Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 50 . Telecommunications
Section 780. Sales

3 AAC 50.780. Sales

(a) An electric utility shall provide service to a qualifying facility including, but not limited to, supplementary power, back-up power, maintenance power, and interruptible power.

(b) Notwithstanding (a) of this section, an electric utility is not obligated to provide supplementary power, back-up power, maintenance power, and interruptible power to a qualifying facility upon a showing to and determination by the commission, after reasonable notice and an opportunity for public comment, that compliance with that requirement will either impair the electric utility's ability to give adequate service to its customers or impose an undue burden on the electric utility.

(c) Rates for sales must be just and reasonable and in the public interest and must not discriminate against the other consumers of the utility or against a qualifying facility in comparison to rates for sales to other customers of the electric utility with similar load or other cost-related characteristics.

(d) An electric utility shall submit to the commission the information necessary to support the methodology and calculations used in developing rates for sales of electric power to a qualifying facility in conformance with applicable commission regulations.

(e) Rates for sales of back-up power and maintenance power

(1) must not be based upon an assumption that forced outages or other reductions in electric output by all qualifying facilities on an electric utility's system will occur simultaneously, or during the system peak, or both, unless the assumption is supported by factual data; and

(2) must take into account the extent to which scheduled outages of the qualifying facilities can be usefully coordinated with the scheduled outages of the electric utility's facilities.

(f) During any system emergency, an electric utility may discontinue sales to a qualifying facility, provided that the discontinuance is on a nondiscriminatory basis.
