Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 52 . Telecommunications
Section 400. Application, purpose, and waiver

3 AAC 52.400. Application, purpose, and waiver

(a) The provisions of 3 AAC 52.400 - 3 AAC 52.500 apply to all electric utilities subject to the regulatory jurisdiction of the commission and govern the furnishing of electric service and facilities to the public.

(b) The purpose of 3 AAC 52.400 - 3 AAC 52.500 is to establish certain minimum statewide standards which ensure that electric utilities will render safe, reliable, and prompt service to the public. Each electric utility must follow these standards and implement them with diligence and good faith to maintain the proper balance between economic effectiveness and the provision of safe, adequate service to the public.

(c) The standards of service, safety, and performance established in 3 AAC 52.400 - 3 AAC 52.500 are minimum levels of mandatory performance and service. A utility's failure to conform to these standards is a sufficient basis for issuance of a show cause order by the commission as to why civil penalties should not be invoked under AS 42.05.571 .

(d) For good cause shown, the commission will, in its discretion, waive all or any portion of the standards in 3 AAC 52.400 - 3 AAC 52.500 applicable to an individual electric utility, or establish interim standards for that utility.

(e) As provided for under 3 AAC 48.320, 3 AAC 48.370, and 3 AAC 48.380, each utility's tariff must be amended, as appropriate, to include, and conform the provisions of the tariff to, standards set out in 3 AAC 52.400 - 3 AAC 52.500.
