On May 6, 2015, the Virginia State Corporation Commission (the “SCC”) issued an Order for Notice and Hearing (the “Order”) responding to Appalachian Power’s (“APCo”) application requesting approval for a voluntary program pursuant to which a non-residential customer can purchase renewable energy generated by a facility, located on or adjacent to its metered property, that is owned and operated by a third party developer (the “Application”). We covered their initial application here.
In its Order, the SCC instructed APCo to provide public notice of its Application, which is to provide that a public hearing on the Application is to be held at 10:00 a.m. on September 29, 2015. The public notice must also explain that any person or entity interested in participating as a respondent in the proceeding must file, on or before July 23, 2015, a notice of participation. The procedure and timing for an interested party to submit testimony, exhibits and written comments to the Application is also to be set forth in the notice.
