PSC Grants Rehearing In Big Rivers Case
Kentucky utility regulators are revisiting a portion of their decision adjusting revenue and rates for Big Rivers Electric Corp. to offset the loss of its largest customer.
The Kentucky Public Service Commission granted a rehearing yesterday on one of three issues raised in the case.
The issue deals with calculating revenue Big Rivers will receive from the continued operation of its Coleman plant.
Those seeking the rehearing were the state attorney general's office, the Kentucky Industrial Utility Customers Inc. and the Sierra Club. They contend Big Rivers understated annual revenue it will receive for operating the Coleman plant by about $12 million.
In October, the PSC authorized Big Rivers to receive an additional $54.2 million annually from its remaining customers to reflect the loss of a Hawesville smelter as a customer.
