Start Preamble August 25, 2003.

Take notice that on August 21, 2003, the Maine Public Utilities Commission, the Maine Public Advocate, the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission, the Rhode Island Division of Public Utilities and Carriers, the Rhode Island Attorney General, Pinpoint Power, NRG Energy, Inc. and Gen Power, LLC (collectively, Complainants) filed a Complaint Requesting Fast Track Processing against the New England Power Pool and ISO New England, Inc. (NEPOOL/ISO-NE) pursuant to Sections 206 and 306 of the Federal Power Act and Rule 206 of the Commission's Rules (18 CFR 385.206). Complainants request that the Commission reject the methodology currently proposed by NEPOOL/ISO-NE for allocating the costs of transmission upgrades in New England. Complainants request the Commission to adopt instead the Complainants' proposal, which Complainants assert provides an appropriate method for allocating transmission upgrade costs to the load that benefits from the upgrade.
