Take notice that on April 7, 2000, the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative (CMEEC) filed a complaint against Connecticut Yankee Atomic Power Company (CY) and Connecticut Light & Power Company (CL&P). The complaint asserts that CY operated its nuclear generating plant imprudently before prematurely retiring it in December 1996, and that CY and CL&P have charged CMEEC through their formula rates approximately $2.2 million (from 1995 through 1998) for costs attributable to CY's imprudence or improper formula-rate collections of decommissioning costs. The Complaint requests that the Commission summarily find CY imprudent or, in the alternative, find that CMEEC has made a prima facie showing of imprudence and require CY to show affirmatively that it was prudent. The Complaint further requests that the Commission begin an investigation to identify the costs that CY and CL&P have improperly charged CMEEC through their formula rates and order them to refund such amounts.
