Indiana Court of Appeals
Hamilton Southeastern Utilities, Inc. v. Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, et al.
Agency. Affirms the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission’s order on remand in which it disallowed both Hamilton Southeastern Utilities’ requested 3% increase in the hourly billing rate for its affiliate, Sanitary Management & Engineering Company Inc., and a 10% management fee for SAMCO. Finds the IURC sufficiently explained and supported its decision that HSE must comply with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners and acted within its statutory authority when it ordered HSE to provide evidence of SAMCO’s fully allocated cost. Also finds the IURC’s 2019 order was not an improper attempt to create an administrative agency rule regarding the application of NARUC guidelines.
