Tarboro Solar LLC and Several Companies Files Complaint against Virginia Electric and Power Company
Jan 28 15
On December 30, 2014, Tarboro Solar LLC, Aulander Solar LLC, Woodland Solar LLC, Winton Solar LLC, Garysburg Solar LLC, Gaston Solar LLC, Seaboard Solar LLC, Jamesville Solar LLC, Weldon Solar LLC (Solar QFs) and Community Energy Solar, LLC (collectively, Complainants) filed a verified Complaint and Request for Declaratory Judgment (Complaint) against Virginia Electric and Power Company, d/b/a Dominion North Carolina Power (DNCP). In summary, Complainants allege that the Solar QFs are nine renewable energy projects located in DNCP's service territory and that each is entitled to sell power to DNCP under terms established pursuant to the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA). In addition, the Solar QFs allege that each of them has obtained a certificate of public convenience and necessity (CPCN) from the Commission authorizing construction of its facility, and that each of the Solar QF's has committed to sell its electric output to DNCP under DNCP's standard long-term power purchase agreement (PPA), DNCP Schedule 19-FP, for qualified facilities having a capacity of 5 MW or less. The Solar QFs further state that DNCP has refused to enter into a PPA with any of the Solar QFs, and instead has filed a petition with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), pursuant to PURPA Section 210(m), seeking to terminate its purchase obligations with respect to the Solar QFs. On January 5, 2015, the Commission issued an Order Serving Complaint and Requiring Response. The Order directed DNCP to either satisfy the demands of the Complainants and so advise the Commission, or to file a response to the Complaint on or before January 23, 2015. On January 23, 2015, DNCP filed a Response to the Complaint. In summary, DNCP admits that each of the Solar QFs has obtained a CPCN from the Commission, and that DNCP will have an obligation to enter into a PPA with each of the Solar QFs if FERC denies DNCP's petition for relief from that obligation under PURPA Section 210(m). In addition, DNCP maintains that FERC has the exclusive jurisdiction under PURPA to determine whether DNCP has demonstrated sufficient grounds to be relieved of its obligation under PURPA Section 210(m). Based on the Complaint and DNCP's Response, the Chairman finds good cause to direct that on or before February 16, 2015, the Complainants and DNCP shall file briefs supporting their positions with regard to the question of jurisdiction and the other issues presented by the Complainant's Complaint. In addition, the Complainants and DNCP may file reply briefs on or before March 9, 2015.
