Take notice that on January 14, 2003, New York State Electric & Gas Corporation (NYSEG) tendered for filing a complaint alleging that the New York Independent System Operator, Inc. (NYISO) has failed to enforce the expiration date in Attachment L of the NYISO Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT) with respect to grandfathering for a pre-NYISO transmission service agreement (TSA) between Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation (NMPC) and Allegheny Electric Cooperative, Inc. (AEC). NYSEG requests that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) issue an order that, among other things: (1) Requires the NYISO to provide to NYSEG the billing information needed by NYSEG to bill AEC (or its designated agent) for NYSEG's Transmission Service Charge (TSC) under the NYISO OATT commencing as of July 1, 2001; (2) requires AEC (or the party contractually obligated to pay NYISO OATT charges for AEC) to pay NYSEG's TSC under the NYISO OATT (plus interest) commencing as of July 1, 2001; and (3) to avoid double billing, directs NMPC to make all appropriate refunds to AEC (with interest) for transmission charges collected from AEC under the NMPC service agreement after its June 30, 2001 grandfathering expiration date.
NYSEG states that copies of the filing were served upon the NYISO, NMPC, AEC, and the New York Power Authority.
