§ 51.49  MANDATORY CURTAILMENT PROCEDURE.
   (A)   Except as provided by § 51.50, curtailment shall begin with Service Priority Class V and continue as necessary through Service Priority Classes IV, III, II, and I as follows.
      (1)   Forty-day fuel supply.  When the utility’s fuel supply reaches 40 days, public notice shall be given by press release to:
         (a)   Service Priority Class V customers to fully (100%) curtail the service; however, any dispensable use shall be provided the minimum amount of electricity to protect and maintain the dispensable use facilities;
         (b)   To Service Priority Class IV to curtail service to a service level of not more than 50% of service obligation or base monthly consumption, whichever is applicable as determined by the utility;
         (c)   To Service Priority Class III to curtail service to a service level of not more than 75% of service obligation or base monthly consumption, whichever is applicable as determined by the utility; and
         (d)   To Service Priority Class II to curtail service to a service level of not more than 85% of service obligation or base monthly consumption, whichever is applicable as determined by the utility.
      (2)   Thirty-day fuel supply.  When the utility’s fuel supply reaches 30 days, public notice shall be given to:
         (a)   Service Priority Class IV to curtail service fully to a service level that is necessary to protect and maintain Service Priority Class IV facilities;
         (b)   To Service Priority Class III to curtail service to a service level of not more than 50% of service obligation or base monthly consumption, whichever is applicable as determined by the utility; and
         (c)   To Service Priority Class II to curtail service to a service level of not more than 75% of service obligation or base monthly consumption, whichever is applicable as determined by the utility.
      (3)   Further need for reduction.  After Service Priority Classes IV, III, and II are curtailed to a level of not more than indicated in division (A)(2) above of service obligation or base monthly consumption, Service Priority Classes IV through II, both inclusive, will be further curtailed by equal percentages until full (100%) curtailment occurs.  After Service Priority Classes IV, III and II are in full (100%) curtailment, curtailment shall commence in service Priority Class I as necessary.
      (4)   Short term service interruption.  In the event mandatory curtailment is imposed, as above provided, the utility in addition may employ, for not more than two hours’ duration at any one time, selective short term service interruptions by operation on a rotational basis of distribution switching equipment to effect the necessary curtailment in one or more Service Priority Classes.
   (B)   Except as provided in division (A)(1) above, the utility will give notice of curtailment in the most effective manner possible and as much in advance as possible with regard to the exigencies and the number of customers to be notified.  The curtailment shall be effective as of the time and date specified in the notice.
(1985 Code, § 6-10-5)
   (C)   Service shall be restored in the reverse order of the original curtailment.
