E-9: Allco Renewable Energy Limited v. Massachusetts:

Electric Company, Docket No. EL12-12-000:

On November 30, 2011, Allco Renewable Energy Limited (Allco) filed a complaint against Massachusetts Electric Company d/b/a/ National Grid (National Grid) alleging that National Grid has failed to comply with certain requirements of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA). Allco complained that National Grid has refused to purchase the generation output from its qualifying facilities (QFs) pursuant to a legally enforceable obligation at National Grid’s long-term avoided cost rate as determined by the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities. The complaint seeks to require National Grid to enter into purchase agreements and pay a purchase rate equal to those minimum avoided costs. Agenda item E-9 may be an order on the complaint.
