Testimony Regarding Temporary Rates
In testimony submitted February 6, 2007, the New York State Department of State Division of Consumer Protection demonstrates that the Company has earned excess profits in recent years, and is projected to continue to do so in the future. We explain why the New York State Public Service Commission should protect ratepayers by establishing temporary rates at current levels, until it determines the appropriate level of permanent rates.
Motion for Emergency Action
In this motion dated January 19, 2007, the New York State Department of State Division of Consumer Protection explains why the procedural schedule established by the Administrative Law Judge in this proceeding would not adequately protect the Company's ratepayers. We urge the New York State Public Service Commission to revise the Judge's schedule and resolve this matter expeditiously.
Orange & Rockland Utilities -- Electric Operations
The New York State Department of State Division of Consumer Protection filed a formal complaint with the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) on November 8, 2006, regarding excessive rates charged by Orange & Rockland for electric delivery service. The Division demonstrates that the Company is earning excessive profits and that its profits are expected to increase even further in the future. We recommend that the PSC promptly revise portions of the Company's current rate plan to help ensure that rates paid by Orange & Rockland's electric delivery customers are just and reasonable.
