(Respondent) alleging that the Respondent violated Federal Power Act section 205 by (i) failing to recalculate the Net Cost of New Entry (“Net CONE”) for the proxy unit for the New York City Installed Capacity Markets and the resulting New York City Demand Curves, upon the legislative elimination of New York City's Industrial and Commercial Incentive Program real property tax exemption, thereby producing significantly understated New York City Demand Curves that will yield unjust and unreasonable rates for the remainder of the current reset period (through April 2011); and (ii) by improperly applying Start Printed Page 62493the standard under the Commission-approved ISO Agreement, section 19.01, for “exigent circumstances” in its failure to act, thereby producing rates that are unjust and unreasonable. Complainants request that the Commission order the Respondent to promptly file tariff amendments increasing the New York City Demand Curves to account for certain property tax costs in the calculation of the Net CONE, beginning with the spot market auction that is held following the Commission's order in this proceeding.
The Complainants request fast track processing of the complaint.
