1.    EL05-004 In the Matter of the Joint Request for an Electric Service Rights Exception between Southeastern Electric Cooperative, Inc. and MidAmerican Energy Company. (Staff Analyst: Michele Farris, Staff Attorney: Karen Cremer)

On February 28, 2005, Southeastern Electric Cooperative, Inc. (SEC) filed a petition for a service rights exception for Commission approval. A SEC customer has requested three-phase electric service for irrigating approximately 65 acres of land located in the NW 1/4 of Section 24, Range 48 West, Township 96 North in Lincoln County, South Dakota. In order for SEC to provide service it would require a line extension of over three miles with a sizeable aid to construction for a seasonal load. Since SEC is not able to provide three-phase electric service to this site without a sizeable aid to construction SEC is willing to allow MidAmerican Energy to provide electric service to this site.

TODAY, shall the Commission Grant the Service Rights Exception?
