Notice is hereby given, pursuant to article IV, section 21 (D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that on December 7, 2018, CenterPoint Energy Arkla, a Division of CenterPoint Energy Resources Corp., (“CNP”), a natural gas public utility having facilities to permit the local distribution of natural gas to residential and commercial customers in the parishes listed below, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC” or “Commission”) its Supplemental Evaluation Report pursuant to its Gas Operation Rate Stabilization Plan (“RSP”) for the test year ended June 30, 2018 (“TY 2018”), in accordance with LPSC Orders No. U-27676 (Corrected) and U-32996 and LPSC General Order No. 11-30-2018 (R-34754). CNP's Supplemental Gas Operations RSP filing, if approved by the Commission as filed, will result in a rate increase of approximately $1.6 million annually inclusive of reductions due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”), effective December 26, 2018.
Affected Parishes: Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Claiborne, De Soto, Jackson, Lincoln, Ouachita, Union, and Webster
CNP's Supplemental RSP filing for the 2018 Test Year reflects an Earned Return on Equity (“EROE”) of 4.14% and pursuant to the RSP's cost of service sharing mechanism, the EROE requires a rate adjustment by CNP. It is estimated that the requested rate increase will have the following effect on average monthly bills: a Residential customer using 42 CCF will increase $0.81; a Small Commercial-Firm Service customer using 231 CCF will increase $4.46.
For questions and comments please call the LPSC toll free at (800) 256-2397. Additionally, the Company's Supplemental filing and its attachments may be viewed in the Records Division of the LPSC at the following address:
