The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) has launched a service to reduce costs and increase efficiency by offering electronic delivery of ACC notices to parties with cases before the commission.
Parties such as utilities now have the option of receiving all ACC docket filings via email instead of standard mail, helping the commission move to a paperless system.
“This will save a tremendous amount of time and money for ratepayers, parties that have business with the commission and the commission itself,” ACC Chairman Doug Little said. “The most recent changes providing for email delivery of documents are part of a continuing and much more comprehensive project to streamline filings, eliminate unnecessary paperwork and reduce the burden on those companies and individuals that have business with the commission. We expect to make great strides in continuing to reduce the paperwork burden at the commission over the next year.”
Utilities typically must submit 13 copies of all filings with the commission’s docket control; now smaller Class D & E companies only need to file a single copy.
