N O T I C E
Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that on February 15, 2013, Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“ELL”), an electric public utility providing retail electric service to customers in forty-six (46) Parishes of the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC”), pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(3) of the Louisiana Constitution and Title 45, Section 1163.1 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, its Application for Authority to Change Rates, Approval of Formula Rate Plan and for Related Relief. This filing, herein referred to as the “2013 Rate Case,” was prepared and filed in response to the decision of the LPSC issued during its Business & Executive Session held on November 9, 2011 and memorialized in LPSC Order No. U-31944-A. In response to that Commission decision, ELL has prepared and submitted an application for change in rates based on the test year period of July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012 and has also included a request for a specific Return on Equity, and requests for approval for a number of tariffs, cost recovery schedules and riders. In addition, as was required by the Commission, ELL has included a class cost of service in its rate case filing; however, this study is being provided as information to the Commission and has not been used in the calculation of typical bills. The 2013 Rate Case also includes, among other items, pro forma adjustments to reflect capital additions to rate base and other known and measurable changes through December 31, 2013. In addition, the 2013 Rate Case includes pro forma adjustments necessary to establish the appropriate level of rates corresponding to alternative transmission-related ratemaking proposals, as follows: (i) as its primary case (the “MISO/ITC Scenario”), ELL has assumed both the consummation of its pending transaction with ITC Holdings Corp. (“ITC”) and the transfer of functional control of ELL's transmission assets to the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator, Inc. (“MISO”) Regional Transmission Organization and, in the alternative, (ii) the transfer of functional control of ELL's transmission assets to MISO without the consummation of the ITC Transaction (in the event that necessary regulatory approvals for the ITC Transaction are not received or that rates in this case are set before the transaction is consummated)(the “MISO-Only Scenario). Additionally, the Company is requesting in both its primary and alternative scenarios, authorization to implement a Formula Rate Plan for reestablishing rates on an annual basis. In the MISO/ITC Scenario, ELL has requested a rate increase of $168,125,165. This will have the following effect on typical monthly customer bills: an annualized typical monthly bill for Residential Service for 1,000 kWh would increase $7.56 from $98.11 to $105.66. An annualized typical monthly bill for Small General Service for 12,500 kWh would increase $76.81 from $1,360.67 to $1,437.48. A typical monthly bill for Large General Service for 1,000 kW and 500,000 kWh would increase $1,918.13 from $37,781.42 to $39,699.55. In the MISO-Only Scenario, ELL has requested a rate increase of $144,013,831. This will have the following effect on typical monthly customer bills: an annualized monthly bill for Residential Service for 1,000 kWh would increase $6.80 from $98.11 to $104.91. An annualized typical monthly bill for Small General Service for 12,500 kWh would increase $86.72 from $1,360.67 to $1,447.39. A monthly bill for Large General Service for 1,000 kW and 500,000 kWh would increase $2,028.35 from $37,781.42 to $39,809.77. For questions regarding ELL's filing please call the LPSC toll free at (800) 256-2397.
