 (a)  Investigations. A public utility shall make a full and prompt investigation of service complaints made to it through the Commission by its customers or third parties. Upon receiving a service complaint from a customer of a utility, the Commission will transmit a summary of the service complaint to the utility. If a service complaint is resolved, the utility may terminate the investigation by submitting or transmitting a copy of the service order which identified the action taken by the utility to resolve the service complaint. When complaints are referred to the public utility through the Commission, the public utility and the Commission shall work to process and resolve all complaints.

 (b)  Records of complaints. A public utility shall preserve written or recorded service complaints showing the name and address of the subscriber or complainant, the date and character of the complaint, the action taken and the date of final disposition. Records of complaints shall be kept in accordance with §  64.192 (relating to record maintenance).

 (c)  Commission review. If a customer or applicant expresses dissatisfaction with the utility company’s decision or explanation, the utility shall inform the customer or applicant of the right to have the problem considered and reviewed by the Commission and shall provide the name, address and telephone number of the appropriate Commission Bureau. This subsection shall be read in conjunction with § §  64.141—64.182 when applicable to residential utility service.
