State Supreme Court Says PUC Erred In Finding "Overriding" Purpose Of Restructuring Law Was To Introduce Competition In Generation

Court Says "Most Compelling" Reason For Restructuring Was To "Reduce Costs"

Court Says PUC Erred In Elevating "Functional Separation" Of Generation Services From T&D

Court Ruling Implicates Default Service Procurement and Utility Long-Term Contracting, As Well As Future Utility Product Offerings

In a decision with potentially wide-ranging implications, the Supreme Court of New Hampshire has issued a decision finding that the PUC erred in concluding that the "overriding" purpose of that state's restructuring law was to introduce competition in generation, and ruling that, as a result, the PUC erred in elevating the "functional separation" of generation services from transmission and distribution above other statutory goals, such as price reductions, when the PUC denied an application from Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC and Public Service Company of New Hampshire d/b/a Eversource Energy (Eversource) for approval of a proposed contract for natural gas capacity, as well as a program to set parameters for the release of capacity and the sale of liquefied natural gas made available to electric generators, and/or an associated tariff
