The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio Adopts Electric Security Plan for Dayton Power and Light

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) approved an electric security plan (ESP) for the Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L) that establishes generation rates from Jan. 1, 2014, through Dec. 31, 2016. The plan also sets a schedule for DP&L to move to a competitive market, in which generation rates will be fully set through a competitive bidding process beginning in January 2017. The order obligates DP&L to move quickly to a competitive position in the marketplace and remove barriers to customer choice. This accelerated process will benefit ratepayers immediately with positive long-term benefits for Ohio's businesses and families through an increase in customer choice. During the term of the ESP, DP&L will conduct an auction for 10% of its standard service offer load for the period of Jan. 1, 2014 to Dec. 31, 2014; 40% for the period of Jan. 1, 2015 to Dec. 31, 2015; and 70% for the period of Jan. 1, 2016 to Dec. 31, 2016. The ESP term will end on Dec. 31, 2016 where at that time the company is expected to have divested all of its generation assets. As was precedent in other ESP proceedings, the Commission also established a significantly excessive earning test threshold of 12% return on equity in order to further protect consumers.
