15:22 EDTPPLPPL Corp. sale of hydroelectric facilities approved by Montana PSC
PPL Montana’s agreement to sell its hydroelectric facilities to NorthWestern Energy has received final approval from the Montana Public Service Commission, the company announced. The commission issued a final order Friday, Sept. 26, approving the transaction, which includes PPL Montana’s 11 hydroelectric power plants and Hebgen Lake reservoir. The PSC action follows prior approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as well as the necessary clearance from the antitrust enforcement agencies. Before the transaction can close, NorthWestern must file with FERC and obtain approval of certain financing transactions. FERC review of that filing is expected to take 30-60 days. The purchase price for the hydroelectric generating facilities is $900M in cash, subject to certain adjustments. PPL Corporation estimates its total net cash proceeds of the sale will be approximately $880M.
14:52 EDTFEFirstEnergy warns customers about Green Dot card payment scam
FirstEnergy Corp.'s (FE) utilities are warning customers about a scam involving a telephone caller posing as a utility company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot (GDOT) card. Scams involving callers asking for utility bill payment via Green Dot cards have been reported by customers in all of FirstEnergy's service areas from Ohio to New Jersey, which include: Ohio Edison, The Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison in Ohio; West Penn Power, Penn Power, Met-Ed and Penelec in Pennsylvania; Jersey Central Power & Light in New Jersey; Mon Power in West Virginia; and Potomac Edison in West Virginia and Maryland. FirstEnergy and its utilities do not require payment over the phone via specific means, including Green Dot cards. Moreover, FirstEnergy's utilities do not demand payment over the phone to avoid an impending termination of service. "If you receive a call demanding payment via a specific option, including a Green Dot card, it's a scam, and you should report this crime to your local authorities," said Ronald I. Green, vice president, Customer Service, FirstEnergy. "While we may phone a customer whose bill is in arrears to remind them a payment is due, we would explain how a payment can be made using established payment options."

11:14 EDTEIXEdison International unit signs amended settlement agreement
Edison International's subsidiary, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, The Utility Reform Network, the California Public Utilities Commission Office of Ratepayer Advocates, Friends of the Earth and the Coalition of California Utility Employees signed an amended Settlement Agreement in the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station Units 2 and 3 Order Instituting Investigation proceeding. The Amended Settlement Agreement reflects changes requested by the Assigned Commissioner and Administrative Judges’ Ruling that was issued on September 5. The changes adjust the customer/ratepayer portion of third party recoveries, address increased emissions, and increase oversight of revised rate calculations by the CPUC, among other matters. Provisions were added to the Amended Settlement Agreement regarding the funding of a Research, Development and Demonstration program at the University of California that is intended to develop technologies and methodologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, particularly at existing and future California power generating plants that will be replacing the power generated by the San Onofre plant that would total approximately $4M per year for five years for SCE's share.
