2020 Power Purchase Agreement Costs
Compliance
Case No. PU-21-336
NOTICE OF OPPORTUNITY FOR HEARING
August 4, 2021
On July 19, 2021, Northern States Power Company (NSP) filed a compliance filing in accordance with Section I.B.I of the Comprehensive Settlement Agreement in Case No. PU-12-813 et. al. Section I.B.I requires NSP to annually provide a list of new Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) less than 50 MW in size that have been included in NSP's Fuel Cost Recovery Rider (FCR) during the previous year. This filing states that the North Dakota jurisdictional share of the costs associated with a PPA with WM Renewable Energy, LLC was added to the FCR in 2020. This PPA adds approximately $0.01 per month to the bill of a residential customer using 750 kWh.
The issues to be considered in this proceeding are:
1. Is this PPA a least cost resource?
2. Is there other relevant information the Commission should consider?
Those interested are invited to comment on the application in writing. Persons desiring a hearing must file a written request identifying their interest in the proceeding and the reasons for requesting a hearing. Comments and requests for hearing must be received by September 17, 2021. If deemed appropriate, the Commission can determine the matter without a hearing.
