The case at the PA PUC (Sept. 9, 2021)
Concerning the case at the PA Public Utility Commission, nothing is as certain as it should be at this time. Theoretically, the Evidentiary Hearings have concluded, and the Main Briefs and Reply Briefs have been written, and there is little left to consider except the Recommended Decision of the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), then the Decision of the full Commission, and then (I think) the Exceptions to be filed by the Active Parties. After that, come appeals. If the Commission agrees with the Marple Zoning Hearing Board, PECO will probably appeal; if the Commission agrees with PECO, it is hoped that Marple Township, in support of the Marple Zoning Hearing Board, will appeal.
That is the theoretical “upcoming events”. However, there may be some wrinkles in that timeline caused by problems with the court reporting service. It has been suggested that problems with the quality and the timely delivery of the transcripts of the Evidentiary Hearings may have an effect on that timeline, but there has been no confirmation of that possibility.
If you are interested in reviewing any of the public documents of the PUC hearing, here’s how to do that:
