    Service - Administrative Law Judge Ruling

    Notice is hereby given that the Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) has completed a review of the response filed by Navigant Energy, LLC ("Applicant") on October 17, 2012 and hereby rules that the information described below shall be filed with the Chief Clerk of the Illinois Commerce Commission on or before November 1, 2012. The response to this ruling must include (1) the docket number, case caption, and an original signature, (2) a verification page, and (3) a certificate of service indicating that the response was served on all those on the service list. The response to this ruling must be actually received by the date indicated, regardless of whether the response is filed with the Chief Clerk as hardcopy or electronically through e-Docket. Applicant shall also electronically serve its response on the Administrative Law Judge (jalbers@icc.illinois.gov) by the date indicated.
    1) Applicant’s October 17, 2012 response to the October 1, 2012 ALJ ruling indicates that the discrepancy regarding the use of Elena Gallo’s name as its attorney in Docket No. 12-0427 “was a mere oversight in timing between filing the application and contacting Ms. Gallo.” How can the Commission be assured that similar “mere oversight[s] in timing” will not occur in Applicant’s dealings with customers? 2) Applicant’s October 17, 2012 response to the October 1, 2012 ALJ ruling indicates that Applicant has changed its name to “Navigate Power, LLC.” As such, Applicant must submit a copy of the file stamped paperwork from the Secretary of State’s office reflecting the Applicant’s new name.

    General Requirements -
    1) On August 21, 2012, the Commission entered an Order in Docket No. 12-0427 dismissing an earlier application filed by Applicant seeking the same relief. The Commission based the dismissal of Docket No. 12-0427 on significant irregularities concerning the individual Applicant named as its attorney in that docket. Applicant’s currently pending application identifies the same individual as its attorney. Please address in detail the irregularities discussed in the Order in Docket No. 12-0427. 2) Attachment A to the application identifies Mark Nakayama as a “managing partner” of Applicant. Please confirm that this designation means that Mr. Nakayama is an owner of Applicant, and not simply a hired consultant. Please also identify all those with an ownership interest in Applicant by name and title, if any. 3) Please indicate whether Applicant has any connection with Navigant Consulting, Inc., the global consulting firm. Managerial Requirements - 4) Global Energy Partners, LLC initiated Docket No. 10-0483 on August 2, 2010. Attachment B to the application in Docket No. 10-0483 contained Mr. Nakayama’s biography. Mr. Nakayama’s biography in Docket No. 10-0483 indicated that he was employed by US First Energy/Superior Power, Dallas, Texas for the period “December 2006-Present,” which means that he was employed by US First Energy/Superior Power until at least August of 2010. In Docket No. 12-0527, Attachment B to the application indicates that Mr. Nakayama was employed by US First Energy/Superior Power from “December 2006-July 2009.” Please explain this discrepancy. 5) Applicant initiated Docket No. 12-0427 on July 16, 2012. Attachment 2 to the application in Docket No. 12-0427 indicates that Mr. Nakayama was a “Partner and Director of Sales” with Global Energy Partners, LLC from “August 2009-Present,” which means that he was associated with Global Energy Partners, LLC until at least July of 2012. In Docket No. 12-0527, Attachment B to the application indicates that Mr. Nakayama was a “Managing Partner” with Global Energy Partners, LLC from “September 2009-May 2012.” Please explain this discrepancy. 6) Attachment 2 to the application in Docket No. 12-0427 indicates that Mr. Nakayama “continues to function as an energy consultant with JFN Consulting, Inc.,” but does not otherwise list that role or identify his responsibilities under that role as part of his experience. In Docket No. 12-0527, Attachment B contains no mention of JFN Consulting, Inc. Please explain this discrepancy.
    Technical Requirements -
    7) Section 454.70(a) of 83 Ill. Adm. Code 454 states, “[an] applicant shall be deemed to possess sufficient technical capabilities to provide agency, brokering or consulting services if the applicant can demonstrate that it has had experience in the electric industry of at least one year.” Although the information included in Attachment B to the application demonstrates that Mr. Nakayama has more than one year in the energy industry, it does not explicitly indicate that this experience is in the electric industry. Please clarify in which industry Mr. Nakayama gained his experience. Notice served electronically to parties.
