 (a)  An electric distribution company (EDC), as defined in 66 Pa.C.S. §  2803 (relating to definitions), shall submit to the Commission the Annual Resource Planning Report (ARPR) that contains the information prescribed in this subchapter. An original of the report shall be submitted on or before May 1, 2000 and May 1 of each succeeding year. One copy of the report shall also be submitted to the Office of Consumer Advocate (OCA) and the Office of Small Business Advocate (OSBA). The name and telephone number of all persons having knowledge of the matters, and to whom inquiries should be addressed, shall be included.

 (b)  As a condition to receiving a copy of the ARPR, the OCA and OSBA shall be obligated to honor and treat as confidential those portions of the report designated by the utility as proprietary.

   (1)  If the Commission, OCA, OSBA or any person challenges the proprietary claim as frivolous or not otherwise justified, the Secretary’s Bureau will issue, upon written request, a Secretarial letter directing the EDC to file a petition for protective order under §  5.423 (relating to orders to limit availability of proprietary information) within 14 days.

   (2)  Absent the timely filing of such a petition, the proprietary information claim will be deemed to have been waived. The proprietary claim will be honored during the Commission’s consideration of the petition for protective order.
