SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: (all summaries)

Electric utilities; costs of modifications to nuclear generation facilities. Authorizes an investor-owned electric utility to petition the State Corporation Commission for approval of a rate adjustment clause for recovery of the costs of a system or equipment upgrade, system or equipment replacement, or other cost reasonably appropriate to extend the combined operating license for, or the operating life of, nuclear generation facilities. The measure limits the scope of the requirement that a utility demonstrate that it has considered and weighed alternative options, including third-party market alternatives, in its selection process to certain new generation facilities. The measure provides that a utility's costs incurred in extending the combined operating license for, or the operating life of, a nuclear generation facility, which costs are prudently incurred prior to the Commission's entry of a final order on the petition, shall be deferred on the books and records of the utility until the later of the entry of a final order in the proceeding or until the implementation of any applicable approved rate adjustment clauses.
