Amendments to Customer Protection Rules Relating to Advanced Meters
In an effort to more fully provide benefits and functionality of the advanced metering system (AMS) to customers, amendments to relevant customer protection rules will be pursued. One issue that will be proposed is expanding the days and hours that AMS service requests will be processed. Providing customers the option to switch retail electric providers within one business day will also be examined. Other issues that would require amendments to customer protection rules may also be considered.
