Project #36131

Rulemaking Relating to Disconnection of Electric Service and Deferred Payment Plans

Summary

The purpose of this project is to modify eligibility requirements for deferred and level payment plans, protections for low-income customers and customers with medical conditions. Among other things, the rule will help certain eligible customers who may not meet the existing payment plan requirements avoid disconnections as a result of high bills that result from hot summers or unusually cold winters. See related: Project 37622.
