ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Nevada Power Co. will be disconnecting residential customers who have past-due payments starting in the fall 2008. Rick Hackman, manager of the consumer complaint division of the Public Utilities Commission, relates that these payments continue to significantly increase in the summertime. A commission rule does not allow the electric utility to disconnect delinquent residential customers when it is predicted that the temperature will be higher than 105 degrees.
