This step will be taken by the utility when its fuel supplies are decreasing and the remaining fuel supplies are sufficient in its opinion for not more than approximately 50 days’ operation of its generation facilities.  Utility use of electric energy will be reduced in any way that will not jeopardize essential operations.  Fuel supply levels at the utility’s generating stations will become a determinant in economic dispatch decisions in the effort to maintain a reasonable supply of fuel at all generating stations.  The utility will partially or fully terminate the availability of electric energy under the surplus capacity provisions of rates for industrial and commercial power service.  This shall not apply to cooperative or municipal utilities with generation.
