ELECTRIC SERVICE OFFERS. Maine proposed rules for "stan-

dard offer" electric service to comply with the state's new electric restructuring law, which promises electric supply choice for all retail customers by March 1, 2000. The rules set out a bidding process to select suppliers and govern terms and conditions of service, which the PUC said should remain similar to electric service now available from utilities. Docket No. 97-739, Sept. 30, 1997 (Me.P.U.C.).

APPLIANCE REFERRALS. The State commission said Nevada

Power Co. violated utility rules by providing a dealer referral service for installation of new air conditioning and heating equipment without an approved tariff. It said that the utility offered the program directly, as opposed to through an affiliate, and must stop referring dealers to customers. Docket No. 96-12013, Aug. 13, 1997 (Nev.P.S.C.).
