Eversource Energy submitted a request to the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) for pre-approval to develop, construct, own, and operate 62 MW of solar PV capacity on company-owned sites. Eversource’s Petition also included a request for approval of a new Solar Expansion Cost Recovery Mechanism, a surcharge for recovering the incremental revenue requirement associated with the proposed solar program. The Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (Attorney General), as part of her duties as public advocate, intervened in the case on behalf of Massachusetts ratepayers. The Attorney General’s Office of Ratepayer Advocacy (AGO) wanted to hire expert consultants to assist the AGO during the proceedings of the Eversource docket.
On behalf of the AGO, DHInfrastructure staff reviewed the docket filing, drafted discovery, submitted written and oral testimony, and contributed to written briefs.
