[Docket No. EL14-66-000]

E.ON Climate & Renewables North America LLC; Pioneer Trail Wind 
Farm, LLC; Settlers Trail Wind Farm, LLC v. Northern Indiana Public 
Service Company; Notice of Complaint

    Take notice that on June 10, 2014, pursuant to sections 206 and 306 
of the Federal Power Act, 16 USC 824e, 825e, and Rule 206 of the Rules 
of Practice and Procedure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 
(Commission), 18 CFR 385.206, E.ON Climate & Renewables North America 
LLC, Pioneer Trail Wind Farm, LLC, and Settlers Trail Wind Farm, LLC 
(Complainants) filed a complaint against Northern Indiana Public 
Service Company (NIPSCO). The Complainants allege that the 
``Multiplier'' provisions contained in two Transmission Upgrade 
Agreements (TUAs) between the Complainants and NIPSCO are unjust, 
unreasonable, and unduly discriminatory. The Complainants request that 
the Commission find that the Multiplier provision of the TUAs is unjust 
and unreasonable and unduly discriminatory, and that the Commission 
direct NIPSCO to remove the Multiplier from the TUAs at the earliest 
possible effective date. In the alternative, Complainants allege that 
the Commission should review the individual cost components comprising 
the Multiplier, including rate of return, depreciation expense, and 
operation and maintenance expense, and authorize NIPSCO to recover 
through the Multiplier only those costs that it is able to show that it 
actually incurs.
    The Complainants certify that copies of the complaint were served 
on the contacts for NIPSCO as listed on the Commission's list of 
Corporate Officials in accordance with Rule 206(c), 18 CFR 385.206(c).
    Any person desiring to intervene or to protest this filing must 
file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of 
Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211, 385.214). Protests will be 
considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to 
be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the 
proceeding. Any person wishing to become a party must file a notice of 
intervention or motion to intervene, as appropriate. The Respondent's 
answer and all interventions, or protests must be filed on or before 
the comment date. The Respondent's answer, motions to intervene, and 
protests must be served on the Complainants.
    The Commission encourages electronic submission of protests and 
interventions in lieu of paper using the ``eFiling'' link at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should submit an 
original and 5 copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC
