Rule 3.300 Disconnection of Residential Gas, Electric, and Water Service.

Vermont Proposed Rule: 24P016

AGENCY: Public Utility Commission

CONCISE SUMMARY: The proposed amendments bring the Public Utility Commission's disconnection rules into alignment with Act 47 to allow for remote disconnections and require utilities to contact owners of rental properties when conducting a disconnection. Disconnections governed by this rule relate to the non-voluntary termination of utility service because of delinquency or non-payment. The rule amendments also modernize the disconnection notification process by allowing utilities to contact affected customers with SMS text messages and emails instead of only telephone calls.
