According to a Notice issued by the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) on January 30, 2017, parties who desire to participate in the evidentiary phase of the D.P.U. 17-05 proceeding, which will review Eversource’s recently-filed petition to increase its rates, have until February 24, 2017 to file a written petition for leave to intervene in the case. See our recent blog post for a summary of some of the key components of the company’s filing.
The DPU will hold a procedural conference on the matter on March 2, 2017, and it has scheduled ten public hearings to receive comments on Eversource’s petition. The public hearings will take place between March 22, 2017 and April 26, 2017 in ten locations across the state. Those interested can also file written comments with the DPU by May 31, 2017.
