On April 8, 2009, the Company supplemented its application by filing direct testimony in support of its proposed Rider S application and further requesting a waiver of Rule 20 VAC 5-201-60 of the Commission's Rules Governing Utility Rate Applications and Annual Informational Filings (20 VAC 5-201-10 et seq.) ("Rate Case Rules")• By way of background, the VCHEC Project is a 585 MW (nominal) coal-fired generating plant that was approved by the Commission in Case No. PUE-2007-00066. In conjunction with its approval of the VCHEC Project, the Commission also approved Rider S so the Company could recover its costs associated with the development of the VCHEC Project, including projected construction work in progress and an allowance for funds used during construction, as directed by § 56-585.1 A 6 of the Code of Virginia ("Code").
