TARIFF PROVISIONS THAT LIMIT THE LIABILITY OF UTILITIES FOR INJURY OR DAMAGE AS A RESULT OF NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL TORTS—STATEMENT OF POLICY


§ 69.87. Tariff provisions that limit the liability of utilities for injury or damage as a result of negligence or intentional torts—statement of policy.

 The Commission, after review of applicable State law, and on consideration of the various policy considerations relative to the inclusion in tariffs of provisions which limit the liability of utilities for injury or damages as a result of negligence or intentional torts, finds that State law permits utilities to limit their liability for interruption or cessation of service. If a utility seeks to place the language in its tariff, a tariff filing should be made under section 1308 of the code (relating to voluntary changes in rates), and should include a company-specific dollar amount for the proposed limitation and work papers to substantiate the dollar amount. A copy of the tariff filing should be served on the Office of Consumer Advocate and on the Office of Small Business Advocate.
