Final Order Entered: 1. LG&E's proposal to modify the GAIF component of the PBR mechanism by adding NYMEX as a benchmark is denied. 2. LG&E's proposed modification to the gas cost sharing calculation is denied. 3. The current gas cost sharing calculation shall be modified as required herein, so that LG&E receives 30.0 percent of variances from 0 to 4.6 percent, with sharing thereafter allocated 50/50 between LG&E and its customers. 4. The DAI benchmark calculation shall be modified as required herein. 5. The PBR tariff text changes proposed by LG&E that are not related to the addition of the NYMEX or changes to the sharing mechanism are approved. 6. LG&E's current PBR mechanism, with the modifications approved herein, is extended beginning November 1, 2020, through March 31, 2021. 7. No later than January 31, 2021, LG&E shall file an evaluation report on the most current results of the PBR available at the time of filing. This report shall be considered in a proceeding which will be established to continue, modify or terminate the PBR mechanism. LG&E shall also file with that report any testimony and supporting documentation that it would propose to be considered, in addition to the record of this case, to assist the Commission in determining whether gas cost PBR should be continued for Kentucky LDCs, or whether it should be modified or terminated.
