Regulatory Commission of Alaska: Notice of Utility Tariff Filing (GVEA)

Notice of Utility Tariff Filing

The REGULATORY COMMISSION OF ALASKA (Commission) gives notice that Golden Valley Electric Association, Inc. (GVEA) filed TA302-13, proposing revisions to Rule 11 (Liability of Association). Within Rule 11, GVEA proposes adding a force majeure clause and new provisions establishing GVEA’s right to schedule outages in order to make system repairs, modifications, and improvements. In addition, GVEA proposes a new provision for unscheduled outages establishing GVEA’s right to limit service when the system experiences a serious shortage and it becomes necessary for GVEA to place a curtailment program in effect. GVEA also proposes re-writing existing provisions addressing irregularities or failure of electric service, member-owned equipment, and consequential damages.

Revisions to existing provisions include the addition of language under the section addressing member-owned equipment that provides “[i]t shall be the Member’s responsibility to ensure that the Member’s structures, equipment, wires, conduit, appliances, and devices conform to and are installed in compliance with this Tariff and with all applicable federal, state, and borough statutes, ordinances, and regulations.”

This notice does not contain all requested revisions and the Commission may approve a rate or classification that varies from those proposed.
