Finality of charges; small non-residential customers
Public Service (PBS) CHAPTER 48, ARTICLE 4
* § 66-w. Finality of charges; small non-residential customers.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law if a utility corporation or
municipality does not render a small non-residential customer for gas or
electric service, with the exception of a seasonal or short-term
customer as defined by rule of the commission, a monthly bill for gas
and/or electric services used by such customer during that monthly
period, or, in the case of bi-monthly meter reads, during that month and
the prior month, within three months from the end date of such monthly
billing period, then, such small non-residential customer shall not be
charged for such gas and electric services which were not billed to the
customer as provided herein, unless the failure of the corporation or
municipality to bill sooner was not due to the neglect of the
corporation or municipality or was due to the culpable conduct of the
customer. The commission shall promulgate regulations necessary to
effectuate the purposes of this section. For the purposes of this
section, "small non-residential customer" means non-residential electric
customers that are non-demand billed customers and non-residential gas
customers that use less than or equal to 750 dekatherms per year. Such
term shall not include street lighting accounts.
