1.     EL16-037     In the Matter of Commission Staff’s Request to Investigate Northern States Power Company dba Xcel Energy’s Proposed Fuel Clause Rider (Staff Analysts: Jon Thurber, Brittany Mehlhaff; Staff Attorney: Kristen Edwards)

On November 30, 2016, Northern States Power Company dba Xcel Energy (NSP) filed its monthly fuel clause rider (FCR), to be effective December 1, 2016. On November 30, 2016, Staff filed a Petition to suspend the rider for 180 days to allow adequate time for Staff to evaluate whether certain Purchase Power Agreements requested for cost recovery through the FCR are reasonable and cost effective. 

     TODAY, shall the Commission suspend NSP’s fuel clause rider for 180 days beyond November 30, 2016? OR, how shall the Commission proceed?
