Take notice that on June 16, 2014, pursuant to section 306 of Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. 825(e) (2012), and Rule 206 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission), 18 CFR 385.206 (2013), the Alliance for Retail Energy Markets (AReM) and Shell Energy North America (US), L.P. (SENA) (collectively, the Coalition) filed a formal complaint against California Independent System Operator Corporation (CAISO) requesting that the Commission find that certain charges that are characterized as “refunds”, which CAISO intends to charge the Coalition and similarly situated entities, are illegal retroactive rate increases/surcharges and require CAISO to cease and desist from attempting to charge them. The Coalition requests that the Commission investigate the process by which the refunds have been calculated and require CAISO to respond to disputes that have been properly raised.Start Printed Page 36049
