52 Pa. Code § 69.3301. Purpose and scope.

§ 69.3301. Purpose and scope.

 Federal and State policy initiatives promote the efficient use of electricity, natural gas and water through technologies and information, including distributed energy resources. The purpose of this policy statement is to invite the proposal, within a utility’s base rate proceeding, of fixed utility distribution ratemaking mechanisms and rate designs that further promote these Federal and State policy objectives, the objectives of 66 Pa.C.S. §  1330 (relating to alternative ratemaking for utilities), and may include reducing disincentives for promoting these objectives, providing incentives to improve system economic efficiency, and avoiding unnecessary future capital investments while ensuring that fixed utilities receive adequate revenue to maintain the safe, secure and reliable operation of their distribution systems. At the same time, an alternative rate design methodology should reflect the sound application of cost of service principles, establish a rate structure that is just and reasonable, and consider customer impacts.


   The provisions of this §  69.3301 adopted August 23, 2019, effective August 24, 2019, 49 Pa.B. 4819.
