Description

Electric utility rates; curtailing peak power purchases. Directs the State Corporation Commission to promulgate regulations requiring electric utilities to offer electric service to nonresidential customers under a tariff that induces customers to curtail electricity usage during periods when the utility's costs of purchasing electric power rise above their norm as a result of heightened load demand and system congestion. The tariff shall ensure that the utility's costs savings are shared with customers who curtail demand for electric power through reduced rates or charges. Read the Bill »
