Notice is hereby given that on January 10, 2018, Kentucky Utilities Company (“KU”) have filed an application with the
Kentucky Public Service Commission (“Commission”), Frankfort, Kentucky, pursuant to KRS 278.020(1), 807 KAR
5:001 Sections 14 and 15, and 807 KAR 5:011 Section 6(2)(b) seeking an Order granting KU Certificates of Public
Convenience and Necessity (“CPCN”) for the full deployment of Advanced Metering Systems (“AMS”) across its Kentucky service territory and approving its proposed AMS Opt-Out Special Charges. In its application, KU will notify the
Commission that the changes to the Special Charges Standard Rate tariff sheets are proposed to become effective on
and after February 9, 2018; however, because KU anticipates the Commission will suspend the proposed changes in
the Special Charges tariffs to conduct an investigation of the proposed changes, KU will ask the Commission to
approve the proposed changes to be effective on June 1, 2018.
KU will propose a cost-based opt-out charge structure for customers who desire to opt out of AMS. The proposed
charges will be new and optional; customers who do not desire to opt out of AMS will not have to pay the charges. The
proposed opt-out charge structure will consist of a $72.71 opt-out set-up fee and a $32.45 recurring monthly fee.
