Nev. Admin. Code § 704.338 - Program for equalized billing for service

Current through March 28, 2022

1. Except as otherwise provided in this section, a utility shall offer a program of equalized billing to any customer whose utility service is connected at the time the request is made.
2. If a customer requests to enter into the program of equalized billing and the customer has an arrearage when the request is made, the customer may not enter into the program unless the customer:
(a) Pays at least 50 percent of the arrearage upon entering into the program; and
(b) Agrees to pay, in amounts that are apportioned over the first year of participation in the program, the remaining arrearage.
3. If a customer enters into the program of equalized billing, the equalized billing must be calculated by dividing the total amount of estimated bills for 1 year by the number of monthly payments for that year. The utility shall, at least once each year, adjust the monthly payments to conform to the actual bills.
4. A utility may not adjust the amount of an equalized bill because of a change in rates before the rates become effective.
5. If a customer fails to make two or more consecutive timely payments while participating in the program of equalized billing, the utility may, in addition to any other rights and remedies available to the utility, remove the customer from the program. If the utility removes the customer from the program, the customer may not enter into the program again without the approval of the utility.
