APCo UPDATE: SCC Issues Order for Notice and Hearing

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.
