Disconnection Rules


Docket Number RU-00000A-19-0132


At its April 2021 Open Meeting, the Corporation Commission voted to advance a proposed package of disconnection rules to the formal rulemaking process. These rules, once finalized, will set guidelines for when regulated electric utilities are prohibited from shutting off a customer’s power for nonpayment during periods of extreme heat or extreme cold. As part of the formal rulemaking process, oral proceedings will be held. Comments received will be incorporated into the final Recommended Opinion and Order that will come before the Commission for a vote at a future Open Meeting.
