Language in the North Carolina Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard allows a utility to have incurred costs reviewed by the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) periodically and added to the rate base in a general rate case even if that facility is not yet complete. This language targets the construction of nuclear plants by establishing the NCUC’s ability to review and find prudent the activities associated with developing a nuclear plant, but not any specific costs of development.
