Take notice that on June 10, 2014, pursuant to sections 206 and 306 of the Federal Power Act, 16 USC 824e, 825e, and Rule 206 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission), 18 CFR 385.206, E.ON Climate & Renewables North America LLC, Pioneer Trail Wind Farm, LLC, and Settlers Trail Wind Farm, LLC (Complainants) filed a complaint against Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO). The Complainants allege that the “Multiplier” provisions contained in two Transmission Upgrade Agreements (TUAs) between the Complainants and NIPSCO are unjust, unreasonable, and unduly discriminatory. The Complainants request that the Commission find that the Multiplier provision of the TUAs is unjust and unreasonable and unduly discriminatory, and that the Commission direct NIPSCO to remove the Multiplier from the TUAs at the earliest possible effective date. In the alternative, Complainants allege that the Commission should review the individual cost components comprising the Multiplier, including rate of return, depreciation expense, and operation and maintenance expense, and authorize NIPSCO to recover through the Multiplier only those costs that it is able to show that it actually incurs.
The Complainants certify that copies of the complaint were served on the contacts for NIPSCO as listed on the Commission's list of Corporate Officials in accordance with Rule 206(c), 18 CFR 385.206(c).
