 Case Background

Utilities, Inc. of Florida (UIF or Utility) is a Class A utility providing water and wastewater service to twenty systems in the following counties:  Marion, Orange, Pasco, Pinellas, and Seminole.  (See Attachment A)  Of the twenty systems, eighteen are a part of this proceeding.  UIF is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Utilities, Inc. (UI).  The Utility’s last rate case was in 2009.[1]

By letter dated July 31, 2012, UIF requested test year approval in order to file an application for general rate relief for 4 of its counties.  The Utility requested that the application be processed using the Proposed Agency Action (PAA) procedure and requested interim rates. 

UIF’s requested test year for final and interim purposes is the historical year ended December 31, 2011.  On March 29, 2013, the Utility filed minimum filing requirements (MFRs) to justify its requested rate increase.  By letter dated April 26, 2013, UIF was notified that the MFRs were deficient.  UIF corrected the deficiencies through information submitted on May 29, 2013.  UIF did not request rate relief for its Marion County water and wastewater systems.  However, to ensure that there was no cross-subsidization between the systems and that Marion County was not earning above its last authorized rate of return, staff expanded its review, including the audit, to include Marion County.  Based on staff’s review, Marion County is not overearning and therefore, due to the Utility’s request, will not be part of this case.

On June 25, 2013, the Commission approved interim rates[2] designed to generate the following water and wastewater revenues:

The interim rates are subject to refund with interest, pending the conclusion of the rate case.

The Utility requested final rates designed to generate total annual water revenues of $2,735,513, an increase of $736,881 or 36.87 percent, and total annual wastewater revenues of $1,601,009, an increase of $258,703 or 19.27 percent.

Customer meetings were held August 7 and 8, 2013, in New Port Richey and Altamonte Springs, respectively.

On October 28, 2013, the Office of Public Counsel (OPC) filed a Notice of Intervention in this docket, and an order acknowledging intervention was issued on October 30, 2013.[5]  Prior to the Notice of Intervention, OPC submitted a letter and a CD dated October 25, 2013, composed of customer complaints and protests from the Utility’s Summertree customers.

The original five-month statutory deadline for the Commission to address the Utility’s requested final rates was October 29, 2013.  However, by letter dated June 19, 2013, UIF waived the statutory time frame by which the Commission was required to address the Utility’s final requested rates through November 14, 2013.[6]

At the November 14, 2013, Agenda Conference, the Commission voted on the proposed agency action (PAA) issues for UIF’s rate relief petition.  As a result of concerns raised by OPC regarding the Utility’s roll-forward adjustments, audit staff conducted further analytical reviews on UIF’s roll-forward adjustments and found errors which should be corrected.  Roll-forward adjustments are Utility adjustments in the MFRs that reflect the Commission Ordered Adjustments directing the Utility to correct its books and records.  The Utility does not make these adjustments directly to its books and records, but keeps them separately.  The roll-forward adjustments need to be reviewed and recalculated repeatedly for each rate case.  This results in recalculating Accumulated Depreciation and Accumulated Amortization of Contributions-In-Aid-of-Construction (CIAC) as well as reviewing any retirements every time the Utility files for a rate case.  In each subsequent rate case, reviewing this information becomes more and more voluminous and time consuming.  Staff has not issued the PAA order codifying the Commission’s November 14, 2013 vote because it would not capture the correct roll-forward information for all systems.  The PAA order will be issued as soon as possible after the January 7, 2014 vote, and it will incorporate the Commission’s decision on the roll-forward issues.

This recommendation addresses the correction of the Utility’s roll-forward adjustments and the appropriate disposition of any resulting interim refunds.  The Commission has jurisdiction pursuant to Sections 367.081 and 367.082, F.S.

 


Discussion of Issues

Issue 1

 Should the revenue requirements and resulting rates, approved by the Commission on November 14, 2013, be revised to correct errors related to the Utility's roll-forward adjustments?

Recommendation

 Yes.  The resulting revenue impacts for all systems for this case are reflected below:

The resulting water and wastewater rates from the corrected revenue requirements are shown on Schedule Nos. 4-A through 4-E.  (Dobiac, Lawson, T. Brown)

Staff Analysis:  Chapter 367, Florida Statutes, provides that the Commission has exclusive jurisdiction over the rates of each public utility and must upon request, or its own motion, fix rates that are just, reasonable, compensatory, and not unduly discriminatory.  It would not be appropriate to allow the Utility's ratepayers to pay for an inadvertent mistake made by the Commission by its vote at the November 14, 2013, Agenda Conference, in reliance upon mistaken information provided by the Utility and not initially detected in the staff audit.  The Commission has the authority to determine whether there are mistakes in its prior decisions, and has a duty to correct such errors.  See Sunshine Utilities v. FPSC, 577 So. 2d 663 (Fla. 1st DCA 1991) at 668, citing Reedy Creek Utilities v. Florida Public Service Commission, 418 So. 2d 249 (Fla. 1982) and  Richter v. Florida Power Corp., 366 So. 2d 798 (Fla. 3d DCA 1979).  Thus, staff recommends that the adjustments discussed below be incorporated in the initial issuance of a PAA order for this docket.

Orange County – Water

 

            In calculating four of its roll-forward adjustments, the Utility increased plant by a total of $113,795, which audit staff is removing to be consistent with the prior case.  Related accumulated depreciation and depreciation expense should be decreased by $86,264 and $5,368, respectively.

 

            When the Utility recorded a Commission ordered adjustment from Docket 060253-WS, it reduced CIAC instead of increasing it.  In Docket 090462-WS, the Utility had to make two roll-forward adjustments in the filing, which increased CIAC to correct the error and to make the proper adjustment.  In the current case, the Utility did not make the roll-forward adjustment correctly.  Only one adjustment to increase CIAC ended up in the filing.  Another adjustment to increase CIAC by $42,868 is required.  Audit staff has also made related adjustments to increase Accumulated Amortization of CIAC by $27,205 and to increase Amortization of CIAC by $3,966.

 

Pasco County – Wastewater

 

            In calculating one of its roll-forward adjustments, the Utility mistakenly used $31,587 for the book balance rather than the correct amount of $214,286, which results in an overstatement of plant by $182,699.  In addition, audit staff recalculated the roll-forward amount to be consistent with the prior order, which results in an increase to plant of $5,178.  Plant should be decreased by $177,521 ($182,699 - $5,178).  Related accumulated depreciation should be decreased by $89,947.  Depreciation expense was adjusted correctly.

 

            In calculating another one of its roll-forward adjustments, the Utility mistakenly used $37,801 for the book balance rather than the correct amount of $588,752, which results in an overstatement of plant by $550,952.  In addition, audit staff recalculated the roll-forward amount to be consistent with the prior order, which results in a decrease to plant of $44,674.  Plant should be decreased by $595,626 ($550,952 + $44,674).  Related accumulated depreciation and depreciation expense should be decreased by $243,625 and $1,603, respectively.

 

            In calculating another one of its roll-forward adjustments, the Utility increased plant by $120,891, which audit staff is removing to be consistent with the prior case.  Related accumulated depreciation and depreciation expense should be decreased by $168,235 and $6,740, respectively.

 

Seminole County – Wastewater

 

            In calculating one of its roll-forward adjustments, the Utility mistakenly used $35,012 for its book balance rather than the correct amount of $138,317, which results in an overstatement of plant by $103,305.  In addition, audit staff recalculated the roll-forward amount to be consistent with the prior order, which results in an increase to plant of $2,843.  Plant should be decreased by $100,462 ($103,305 - $2,843).  Related accumulated depreciation should be decreased by $70,778.  Depreciation expense was adjusted correctly.

 

            Audit staff made an adjustment to decrease Seminole County’s Wastewater CIAC balance by $269,264 to correct an adjustment, which the Utility had recorded on its books in the wrong CIAC subaccount.  The decrease of $269,264 to one CIAC subaccount should have been offset by an increase to the correct CIAC subaccount.  However, audit staff inadvertently included only the decrease to CIAC.

 

Conclusion

 

            The adjustments above significantly impact the revenue requirements for Orange County water, Pasco County wastewater, and Seminole County wastewater systems.  In addition, the adjustments have a fall-out effect on UIF’s overall cost of capital which affects the remaining systems in this case.[7]  Specifically, as  a result of the adjustments above, the appropriate weighted average cost of capital for all UIF systems for purposes of setting rates in this proceeding is 7.34 percent, as shown on Schedule No. 1-A.  Schedule Nos. 2-4 have been updated to account for the fall-out revisions associated with the corrections for errors related to the Utility's roll-forward adjustments.  The resulting revenue impacts for all systems for this case are reflected in the following table.

Issue 2

 Should the initial interim refund calculations be revised, and, if so, what is the amount of any refunds?

Recommendation

 Yes.   The appropriate refund amounts should be calculated by using the same data used to establish final rates, excluding rate case expense and other items not in effect during the interim period.  The revised revenue requirements for the interim collection period should be compared to the amount of interim revenues granted.  The revenue requirements granted in the Interim Order for the test year are less than the revised revenue requirements for the interim collection period for Pasco County water and Seminole County water and wastewater.  This results in no interim refunds for these systems.  The revenue requirement granted for Orange County water in the Interim Order for the test year is greater than the revised revenue requirement for the interim collection period, which results in a refund of 7.99 percent of water revenues collected under interim rates.  The refunds should be made with interest in accordance with Rule 25-30.360(4), F.A.C.  The Utility should be required to submit proper refund reports pursuant to Rule 25-30.360(7), F.A.C.  The Utility should treat any unclaimed refunds as CIAC pursuant to Rule 25-30.360(8), F.A.C.  Further, the corporate undertaking should be released upon staff’s verification that the required refunds have been made.  (T. Brown)

Staff Analysis

 By Order No. PSC-13-0332-PCO-WS (Interim Order), the Commission authorized the collection of interim water and wastewater rates, subject to refund, pursuant to Section 367.082, F.S.  UIF did not request rate relief for its Marion County water and wastewater systems.  The Utility did not request interim rates for its wastewater system in Pasco County.  In addition, no interim increase was applied to the Pinellas County water system.  Table 2-1 shows the Commission-approved interim revenue requirements.

            According to Section 367.082, F.S., any refund should be calculated to reduce the rate of return of the Utility during the pendency of the proceeding to the same level within the range of the newly authorized rate of return.  Adjustments made in the rate case test period that do not relate to the period interim rates are in effect should be removed.  Rate case expense is an example of an adjustment which is recovered only after final rates are established.

 

            In this proceeding, the test period for establishment of interim and final rates is the 12-month period ended December 31, 2011.  UIF’s approved interim rates did not include any provisions for pro forma operating expenses or plant.  The interim increase was designed to allow recovery of actual interest costs, and the lower limit of the last authorized range of return on equity.  To establish the proper refund amount, staff calculated revised interim revenue requirements utilizing the same data used to establish final rates.  Rate case expense was excluded because this item is prospective in nature and did not occur during the interim collection period. 

 

            Using the principles discussed above, the revenue requirements granted in the Interim Order for the test year are less than the revised revenue requirements for the interim collection period for Pasco County water and Seminole County water and wastewater.  This results in no interim refunds for these systems.   Table 2-2 shows the interim test year revenues and staff’s recalculated interim period revenues.

$869,128

 

However, the $132,969 revenue requirement granted for Orange County water in the Interim Order for the test year is greater than the revised revenue requirement for the interim collection period of $122,791  This results in a refund of 7.99 percent.  The Utility should be required to refund 7.99 percent of water revenues collected under interim rates.  The refund should be made with interest in accordance with Rule 25-30.360(4), F.A.C.  The Utility should be required to submit proper refund reports pursuant to Rule 25-30.360(7), F.A.C.  The Utility should treat any unclaimed refunds as CIAC pursuant to Rule 25-30.360(8), F.A.C.  Further, the corporate undertaking should be released upon staff’s verification that the required refunds have been made.


Issue 3

 Should this docket be closed?

Recommendation:  No. If no person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed agency action files a protest within 21 days of the issuance of the order, a consummating order should be issued.  The docket should remain open for staff’s verification that the revised tariff sheets and customer notices have been filed by the Utility and approved by staff, and that the interim refund for Orange County water has been completed and verified by staff.  Once these actions are complete, this docket should be closed administratively, and the corporate undertaking should be released.

  (Lawson, T. Brown)

Staff Analysis

 If no person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed agency action files a protest within 21 days of the issuance of the order, a consummating order should be issued.  The docket should remain open for staff’s verification that the revised tariff sheets and customer notices have been filed by the Utility and approved by staff, and that the interim refund for Orange County water has been completed and verified by staff.  Once these actions are complete, this docket should be closed administratively, and the corporate undertaking should be released.
