The AUC approved the 2021 non-energy COVID-19 deferral account refund balance for $0.465 million for EEC. EEC will distribute the balance to its regulated rate option customers through a rider refund of $0.1162 per site per day from August 1, 2022, to August 31, 2022. The AUC determined that EEC complied with all outstanding directions from Decision 25949-D02-2022.
AUC Rule 001: Rules of Practice.
In Decision 25949-D02-2021, the AUC approved a COVID-19 deferral account for EEC to capture changes to its costs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic for 2021. The deferral account applies to (1) bad debt expense, (2) revenue from final notice fees, (3) revenue from late payment charges, and (4) revenue from site counts.
For the first three categories, the difference between the actual amount for 2021 and the approved forecast amount for 2021 is included in the deferral account. For the site count category, the difference between the actual site count for 2021 and the approved site count forecast for 2021 is calculated. The difference is multiplied by the daily non-energy charge. The amount is included in the deferral account.
