This legislation permits the KCC to determine rate-making principles that will apply to a utility’s investment in generation or transmission before constructing a facility or entering into a contract for purchasing power. There is no restriction on the type or the size of electric generating unit for which rate-making principles can be set in advance. A petition for predetermining rate-making principles will include a description of the following: the utility’s conservation measures, demand-side management efforts, 10-year generation and load forecast, and all power supply alternatives considered. The KCC may review, but need not require, a competitive request for proposal process used by the utility. If the KCC fails to issue a determination within 180 days of the petition filing, the rate-making principles the utility proposed will be deemed to have been approved by the commission and shall be binding. If the project is built, once it is placed in service the rate-making principles apply to that generating facility in all subsequent rate cases.
