Kalaeloa Water Company LLC seeks general rate increase – Docket No. 2019-0057

Posted on Sep 18, 2019 in Key Dockets

In a recent filing, Kalaeloa Water Company LLC (KWC) has asked the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to approve a rate increase and revised rules, regulations, and rates.

KWC seeks a net overall revenue increase of $485,107 for its water and wastewater operations during the July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 test year which represents an approximate 14.32 percent increase over the pro forma revenue amount of $3,388,497 at present rates during the test year.

KWC represents that its proposed net overall revenue increase would provide it with an opportunity to earn 7.75 percent overall rate of return on its system improvements and capital investments.

A public hearing was held on September 17 at Kapolei Middle School to receive in-person testimony from the general public regarding KWC’s application. Written statements can still be made via postal mail or email to the PUC. Visit the PUC’s website for more information: https://puc.hawaii.gov/contact/public-comments/.

KWC provides water and wastewater utility services to customers located within a 3,753 acre redevelopment district of Kalaeloa on the island of Oahu.
