Title

Resolution - A Resolution of The City of Mansfield, Texas Finding That Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC’s Application for Approval to Amend its Distribution Cost Recovery Factor Pursuant to 16 Tex. Admin. Code § 25.243 to Increase Distribution Rates Within the City Should be Denied

Recommendation

Staff recommends that the Council adopt the resolution.

Description/History

On April 8, 2021, Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (“Oncor” or “Company”) filed an Application for Approval to Amend its Distribution Cost Recovery Factor (DCRF).  In the filing, the Company is seeking an increase in its total distribution revenue requirement by approximately $97,826,277.

 

The PUC created the DCRF to meet the requirements of Senate Bill 1693 of the 82nd Legislature in 2011. This law allows Oncor to file an abbreviated rate case annually to raise revenues to recover their investment in transmission infrastructure.  This will be Oncor’s fourth DCRF filling since 2011.

Justification

The Commission’s rules allow cities 60 days to act on this application.  That deadline is June 7, 2021.

 

The resolution authorizes the City to join with the Steering Committee of Cities Served by Oncor (“OCSC”) to evaluate the filing, determine whether the filing complies with the law, and, if lawful, to determine what further strategy, including settlement, to pursue.
