Rates – Extension Application
On February 11, 2020, Direct Energy Regulated Services (“DERS”) filed an application with the AUC requesting approval to continue operating under its current energy price setting plan (“EPSP”), as approved in Decision 24296-D01-2019.
In Decision 24296-D01-2019, the AUC approved DERS’ EPSP with an expiry date of April 30, 2020. As DERS’ application for a new EPSP has not yet been filed, a decision approving a new EPSP would not be issued by April 30, 2020. Accordingly, the AUC accepted that April 30, 2020, was no longer viable for implementation of DERS’ next EPSP and considered DERS’ request to continue its current EPSP to be reasonable. The AUC granted DERS’ proposal to continue the current EPSP until its next EPSP is approved by the AUC, or the AUC otherwise directs.
