To establish policy concerning the retention or retirement of idle services deemed to be no longer needed by the Cooperative.
A. Line Retention Fee.
B. Idle Services.
1.Any electric service that has been idle for more than one (1) year may be retired at the discretion of the Cooperative in accordance with the regular work order procedure.
2.If the member or land owner request that the idle service be retained, a monthly line retention fee shall be required. The fee shall coincide with the facility charge specified in the applicable rate schedule as determined by the Cooperative.
3.If the electric facilities are retired, the Cooperative’s line extension policy shall apply for any future requests for electric service at the same location.
4.If an idle service has not been retired and an applicant requests that the service be energized, the applicant shall pay any outstanding line retention fees.
The General Manager is responsible for administering this policy and for recommending to the Board any changes deemed desirable.
