Duquesne Light Company's Default Service Plan

Capacity Proxy Price

Pursuant to Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (“PA PUC”) authorization, Duquesne Light’s SMA was amended to implement a Capacity Proxy Price (CPP) for Duquesne Light’s September 19, 2022 solicitation for fixed priced two-year default supply contracts for the period December 2022 through November 2024. As of the date of that solicitation, PJM had not yet conducted and posted its base residual auction (“BRA”) results to establish an actual initial capacity price for Energy Year 2024-2025. Consistent with the SMA as amended, as well as its treatment of past CPPs, DLC will begin the process of resettling the implementation of the CCP once the initial clearing from the Energy Year 2024-2025 base residual auction (“BRA”) has cleared and is posted. DLC will make additional adjustments as the incremental auctions are completed and the final price is cleared. This will continue until the existing contract impacted expires. Note that the SME amendments to implement the CPP did not impact the allocation of capacity volumetric risk. The Supplier continues to bear the risk associated with the capacity volatility submitted and settled with PJM.

The Proposed CPP for 2024/2025 Energy Delivery Year is $42.15/MW-day, please see the table below.

$34.20 $42.15
