RPS Compliance Filing: Although Public Act 17-186 amended Connecticut General Statute 16-245a to eliminate Q5 (the extra CT Quarter) effective July 2017, PURA has not yet taken the steps to amend its regulations or current practices to incorporate the change from PA 17-186. Therefore, the 2018 RPS compliance filing is still due on October 15, 2019, and the Final Settlement Load will be used to determine its obligations. Companies are allowed to use Q1 2019 RECs for 2018 RPS compliance. PURA will issue a notice to all load serving entities, if and when any changes are made to its current practices, in order to allow adequate time for all to comply.
Effective January 1, 2017, out of state attorneys must follow pro hac vice procedures in order to appear before Connecticut administrative proceedings, including those at PURA. More information is available at www.ct.gov/pura/ProHacVice
