2. On April 17, 2023, RMP filed an Application requesting authority to revise rates pursuant to two different rate schedules. The Company proposes to increase its Tariff Schedule 95 Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) rates by approximately $50.3 million to recover deferred NPC. The Company also proposes to decrease its Tariff Schedule 93 REC and SO2 Revenue Adjustment Mechanism (RRA) rates by approximately $1.5 million to account for sales of RECs and SO2 emission allowances. The Company requests interim approval of the proposed rates effective for usage on and after July 1, 2022, subject to further review.

3. The following table summarizes the proposed price changes by tariff rate schedule. Within each rate schedule, the percentage change to individual customers may be higher or lower than the average due to rate design, customer load factors, and usage characteristics. The combined effect of the 2023 RRA and ECAM in this Application represents an overall proposed rate increase of approximately $48.8 million or approximately 7.4 percent.
