PUE'2009-00016 On March 31,2009, Virginia Electric and Power Company ("Dominion Virginia Power" or "Company") filed with the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") its application, written testimony, and exhibits requesting to decrease its fuel factor from 3.893 cents per kilowatt-hour to 3.529 cents r kilowatt-hour, effective for usage on and after July 1, 2009. According to the Company's application, the proposed fuel factor will decrease the Company's fuel expense recovery by approximately $236.4 million below the 2008-2009 fuel recovery level. The proposed fuel factor, Fuel Charge RiderA, includes both a current period and a prior period factor. Fuel Charge Rider A's current pedod factor of 2.789 cents per kilowatt-hour is designed to recover the Company's estimated Virginia jurisdictional fuel expenses of approximately $1.8 billion for he period July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010. Fuel Charge Rider A's prior period factor has two components. Based on the Company's proposal, the first component of (.038) cent per kilowatt-hour is designed to refund the projected June 30, 2009 deferral balance credit of approximately $24.6 million over the same twelve-month period. The second component of .778 cent per kilowatt-hour is designed to recover approximately $505.3 million, which represents that part of the June 30, 2009 fuel deferral balance ("Deferral Portion") that is eligible for recovery during the twelve-month penod July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010. The Company represents that this amount ccnforms to the limitation found in 56-249.6 C of the Code of Virginia ("Code"), which requires that the fuel factor rate associated with the recovery of the Deferral Portion shall not increase total residential customer rates by more than 4% over the level of such total rates in existence on June 30, 2009. Pursuant to 56-249.6 of the Code, the Commission has scheduled a public hearing to commence at 10:0Oa.m. on July 16, 2009, in the Commission's Second F oor Courtroom, Tyler Building 1300 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia, for the purpose of receiving comments from members of the public and evidence related to the establishment of Dominion Virginia Powers fuel factor.
