Workshops in Lewiston, Coeur d’Alene cancelled
The Idaho Public Utilities Commission is vacating two workshops that staff members from the commission were intending to hold in Lewiston on Feb. 5 and in Coeur d’Alene on Feb. 6.
The workshops were to deal with Avista Utilities’ proposed pilot program that would allow the utility to disconnect and reconnect power to customers from a remote location. Customer groups filing comments in the case requested the workshops be cancelled to allow more time for Avista and the customer groups to work out issues with the hope of presenting a plan to the commission that is agreeable to all parties.
The customer groups involved in the case are the Community Action Partnership of Idaho and AARP Idaho.
Announcements of possible future workshops or a written comment procedure will be made later as events warrant.
