The Electric Infrastructure Program allows electric utilities to recover costs incurred to construct, operate, and maintain transmission lines and associated substations installed to provide service to a business park when found eligible for a rate adjustment approved by the State Corporation Commission (SCC). The program allows for three sites in each utility’s certificated service territory.
