N.C. Postpones Action on Dispersed Energy Facilities
The North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) has decided to postpone its generic investigation of "dispersed energy facilities" finding that no proposals for the unique electric rate mechanism had been filed since it opened the case in 1994. The NCUC had added the dispersed energy facility issue (utility construction of new generation facilities on customer property, or acquisition of existing self-generation facilities) to a case involving guidelines for self-generation deferral rates and economic incentive rates, finding a commonality of "underlying circumstances." (For interim guidelines on self-generation deferral rates and economic incentive rates, see 153 PUR4th 283 and 155 PUR4th 506.) Re Self-generation Deferral Rates, Docket No. E-100, Sub 73, Aug. 9, 1995 (N.C.U.C.).
