Proceedings to establish fair and reasonable electric service rates

The Act 57-2014, as amended, known as the Energy Transformation and RELIEF Act gives the Puerto Rico Energy Commission exclusive primary jurisdiction to approve rates and charges established by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) in connection with any electric power service provided to consumers.

PREPA’s current rates have not been reviewed in a long time and do not take into account the administrative, operational and energy demand changes, among others. To address this, the act establishes Rate Case or rate review procedure, where PREPA presents to the Commission a formal request for new electric power service rates in conjunction with the evidence to support the decisions taken to present said rates.

On June 13 the PREC issued an Order and Resolution, determining that the Petition for Rate Review filed on May 27, 2016 by PREPA was incomplete since it omitted certain information and documents required by Regulation 8720. Between June 24, 2016 and July 5, 2016, PREPA filed three (3) motions containing the information and documents required to correct the deficiencies identified. After examining the information and documents provided by PREPA, the PREC determined on July 15, 2016 that the Petition, as supplemented, was complete.

Any person or entity that has a legitimate interest in this proceeding may request intervention pursuant to the dispositions of Regulation 8543. Every request for intervention shall be completed and filed at the PREC Clerk’s Office and a copy shall be sent by email. The period for filing intervention requests will begin on August 1, 2016 and will end on August 5, 2016.
