 11. Pursuant to the provisions of the applicable Commonwealth statutes and regulations, the Commission has jurisdiction over the subject matter of this complaint and the actions of Respondent related thereto.

Factual Background

Prior Case

 12. On October 27, 2014, I&E filed a Complaint against Respondent at Docket No. C-2014-2450011, alleging that Respondent violated Section 510(b) and (c) of the Public Utility Code, 66 Pa.C.S. § 510(b)—(c), by failing to file an assessment report for the 2012 calendar year and pay the Commission's assessments for the July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 and July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 Fiscal Years.

 13. On March 10, 2015, I&E filed a Motion for Default Judgment.

 14. On June 11, 2015, the Commission entered an Opinion and Order granting I&E's Motion for Default Judgment and sustaining, in part, and denying, in part, the Complaint.

 15. The Commission sustained I&E's requested relief pertaining to the payment of past due assessments and the civil penalty.

 16. The Commission denied I&E's requested relief related to the revocation of Respondent's Certificate of Public Convenience because there was no record developed in the proceeding to indicate whether any other entity could provide adequate service to Respondent's existing customers.

 17. Respondent has not paid the outstanding assessments or civil penalty as directed by the Commission in its Order entered on June 11, 2015.

2014-2015 Fiscal Year

 18. On or about February 7, 2014, the Commission mailed to Respondent an assessment report for Respondent to report its gross intrastate operating revenues for the 2013 calendar year.

 19. The assessment report was accompanied by a letter, which notified Respondent that the report was to be completed and returned to the Commission on or before March 31, 2014.

 20. Respondent failed to file an assessment report stating its 2013 calendar year revenues.

 21. On or about September 11, 2014, the Commission sent Respondent, through certified mail, an assessment invoice for the July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015 Fiscal Year (2014-2015 Fiscal Year) that was based, in part, on Respondent's estimated revenues for the 2013 calendar year. Respondent's assessment was $134.

 22. On September 19, 2014, Respondent signed a certified mail card, which indicated that it received an assessment invoice for the 2014-2015 Fiscal Year.

 23. Accompanying the assessment invoice was a notice that informed Respondent that it was obligated to pay the amount listed on the assessment invoice within thirty (30) days or file objections within fifteen (15) days.

 24. The Commission received no objections from Respondent to this assessment.

 25. Respondent failed to pay the amount of its 2014-2015 Fiscal Year assessment invoice.

 26. The total outstanding assessment balance for Respondent is $134.

Violations

COUNT 1

 27. That Respondent failed to report its gross intrastate operating revenues for the 2013 calendar year in that it did not file an assessment report for that year. If proven, this is a violation of Section 510(b) of the Public Utility Code, 66 Pa.C.S. § 510(b). I&E's proposed civil penalty for this violation is $1,500. This civil penalty is based, in part, on Respondent's history of non-compliance with the Public Utility Code involving a failure to file assessment reports, as set forth above.

COUNT 2

 28. That Respondent failed to satisfy its 2014-2015 Fiscal Year assessment in that it did not pay the amount due within thirty (30) days of receipt of the invoice. If proven, this is a violation of Section 510(c) of the Public Utility Code, 66 Pa.C.S. § 510(c). I&E's proposed civil penalty for this violation is 25% of the outstanding assessment balance or $50, whichever is greater. Therefore, I&E's proposed civil penalty for this violation is $50.

Wherefore, for all the foregoing reasons, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission's Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement respectfully requests that:

 (a) Respondent be ordered to pay a total of $1,684, which consists of its outstanding assessment balance of $134 and a total civil penalty of $1,550 for the above-described violations;

 (b) Respondent be directed to file assessment reports on a going-forward basis; and

 (c) If payment of the assessment and civil penalty is not made, the Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement requests that:

 (1) the Commission issue an Order to cancel the Certificate of Public Convenience issued to Respondent; and

 (2) this matter be referred to the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General for appropriate action.
