CONSUMER RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The Utah Public Service Commission has established rules about member-consumer/cooperative relationships. These rules cover payment of bills, late charges, security deposits, handling complaints, service shut-offs, and other matters. These rules assure consumers of certain rights and outline consumer responsibilities.
