1.      EL09-007        In the Matter of the Filing for an Extension of an Electric Service Agreement for the Supply of Bulk Interruptible Power between Otter Tail Power Company and Valley Queen Cheese Factory, Inc. (Staff Analyst: Dave Jacobson, Staff Attorney: Karen Cremer)

            On June 1, 2009, Otter Tail Power Company (Otter Tail) filed an application requesting extension of an Electric Service Agreement (Contract with Deviations) with Valley Queen Cheese Factory, Inc. (Valley Queen) which was entered into pursuant to its Bulk Interruptible Service tariff. The prior Electric Service Agreement expired on May 31, 2009, and Otter Tail and Valley Queen are currently discussing contract renewal and other alternatives. Both Otter Tail and Valley Queen are requesting to extend the contract which expired May 31, 2009, until June 30, 2009, to allow time to reach a new agreement on the provision of service.

            TODAY, shall the Commission Grant the Extension of an Electric Service Agreement?
