Project #41121

Rulemaking Proceeding to Amend PUC Subst. R. §25.214, Relating to Terms and Conditions of Retail Delivery Service Provided by Investor Owned Transmission and Distribution Utilities (TDUs) and Pro-Forma Retail Delivery Tariff


This rulemaking project amends the Pro-Forma Retail Delivery Tariff (Retail Tariff) attached as Figure (d) in P.U.C. Subst. R. 25.214 to clarify the terms and conditions and further standardize services provided by all TDUs to the retail market. The amendment includes but is not limited to modifications that refine the definitions, clarify the requirements for market notices, reduce the time to repair security lighting, require TDUs to provide interval data from standard meters on a daily basis and timely replacement of interval data when corrected or revised interval data is available, and improve the organization and layout of Chapter 6. The requirements for non-standard and standard metering service are separated in Chapter 6 as well. Improvements are made to the Retail Tariff by extending the timelines for discretionary services provided to premises with a standard meter in Section 6.1.2. The amendment also conforms the language in other Sections to be consistent with the comprehensive changes in Chapter 6. The amendment includes grammatical and layout changes.
