Energy and Clean Tech Alert: Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities to Investigate Revenue Decoupling and Alternative Rate Structures


The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities ("DPU" or "Department") has launched an important investigation to evaluate gas and electric utility revenue decoupling in Massachusetts. The DPU's kick-off order also seeks comments on a "straw proposal" under which utilities could recover revenues otherwise lost due to implementation of energy efficiency, demand reduction, and distributed resource programs.

Participants in the proceeding are invited to comment on the straw proposal generally and on other issues "related to the investigation" not otherwise addressed.

Please see this Mintz Levin Alert for provisions of the straw proposal, the date that comments are due and public hearings are expected.
