When a request for agency action is filed with the Commission and the party filing the request anticipates and represents in the request that the matter will be unopposed and uncontested, or when the Commission determines that the matter can reasonably be expected to be unopposed and uncontested the request may be adjudicated informally in accord with Section 63G-4-203 and the following:
The applicant shall file in support of the request sworn statements and documents as may be necessary to establish the pertinent facts of the matter. Thereupon, the Commission may, without hearing, enter its Report and Order in tentative form not to be effective for a minimum of 20 days after its issuance. Provided, however, that in cases where the applicant shall establish good cause, the Commission may waive the 20-day tentative period and issue a final order. Section 63G-4-301 provides for review of final agency orders. The order shall provide that any person may file a protest prior to its effective date and that if the Commission finds the protest to be meritorious, the effective date shall be suspended pending further proceedings. The order shall be served by the applicant upon all persons deemed by the Commission to have an interest or potential interest in the subject matter, and the Commission may require public notice in the form designated by the Commission.
Absent meritorious protest, the order shall automatically become effective without further action.
In cases where a public utility seeks an increase in rates, fees, or charges, informal summary procedure may be invoked if the applicant files in addition to supporting documentation a sworn statement from each person impacted by the increase that such person has no objection to the increase. This provision does not apply to energy-cost pass-through cases, which are provided for in Section 54-7-12(3)(d), nor does it apply to cases brought under Section 54-7-12(6).
