Take notice that on September 15, 2000, the Cities of Anaheim, Azusa, Banning, Colton, and Riverside, California (Southern Cities), tendered for filing a Complaint against the California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO). The Southern Cities' Complaint asserts: (1) That the ISO's currently effective mechanism for recovering costs it incurs for Out-of-Market (OOM) dispatch calls is unjust and unreasonable in violation of the Federal Power Act, and (2) that the ISO has violated its Tariff by charging for Neutrality Adjustment Charges in excess of the limit on such charges in effect from June 1, 2000 through September 15, 2000. The Southern Cities urges the Commission: (1) To issue an order requiring the ISO to change § 126.96.36.199.1 of the ISO Tariff to provide that OOM costs incurred by the ISO to meet underscheduled loads will be recovered from the Scheduling Coordinators that have underscheduled, and (2) to issue an order requiring the ISO to abide by the cap on Neutrality Adjustment Charges in § 188.8.131.52 of the ISO Tariff, which became effective on June 1, 2000, and to refund Neutrality Adjustment Charges in excess of that cap collected for trading intervals subsequent to that date.
