§ 69.2702. Background and ratemaking elements.

 (a)  The act brought city owned natural gas operations, including PGW, under the Commission’s jurisdiction. See 66 Pa.C.S. §  2212(b) (relating to Commission jurisdiction).

 (b)  The Commission is obligated under law to use the cash flow methodology to determine PGW’s just and reasonable rates. Included in that requirement is the subsidiary obligation to provide revenue allowances from rates adequate to cover its reasonable and prudent operating expenses, depreciation allowances and debt service, as well as sufficient margins to meet bond coverage requirements and other internally generated funds over and above its bond coverage requirements, as the Commission deems appropriate and in the public interest for purposes such as capital improvements, retirement of debt and working capital.
