Updated gas spending report and petition on long-term gas planning

OPC released an updated gas utility spending report that provides critical information on current and future business-as-usual spending to maintain and expand the gas delivery system—the pipes, concrete, computers, and other infrastructure that make up the local distribution system. The updated report provides important information about future gas bills in the absence of reversals in current practices. The new data show significantly increased spending plans based on utility proposals pending before the Public Service Commission. The data relied on is publicly available information from utility reports and regulatory filings. While actual utility rates depend on many decisions yet to be made, the report provides numerous data and general projections that reflect business continuing as usual, without significant deviations in State policy, customer behavior, or utility practices.

In February 2023, BGE filed an application for its second multi-year rate plan. The multi-year plan requests PSC approval of a series of rate increases over three years, from 2024-2026.
