Michigan Public Service Commission Issues Order in the Matter of the Application of Michigan Gas Utilities Corporation

Michigan Public Service Commission issued order in the matter of the application of Michigan Gas Utilities Corporation. On March 11, 2015, Michigan Gas Utilities Corporation (MGUC) filed its application, with supporting testimony and exhibits, requesting authority to reconcile its energy optimization (EO) plan revenues and costs for the 12-month period ended December 31, 2014. MGUC also requested approval of revised EO surcharges. On June 17, 2015, a prehearing conference was held before Administrative Law Judge Suzanne D. Sonneborn. The Commission Staff and MGUC participated in the proceedings. Subsequently, the parties submitted a settlement agreement resolving all issues in the case. According to the terms of the settlement agreement the parties agreed that the payment of $2,491,144 to the independent energy optimization program administrator satisfied the requirements of MCL 460.1091 and that the proposed reconciliation of 2014 EO revenues and costs should be approved. The parties further agreed that the net overrecovery of $155,581, including interest through December 31, 2014, and the prior period rolled-in underrecovery for 2013, should be reflected as the beginning balance for MGUC's 2015 EO plan reconciliation. Finally, the parties agree that the EO surcharges shown in Attachment 1 to the settlement agreement should be approved for bills rendered on and after August 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016.

The Michigan Public Service Commission Approves Settlement Agreement Authorizing Michigan Gas Utilities Corporation to Increase Natural Gas Rates

The Michigan Public Service Commission approved a settlement agreement authorizing Michigan Gas Utilities Corporation to increase its natural gas rates by $4,499,999, effective January 1, 2014. Residential customers using 100 ccf of natural gas a month will see an increase of 96 cents on their monthly bill. Michigan Gas Utilities Corporation on June 7 filed an application requesting a $8,036,820 rate increase. The final amount approved ($4,499,999) is 44% below what the utility requested and represents an increase of 3.5% over the rates set in its last natural gas rate case (case no. U-15990). Under the terms of the settlement, the rate increase reflects an authorized return on common equity of 10.25%, resulting in an overall rate of return of 6.1484%. The uncollectible expense tracking mechanism terminates with the close of business of the December billing month. The existing revenue decoupling mechanism (RDM) terminates on Dec. 31, and a new RDM will be implemented on Jan. 1, 2015. The utility will make capital expenditures that will reduce its overall system risk. This includes replacing the remaining 35 miles of bare steel main at a rate of at least four miles per year, beginning 2013, until all of the utility's bare steel main is replaced. The utility and the MPSC staff participated in the settlement.
