Does the AEPCO plan use the ECAR for recovery of the EPA capital compliance costs of approximately $30 million? Will this include only carrying costs or capital or a combination? Over what time period will AEPCO recover the costs and over what time period will AEPCO finance the costs? If AEPCO plans to charge carrying costs how would this be accomplished under the current Plan of Administration?

The possible plan that AEPCO discussed during the financial forecast presentation to the Board of Directors involved the recovery of MATS mercury control chemical costs. AEPCO has not yet developed an ECS Plan which may include the recovery of environmental capital carrying costs.
