IURC Closed Cases

45744 - Reliability Confidentiality Docket

File date: 7/6/2022

Order date: 9/28/2022

Status: approved

The five electric investor-owned utilities requested the Commission to find, on an emergency and expedited basis, that certain information they submitted to the Commission in compliance with House Enrolled Act 1520 is confidential, proprietary, competitively sensitive, and/or trade secret exempt from public disclosure. This information consists of forecasts of each utility’s aggregate demand, aggregate and individual resources and contracts, and capacity positions. Notably, these utilities waited for almost three months to seek confidential treatment for this information submitted to the Commission on April 15, 2022, with the Commission, as a result, inadvertently disclosing said information with others, such as the other utilities, MISO, and PJM. CAC attended the evidentiary hearing held on August 3, 2022, and was able to negotiate with some utilities to have fewer redactions to said material before the hearing began.



OUCC Closed Cases

45736 - Affordability Data Investigation

File date: 6/23/2022

Order date: 10/26/2022

Status: dismissed

The OUCC requested an IURC investigation to evaluate the need for monthly utility reporting of disconnection and customer arrearage data. While Indiana law generally does not require utilities to report such data to the Commission, the Commission has broad authority to require such reporting. However, in its filed petition, the OUCC cited ongoing economic conditions including inflation and significant increases in wholesale natural gas costs, which are driving higher rates for electric and natural gas consumers. The OUCC noted that the IURC required most of the large investor-owned utilities to report similar data throughout most of 2020 and all of 2021 in its investigation of rate impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The petition asks the IURC to require all IURC-jurisdictional Indiana utilities with at least 8,000 customer accounts to report certain data on a monthly basis through the end of 2024, including but not limited to the number and balance of accounts in arrears, in active payment arrangements, and facing disconnection. CAC is in support of this request, although we would like (1) expanded reporting metrics, particularly to collect and disaggregate LIHEAP customer data, and (2) this reporting to continue indefinitely and not cease at the end of 2024.
