Judge Dismisses Sunrise Energy's Claim on PPL Electric Utilities Corp

A federal judge in Pennsylvania on March 27 dismissed a solar developer's claim that PPL Corp. subsidiary PPL Electric Utilities Corp. is illegally blocking grid access and the progress of three planned solar projects in the state. Sunrise Energy LLC claimed in a lawsuit filed in May 2014 that PPL Electric violated the state's Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards Act by denying and deferring its applications to connect its solar panels to PPL's power grid. Sunrise Energy said that PPL Electric's 'denials and inaction' with respect to the net-metering applications for three planned solar projects are 'unlawful and unauthorized'. PPL, in its motion to dismiss filed in June 2014, said that Sunrise's real dispute is with regulations proposed by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission that allow net metering for customer-generators and not merchant generators. The program allows electric customers to use the power they generate through alternative energy sources to offset their electricity costs, as well as sell excess electricity to the public utility on an annual basis. PPL said Sunrise filed its applications for net metering after the PUC proposed its regulations. PPL Electric denied the first application, but then filed a petition asking the PUC for guidance.

PPL Electric Utilities Corporation and PPL Interstate Energy Company Announce Applications Associated with PPL Spinoff Transaction Approved by Pennsylvania PUC

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission approved applications filed by PPL Electric Utilities Corporation and PPL Interstate Energy Company (IEC) for certain approvals associated with the proposal by PPL Corporation to spin off its competitive energy supply business and combine it with generation assets owned by Riverstone Holdings LLC affiliate RJS Power Holdings LLC to form a new independent power producer named Talen Energy. PUC approval was requested for two reasons. PPL Electric Utilities, which is regulated by the PUC, sought review and approval of certain changes in property rights and contracts. In addition, IEC, which operates a Pennsylvania pipeline that transports oil or natural gas to two PPL power plants in Northampton County, requested approval of a change in its ownership under the proposed transaction. The PUC has regulatory authority over the IEC pipeline. The spinoff transaction involving PPL and RJS Power Holdings was previously approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission when the parties accepted FERC's market power mitigation requirements in January. The transaction also requires approval by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015.
