The PADEP filed a complaint in Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court against PPL Martins Creek and PPL Generation, alleging violations of various state laws and regulations and seeking penalties and injunctive relief.
They elaborate that, as shown in Exhibit C-1a of the Joint Application, PPL Generation, LLC (PPL Generation), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of PPL Energy Supply, is the direct parent of the following PPL Energy Supply Companies: LMBE, PPL Brunner Island, PPL Holtwood, PPL Martins Creek, PPL Montour, and PPL Susquehanna.
Applicants state that, as described below and as shown in Exhibit C-1a of the Joint Application, PPL Colstrip I, PPL Colstrip II, PPL Ironwood, and PPL Montana are indirect, wholly-owned subsidiaries of PPL Generation.
In light of significant planned environmental capital expenditures, PPL Generation conducted studies of depreciable lives of Montour Units 1 and 2 and Brunner Island Unit 3 during the first quarter of 2005.
Therefore, effective January 1, 2005, PPL Generation revised the useful lives of these fossil units.
