ORDER PROVIDING OPPORTUNITY FOR FURTHER COMMENTS
On October 25, 2013, parties to this proceeding filed Reply Briefs and additional Proposed Findings in accordance with the schedule the Public Service Board (“Board”) adopted at the October 1, 2013, Status Conference. Under the schedule, the October 25 filing was intended to be the final filing before issuance of a Board Order ruling on the Second Amended Petition for a Certificate of Public Good (“CPG”) requested by Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, LLC, and Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (jointly, “Entergy VY”), unless the Board determined that further evidentiary hearings were necessary as a result of the Second Amended Petition. Several of the Reply Briefs and additional Proposed Findings, however, raised issues or contained recommendations that arose as a result of the Second Amended Petition and could not have been reasonably anticipated by other parties. For example, the Department now recommends that the Board issue a CPG that would expire on December 31, 2014, subject to several conditions.
Since parties have not had an opportunity to respond to some of the arguments and recommendations raised in the Reply Briefs and additional Proposed Findings, the Board has determined that it would be useful to provide parties with an opportunity to submit further comments. Such comments must be filed by November 8, 2013. Comments are limited to responding to those elements of the Reply Briefs that contain new arguments and recommendations.
Dated at Montpelier, Vermont, this 30th day of October , 2013.
