For the second time, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) postponed a decision requested by customer groups to stay Dayton Power & Light (DP&L)’s $330 million rider that PUCO had approved last year. The rider is part of DP&L’s electric security plan “designed to ensure stable service while the company divests its generation assets and transitions to the competitive generation market,” according to a recentGongwer report. Customer groups appealing the rider to the Ohio Supreme Court include the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel, Ohio Energy Group, Industrial Energy Users-Ohio, and Ohio Partners for Affordable Energy. According to the report, “the groups argue that the rider guarantees DP&L’s profits in violation of state law that prohibits the company from collecting transition revenues when it was already supposed to be operating in the competitive market.” The customer advocate groups asked PUCO in July to stay DP&L from collecting the rider from its customers, “because customers are unlikely to get a refund if the Supreme Court ultimately rules in their favor.” PUCO has had the customer groups’ request on its agenda for the past two meetings; it has been rescheduled for October 1. DP&L has already begun its collection against the rider.
