Take notice that on September 21, 2009, pursuant to Rule 602 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.602, New York State Electric & Gas Corporation (NYSEG), Niagara Mohawk Start Printed Page 53493Power Corporation d/b/a National Grid (National Grid), and the New York Municipal Power Agency (NYMPA) (collectively, settling parties) filed a partial offer of settlement (Settlement Agreement) in Docket Nos. EL09-26-000 and EL09-26-001. The Settlement Agreement seeks to resolve several issues arising out of NYSEG's December 23, 2008 petition for a declaratory order regarding invoices issued by the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) between 1999 and 2008 to market participants, in certain NYSEG and National Grid metering subzones that were affected by metering errors. The invoices at issue are identified in Appendices 5 and 6 of the Joint Stipulation of Facts Not in Dispute which is attached to the Settlement Agreement. The settling parties assert that they were unable to reach an agreement on whether the Commission should order NYISO to correct the invoices affected by the metering errors during the period in question (reserved issue).
The settling parties have agreed to present the reserved issue to the Commission for determination and have also requested that the Commission allow comments on the Settlement Agreement and permit briefs to be filed on the reserved issue.
