MPUC Opens Inquiry on Utility Disconnections in Rental Units
June 29, 2010
Augusta, Maine—Today the Maine Public Utilities Commission voted unanimously to initiate an inquiry—at the Legislature’s direction--to obtain information about reasonable procedures to allow owners of rental units to receive notice of disconnection of electric, gas or water service to a tenant. As directed, the Commission will consult with representatives of electric and gas transmission and distribution (T&D) utilities and water utilities, representatives of owners of rental units, and of tenants, and other interested persons.
The Notice of Inquiry spells out the Commission’s current statutory and rule-based requirements for notice of utility disconnection. It also lays out the many questions to be answered in the course of the Inquiry. The Legislature directed the Commission to report back to the Legislature on these issues by January 15, 2011.
