California Independent System Operator Corporation, California Electricity Oversight Board, Public Utilities Commission of the State of California, and San Diego Gas Electric Company, Complainants, v. Cabrillo Power I LLC, Respondent; Notice of Complaint

Take notice that on October 30, 2002, the California Independent System Operator Corporation (the ISO), the California Electricity Oversight Board, the Public Utilities Commission of the State of California and San Diego Gas Electric Company submitted a complaint pursuant to section 206 of the Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. 824e, against Cabrillo Power I LLC alleging that certain rates, referred to as the Fixed Option Payments, in the respective reliability must run (RMR) contracts between the ISO and respondent are unjust and unreasonable.

Complainants state that the allegations, facts, and relief requested in this proceeding are identical to those in Docket No. EL02-15-000, except that the complaint filed in that Docket did not include Encina unit number 4, which the ISO had not designated as an RMR unit for 2002.
