Or. Admin. R. 860-083-0200 - Electric Company Revenue Requirements

(1) For the purposes of division 083, annual revenue requirement is the amount produced from the following calculations:
(a) If the electric company is involved in a general rate proceeding using a test year that is reasonably representative of the compliance year and that results in the Commission issuing a final order no later than January 1 of the compliance year, annual revenue requirement is the total revenue the Commission authorizes an electric company the opportunity to recover in Oregon rates before the application of credits resulting from 16 U.S.C. sec. 839(c) (2008) (commonly known as the "Bonneville Power Administration Residential Exchange") adjusted for amounts and costs as needed in accordance with ORS 469A.100(3); or
(b) For a compliance year not involving a general rate proceeding under subsection (1)(a) of this rule, annual revenue requirement is the amount produced by the following calculation:
(A) Calculate the operating revenues related to net power costs, the renewable adjustment clause, updates for base rate changes relating to automatic adjustment clauses, and other adjustments authorized by the Commission subsequent to the most recent general rate proceeding and adjusted for electric company load changes as needed; and
(B) To the amount calculated under paragraph (1)(b)(A) of this rule, add the product of:
(i) The total operating revenues authorized in the most recent general rate proceeding, reduced by the amount of operating revenues related to energy efficiency programs, low income energy assistance, the incremental cost of compliance, unbundled renewable energy certificates, alternative compliance payments, and net power costs in the general rate proceeding, and increased by credits resulting from 16 U.S.C. sec. 839(c) (2008); and
(ii) The ratio of the compliance year forecasted load to the load from the most recent general rate proceeding; and
(C) In the sum calculated under subsection (1)(b) of this rule, adjust for the amounts and costs as needed in accordance with ORS 469A.100(3).
(2) For a compliance year under subsection (1)(b) of this rule, each electric company that is subject to a renewable portfolio standard in the following calendar year under ORS 469A.052 must file its proposed annual revenue requirement for the following compliance year on or before November 15, 2010, and annually thereafter.
(3) On or before December 1, 2010, and annually thereafter, each electric company must amend its filing made under section (2) of this rule for any updated renewable adjustment clause filing and retail electricity consumer loads that will be served through direct access in the compliance year.
(4) For a compliance year involving a general rate proceeding under subsection (1)(a) of this rule, the electric company must make a compliance filing by December 1 in the year preceding the compliance year or 14 days from the entered date of the Commission's final order in the general rate proceeding, whichever is later. The compliance filing must calculate the total revenue the Commission authorized the electric company the opportunity to recover in Oregon rates in the final rate proceeding order, adjusted for amounts and costs as needed under ORS 469A.100(3).
