The policy statement applies only to coordination sales between utilities; the interim rule applies to filings needed to recover the cost of allowances in rates. The guidelines allow utilities:
To recover the incremental costs of emission allowances in coordination rates if the rate includes incremental costs
To file an alternative allowance method if a filed coordination rate does not include incremental costs
To base their emission allowance costs on an index or combination of indices.
Comments on the interim rule will be due 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The policy statement and the interim rule became effective January 1, 1995.
