Nev. Admin. Code § 704.Sec. 4.4 - NEW

Current through March 28, 2022

1. A utility which transports natural gas to a transportation customer and the transportation customer shall jointly file with the Commission an application for approval of any discounted rate contract at least 60 days prior to the transportation customer taking service from the utility pursuant to the discounted rate contract.
2. The utility shall simultaneously serve the Regulatory Operations Staff and the Bureau of Consumer Protection with a copy of the application for approval of the discounted rate contract and all supporting documents required by regulation and the schedule approved by the Commission.
3. The Regulatory Operations Staff, the Bureau of Consumer Protection or any interested and affected person may, not later than 60 days after the application for approval of the discounted rate contract is filed with the Commission, file with the Commission a protest alleging that the contract fails to 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 discounted rate contract 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 amendments to the discounted rate contract to 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 discounted rate contract does not satisfy the requirements of NAC 704.516 to 704.528, inclusive, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, or the schedule.
4. Upon receipt of a properly filed and timely protest, the Commission may, not later than 120 days after the filing of the application for approval of the discounted rate contract with the Commission, hold a hearing to determine whether the protest is valid and whether the contract complies with NAC 704.516 to 704.528, and sections 2 to 5, inclusive, and the schedule approved by the Commission. Multiple protests regarding the same contract may be consolidated into a single hearing.
5. If no protest is filed, the discount contained in the discounted rate contract becomes effective as provided in the application for approval of the discounted rate contract.
6. If a protest is filed, the Commission will issue an order within 150 days of the filing of the application for approval of the discounted rate contract with the Commission approving or denying the discounted rate contract. The discounted rate contract shall not go into effect until the date the Commission issues an order approving the rates.
7. If a transportation customer seeks to renew a discounted rate contract which was approved pursuant to this section after the primary term of the contract has ended, the utility and transportation customer must jointly refile the discounted rate contract or file a new discounted rate contract pursuant to subsection 1.
