Take notice that on July 19, 2001, The New Power Company (New Power) filed a complaint requesting that the Commission find that (1) the rules for ensuring reliable electric service in the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland (PJM) control area have resulted in prices for capacity in the PJM auction and bilateral markets that are unjust and unreasonable, and (2) the continued imposition of the existing capacity requirement and deficiency charge on load serving entities (LSEs) under the current changed circumstances resulting from restructuring, is unjust and unreasonable, and unduly discriminatory and preferential. New Power further requests that the Commission order PJM to eliminate immediately the recently imposed seasonal deficiency penalty and set the Capacity Deficiency Rate (CDR) on a daily basis at the higher of the marginal cost of the least efficient capacity resource required to make up the deficiency on that day or the Alternate Value, i.e., the difference between the energy prices on that day at the Cinergy Hub and PJM's Western Hub.
New Power requests that the Commission set a refund effective date of 60 days from the date of filing of its complaint.
Copies of New Power's filing were served on PJM, all parties to PJM's Reliability Assurance Agreement and each state electric utility regulatory commission in the PJM control area.
