REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL NO. EE13-DEOAER-1
A MANAGEMENT/PERFORMANCE AND FINANCIAL AUDIT
OF THE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY RESOURCE RECOVERY RIDER (RIDER AER-R) OF
DUKE ENERGY OHIO, INC. UTILITY COMPANY
Ohio's current electric law, Senate Bill 221, initiated an alternative energy portfolio standard (AEPS) that requires electric distribution utilities and electric service companies to acquire specific minimum percentages of electricity from renewable and advanced energy resources. The renewable energy requirements, which include specific solar requirements, included annual compliance obligations beginning in 2009. By Opinion and Order issued on November 22, 2011, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (Commission) approved a stipulation and recommendation, in Case No. 11-3549-EL-SSO et al., that authorized the establishment of an Alternative Energy Recovery Rider (Rider AER-R) for Duke Energy Ohio, Inc. (Duke or Company), which allows Duke to recover costs associated with AEPS compliance. This audit will address the management performance and financial aspects of this recovery mechanism. The designated auditor will be expected to analyze, interpret, and make specific recommendations with respect to the structure, policies, and procedures of the Company's AEPS compliance activities.
Proposal responses must be sent to Paul Hutchinson in a sealed package by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 3, 2013.
