The first update titled “2018 PTTR _ Effective Template” will go into effect on January 1, 2018 if FERC takes no action on the pending case prior to PJM billing for January 2018. (The second update is discussed below.) PJM posted the ATSI update to their formula rate on October 17, 2017 which will be effective January 1, 2018. The below table includes these posted rates.

On October 13, 2017, MAIT filed a settlement agreement along with an explanatory letter in FERC Docket No. ER17-211-003. This settlement is intended to resolve all issues set for hearing and it is possible FERC may act on this settlement without having a hearing. Until FERC makes a decision in ER17-211-003, PJM will continue to create invoices using the NITS rate that went into effect on July 1, 2017 until the January 2018 invoice when they will utilize the rate shown in the table above.

Also on October 13, 2017, PJM posted a second MAIT update to MAIT’s Formula Rate for 2018 on its website http://www.pjm.com/markets-and-operations/billing-settlements-and-credit/formula-rates.aspx. This second update is reflective of the modifications set forth in the settlement agreement. The second update titled “2018 PTTR _ Settlement Template” will go into effect on the later of January 1, 2018 or the date FERC approves the settlement agreement as filed. The below table reflects rates that would become effective on either January 1, 2018 or on such date that FERC approves the settlement agreement as filed.
