Take notice that on June 22, 2000, the Boylston Municipal Light Department and 21 other Secondary Purchasers of power from the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Generating Station (Secondary Purchasers), tendered for filing a complaint against Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corporation (VY) and the seven non-Vermont Sponsors of VY from whom the Secondary Purchasers obtain their entitlements to VY capacity and energy. The complaint asserts that VY is violating the terms of the contractual formula rate by currently collecting in its charges to the Sponsors (who in turn pass through a share of those charges to the Secondary Purchasers) certain transaction expenses incurred in connection with the proposed sale of the VY plant. The complaint requests refunds of all such transaction costs that the Secondary Purchasers have paid. The complaint also asserts that upon consummation of the proposed plant sale, the Secondary Purchasers will have contributed more than their contractual share of VY's total costs relating to decommissioning of the VY plant, and requests refunds of such excess contributions upon consummation of the plant sale. The Secondary Purchasers also request that the complain proceedings be consolidated with the review of the proposed plant sale transaction under Federal Power Act Sections 203 and 205 in Docket Nos. EC00-46-000, ER00-1027-000, ER00-1028-000, ER00-1029-000, ER00-1030-000, and EL00-33-000.
