Take notice on August 1, 2006, pursuant to Rule 215(a)(3)(i), Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) filed an amended motion for revocation of the qualifying facility (QF) status of the cogeneration facility proposed by Lawton Cogeneration, L.L.C. (Lawton) which was obtained by self recertification and a petition for declaratory order asking the Commission to find: Any further amendments to the QF would render the Lawton Facility a new cogeneration facility pursuant to CFR 292.205(d); if the Lawton Facility does not meet the standards pursuant to § 292.205(a) when it commences operations, PSO will not have to purchase power from the Lawton Facility and cannot be compelled to enter into a contract that requires otherwise; if the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) compels PSO to pay Lawton an avoided energy cost based on heat rate of a peaking plant it would be in contravention of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978; and that the OCC has no authority to compel PSO to name Lawton as a designated Network Resource of PSO, as such as is preempted by the Federal Power Act, an in any event Order 888 does not compel utilities to purchase transmission service for any third party.
