Nev. Admin. Code § 704.Sec. 3-5 - NEW

Current through March 28, 2022

1. In the docket opened annually by the Commission pursuant to section 2 , a utility which supplies natural gas to an alternative fuel capable customer must file a memorandum at least 30 days prior to the customer taking service from the utility pursuant to a schedule approved by the Commission or before making any changes to rates pursuant to the schedule approved by the Commission. The utility shall simultaneously serve the Regulatory Operations Staff and the Bureau of Consumer Protection with the memorandum filed with the Commission and all supporting documents required by regulation and the schedule approved by the Commission.
2. The Regulatory Operations Staff, Bureau of Consumer Protection or any interested and affected person may, not later than 25 days after the memorandum is filed with the Commission pursuant to subsection 1, file with the Commission a protest alleging that the rates in the memorandum do not comply with NAC 704.516 to 704.528, inclusive, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, or the schedule approved by the Commission. The Commission will not consider protests that are untimely. A protest must include:
(a) A statement describing the manner in which the memorandum fails to comply with the requirements of NAC 704.516 to 704.528, inclusive, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, or the schedule;
(b) If applicable, any proposed changes to the memorandum which would bring it into compliance with NAC 704.516 to 704.528, inclusive, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, and the schedule; and
(c) Any other relevant material to support the protest that the memorandum does not satisfy the requirements of NAC 704.516 to 704.528, inclusive, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, or the schedule.
3. Upon receipt of a properly filed and timely protest, the Commission may, not later than 60 days after the filing of the memorandum with the Commission, hold a hearing to determine whether the protest is valid and whether the proposal in the memorandum complies with NAC 704.516 to 704.528, inclusive, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, and the schedule approved by the Commission. Multiple protests regarding the same memorandum may be consolidated into a single hearing.
4. If no protest is filed, any change to rates provided in the memorandum becomes effective as provided in the memorandum.
5. If a protest is filed, the Commission will issue an order approving or denying the memorandum within 120 days of the filing of the memorandum with the Commission. Any proposed change to the rate must not go into effect before the date the Commission issues an order approving the rates.
