Take notice that on April 4, 2005, the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) filed a complaint against Central Maine Power Company (CMP) and Bangor Hydro-Electric Company (BHE), alleging that the currently effective returns on equity (ROE) for CMP and BHE are unjust and unreasonable. MPUC states that it bases its claim on the testimony filed by the Start Printed Page 19072Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control in Docket No. ER04-157-004, et al. MPUC request that the Commission: (1) Consolidate its complaint with the proceeding in Docket No. ER04-157-004 et al., (2) set the refund effective date at 60 days after the date of its complaint filing, (3) find that the current ROEs for CMP and BHE are unjust and unreasonable and that the ROEs for both RNS and LNS must be reduced to 8.74 percent or not more than 9.26 percent, and (4) order that the ROEs of the other New England Transmission Owners be reduced to the same extent.
