The standards set forth herein have been developed to provide consumers, the Louisiana Public Service Commission, and jurisdictional electric utilities with a uniform method of ensuring reliable electric service. The standards shall be applicable to the distribution systems of all electric utilities under the jurisdiction of the Louisiana Public Service Commission. The standards establish the reliability of service on an annual basis under all operating conditions except events that are beyond a utility’s control.
It is the responsibility of the utility to provide and maintain the resources necessary to meet the service levels set by the Commission. All jurisdictional utilities must maintain complete records of all sustained interruptions. It is the utility’s responsibility to maintain and compile the data necessary to compute the System Average Interruption Duration Index and the System Average Interruption Frequency Index.
