Application:

Application by Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (“Hydro”) for approval of the rates to be charged to Industrial customers.

Decision:

The Board finds that in the circumstances its jurisdiction to make orders in relation to how the RSP operated in prior years is limited.  Given the manner in which this matter was brought forward the Board does not have the jurisdiction to change how Newfoundland Power’s RSP operated in prior years, either in terms of the rates charged or the resulting balances.  The Board does have the jurisdiction to issue an order which sets just and reasonable rates for the Industrial Customers for 2008 and 2009, including the Industrial Customers’ RSP rates and how the Industrial Customers RSP operated for those years.  The Board also finds that it has jurisdiction to determine whether any overpayment as a result of the interim rates is to be refunded to the Industrial Customers or placed in a reserve account to the benefit of the Industrial Customers.  Given these findings it is not necessary to make a determination at this time in relation to the 2007 year-end balance or the issues raised by Abitibi.  These matters will be addressed in the context of the setting of final rates by the Board for the Industrial Customers as of January 1, 2008 and the Board’s determination in relation to any resulting balances.
