2015 Grid Modernization


The electric distribution companies (EDCs) filed their first GMPs with the Department in August 2015 in dockets D.P.U 15-120 through 15-122. Cape Light Compact held public information meetings in September and October of 2016 to inform the community about the proposals and to receive community input. As a full intervenor to the DPU proceeding, the Compact submitted information requests, testimony, and briefs to ensure that Cape and Vineyard residents and businesses would be able to benefit from grid modernization and that costs were appropriate and fairly allocated. The DPU issued an Order in that docket on May 10, 2018.
