Commissioner Richard Glick Statement
November 19, 2020
Docket No. EL19-80-001
I dissented in part from the underlying order in this proceeding “because I do not believe that ITC Great Plains, LLC (ITC Great Plains) is sufficiently independent to justify an ROE adder.” Although I agreed with the Commission that ITC Great Plains’ then-existing ROE adder was unjust and unreasonable, I disagreed with the decision to nevertheless award ITC Great Plains a 25-basis-point ROE adder.
Today’s order concludes that the Commission correctly found that ITC Great Plain’ pre-existing ROE adder was unjust and unreasonable. I continue to support that conclusion and, therefore, join today’s order except insofar as it concludes that a 25-basis-point ROE adder is just and reasonable. For the reasons given in my dissent from the underlying order, I would instead eliminate ITC Great Plains’ ROE adder altogether.
