Request for Change in Rates


On January 29, 2021, the Commission issued Order No. 26,449 suspending Aquarion Water Company of New Hampshire, Inc.’s (Aquarion) proposed tariff for temporary and permanent rate increases pending further investigation. This supplemental order of notice notifies the parties and public that the proceeding will now be in person.

The Commission will be conducting any hearings scheduled in this matter in person. Upon request, the Commission will consider using a hybrid format utilizing a Webex videoconferencing platform to permit remote participation if the Commission has determined that there is good reason to do so, such as a party’s or witness’s illness, or to reduce the cost of witness travel. Any party requesting a hybrid hearing format to accommodate those who will be participating remotely should file a written request with the Commission’s Clerk’s Office no later than fifteen (15) days prior to the hearing date. If the Commission determines that a hybrid approach will be used, then individuals in the Commission’s hearing room, including the Commissioners, will be broadcast on a web-enabled platform, and a remote hearing link will be posted on the website.

Based upon the foregoing, it is hereby

ORDERED, that the Commission will hold a hearing in this matter at its offices located at 21 S. Fruit St., Suite 10, Concord, New Hampshire, on May 18, 2022, at 9:00 a.m.; and it is

FURTHER ORDERED, that pursuant to N.H. Admin. R., Puc 203.12, Aquarion shall notify all persons desiring to be heard at the May 18, 2022 hearing by publishing a copy of this supplemental order of notice on its website no later than two business days after the date of issue, such publication to be documented by affidavit filed with the Commission on or before January 10, 2022. In addition, the Clerk shall publish this order of notice on the Commission’s website no later than two business days after the date of issue.

So ordered, this twenty-third day of December, 2021.
