Take notice that on June 18, 2002, Public Utility District No. 1 of Snohomish County, Washington (Snohomish) filed a complaint against American Electric Power Service Corporation (AEP), as agent for the Operating Companies of American Electric Power Company, Inc., concerning a long-term power supply contract executed by AEP with Snohomish in January 2001, when the Western energy markets allegedly were dysfunctional. Snohomish requests that the Commission: (i) revoke AEP's market-based rate authority; and (2) terminate the contract or, in the alternative, reform the price to the $24/MWh historical average in the Pacific Northwest. Snohomish also requests that the Commission set a refund effective date as early as July 2, 2001, and not later than 60 days from the date of filing of its complaint. A copy of the complaint was served on AEP.
Snohomish has requested privileged treatment of certain information in the complaint, and has filed privileged and public copies of the complaint, a request for privileged treatment, and a protective agreement.
