STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA UTILITIES COMMISSION RALEIGH DOCKET NO. E-7, SUB 1164 BEFORE THE NORTH CAROLINA UTILITIES COMMISSION In the Matter of Application of Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC, for Approval of Demand-Side Management and Energy Efficiency Cost Recovery Rider Pursuant to G.S. 62-133.9 and Commission Rule R8-69 PUBLIC NOTICE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the North Carolina Utilities Commission has scheduled a public hearing in the annual demand-side management (DSM) and energy efficiency (EE) cost recovery proceeding for Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (DEC). The public hearing has been scheduled to begin immediately following the public hearing in Docket No. E-7, Sub 1163, which is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, in Commission Hearing Room 2115, Dobbs Building, 430 North Salisbury Street, Raleigh, North Carolina. This proceeding is being held pursuant to the provisions of G.S. 62-133.9 and Commission Rule R8-69, and for the purpose of determining whether an increment or decrement rider is required to allow DEC to recover all reasonable and prudent costs incurred for adoption and implementation of new DSM and new EE measures and appropriate incentives. Public witness testimony will be received in accordance with Commission Rule R1-21(g). On March 7, 2018, DEC filed its application and testimony for approval of DSM/EE cost recovery pursuant to G.S. 62-133.9 and Rule R8-69. By its application, DEC requests a total annual revenue requirement of approximately $264.5 million for inclusion in the DSM/EE rider authorized by the statute and Commission Rule. The proposed DSM/EE cost recovery rider would be effective for service rendered on and after January 1, 2019. The request, including the regulatory fee, would result in a decrease of 0.0209 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for residential customers, and thus a decrease of about 21 cents in the monthly bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kWh of electricity. The effect of the request on current non-residential customers would depend upon each customer's particular participation in DEC's DSM or EE programs. However, the rates of non-residential customers who have participated in all of DEC's DSM and EE programs since 2009 would increase by 0.2366 cents per kWh. Non-residential customers participating in DEC's DSM programs beginning in 2019 would pay DSM/EE rider charges of 0.0910 cents per kWh, and non-residential customers participating in DEC's EE programs beginning in 2019 would pay DSM/EE rider charges of 0.3283 cents per kWh. Non-residential customers may obtain detailed information about the rider increases or decreases applicable to their particular circumstances by contacting their DEC account representatives directly or DEC's Customer Service number at 1-800-777-9898. Industrial and large commercial customers that have opted out of and never participated in DEC's DSM and EE programs pursuant to G.S. 62-133.9 are not subject to the DSM/EE rider. In addition, further information may be obtained from the Office of the Chief Clerk, North Carolina Utilities Commission, Dobbs Building, 430 North Salisbury Street, Raleigh, North Carolina, where a copy of DEC's application is available for review by the public, and on the Commission's website at www.ncuc.net.
