Request to Suspend Two Regulatory Proceedings

December 26, 2014 –  PSNH today asked state regulators to “Stay” two ongoing proceedings related to the company’s power generation facilities. The request to the N.H. Public Utilities Commission was made in order to provide  the company, other key parties and the Legislature an opportunity to work collaboratively to resolve the issues raised in the proceedings, or dockets. 

The two dockets include one on the recovery of the costs of an emission reduction ’scrubber’ at Merrimack Station in Bow; the second is the Public Utilities Commission’s examination of PSNH’s power generation fleet and its economic impact on the company’s customers. The company’s filing at the PUC is supported by State Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, and cites the company’s belief that a collaborative effort has the potential to provide significant rate, reliability, and public interest benefits.
