Description

Utility rates; voluntary rate design schedules or riders. Requires the State Corporation Commission (SCC) to enter its final order on certain petitions filed by an investor-owned electric utility within eight months of the filing of the petition. The measure applies to petitions seeking approval of a schedule or rider for a voluntary rate or rate design test or experiment. An existing exemption to the requirement that each public utility uniformly charge each of its customers using its service under like conditions allows a utility to implement special rates upon SCC approval of a petition for a voluntary rate or rate design test or experiment.
