CCC alleges that Decision 01-03-067, issued by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on March 27, 2001 (Decision), violates PURPA Section 210, 16 U.S.C. 824a-3 which requires, inter alia, that rates for purchases from QFs shall not exceed incremental cost to the utility, nor shall those rates discriminate against qualifying cogenerators or small power producers. The CPUC decision changes the formula by which avoided cost rates are calculated. This change violates PURPA, CCC alleges, for three reasons: (i) QFs will receive less than their full avoided, or incremental, costs for power produced; (ii) the Decision results in discrimination against QFs as compared to wholesalers and investor-owned utilities, particularly Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and (iii) the Decision discourages cogeneration and is not in the public interest. CCC asks this Commission to institute an enforcement action and take prompt action to grant relief to the QFs from the Decision.
