The purposes of the amendments are to update the responsibilities of retail electric providers and vertically integrated electric utilities to provide notice when electric power to a non-submetered master metered multifamily property is disconnected for non-payment, and to establish a mechanism by which a municipality may provide the commission with the contact information of the municipality's authorized representative for such notice of service disconnection.
