.[3] With the compliance tariffs, KCPL and GMO (“Applicants”) filed the motions. The Office of the Public Counsel (“OPC”) filed opposition to the compliance tariffs and to the motions.[4] Staff filed its recommendation[5] in favor of approving the compliance tariffs and granting the motions.

In File No. ER-2012-0174, the Commission received an Objection to Tariff (“objection”),[6] with responses to the objections from Applicants and Staff.[7] The objection cites a dispute that the Commission addressed in the Report and Order[8] without reaching the merits. [9] The dispute arose too late in KCPL’s general rate action for full consideration. Also, a separate action on that matter is now pending.[10] Therefore, the Commission will overrule the objection, again without reaching the merits of the matter.

For good cause, as set forth in the order dated January 16,[11] the Commission will grant the motions and expedite the Commission’s ruling on the compliance tariffs. The Commission may approve any tariff without a hearing or any other procedure.[12] For reasons set forth in the Report and Order, the Commission concludes that the compliance tariffs support safe and adequate service at just and reasonable rates.

Based on those rulings, the Commission will approve the compliance tariffs to become effective on January 26.

THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:

1.     The motions for expedited treatment are granted.

2.     The Objection to Tariffs is overruled.

3.     In File No. ER-2012-0174, the tariff sheets, to which the Commission assigned Tracking No. YE-2013-0325, as filed on January 16, 2013 and substituted on January 18, 2013, are approved to become effective on January 26, 2013. The specific tariff sheets approved in this paragraph are set forth in Appendix A.

4.     In File No. ER-2012-0175, the tariff sheets, to which the Commission assigned Tracking No. YE-2013-0326, as filed on January 16, 2013 and substituted on January 18, 2013, are approved to become effective on January 26, 2013. The specific tariff sheets approved in this paragraph are set forth in Appendix B.

5.     This order is effective on January 26, 2013.

[9] The dispute relates to the opt-out provision under the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act, Section 393.1075, RSMo Supp. 2012. That dispute appeared on no issues list or position statement, because no party was aware of it, until after the evidentiary hearing. KCPL and Staff first brought the dispute to the Commission’s attention in their Joint Notice of Dispute Between Staff and Kansas City Power & Light Company Regarding Customer Opt Out of Demand-Side Management Programs and Associated Programs' Costs, filed on December 24, 2012.
