The administrator of any project utilizing fuel cells with an electricity purchase agreement entered into and approved by the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority pursuant to subsection (h) of section 16-244c with a generating capacity of not greater than five megawatts, to be sited within fifty feet of a natural gas transmission facility that operates at pressures in excess of one hundred fifty pounds, may submit a request to said authority for a modification to such purchase agreement that would permit the project to move to an alternative location and allow for an equitable adjustment in contract pricing to account for any change in the project attributable to the change in location. Said authority shall open a docket to review such modification request not later than thirty days after receipt of such request. Said authority may approve such modification request not later than one hundred twenty days after receipt of such request. Factors affecting such modification shall be limited to location, contract pricing and schedule attributable to the change in location. No existing electricity purchase agreement shall be cancelled or deemed in noncompliance by an electric distribution company until such modification is approved.
Terms Used In Connecticut General Statutes 16-244l
- Authority: means the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority and "department" means the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. See Connecticut General Statutes 16-1
- Contract: A legal written agreement that becomes binding when signed.
- distribution company: means any person providing electric transmission or distribution services within the state, but does not include: (A) A private power producer, as defined in section 16-243b. See Connecticut General Statutes 16-1
- Docket: A log containing brief entries of court proceedings.
- Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
