Comments requested on the rate impact provision in CETA

Commerce is conducting a workshop with the Utility and Transportation Commission (UTC) on March 17 to discuss the methodology for calculating the incremental cost of CETA compliance. This provision is RCW 19.405.060(4) for consumer-owned utilities. To help prepare for that workshop, Commerce is requesting written comments from stakeholders. The UTC requested comments on the same topic, as applied to investor-owned utilities, in Docket UE-191023. Comments are due Feb. 28, and the request for comment is available on Commerce’s CETA rulemaking webpage.

Details will be provided before the workshop.
