Criteria for just and reasonable rate for attachments
- • rate reduction
(1) A just and reasonable rate shall ensure the public utility, telecommunications utility or consumer-owned utility the recovery from the licensee of not less than all the additional costs of providing and maintaining pole attachment space for the licensee nor more than the actual capital and operating expenses, including just compensation, of the public utility, telecommunications utility or consumer-owned utility attributable to that portion of the pole, duct or conduit used for the pole attachment, including a share of the required support and clearance space in proportion to the space used for pole attachment above minimum attachment grade level, as compared to all other uses made of the subject facilities, and uses that remain available to the owner or owners of the subject facilities.
(2) A licensee shall receive a rental deduction if the licensee is in compliance with rules adopted by the Public Utility Commission for certifying compliance with the laws regulating pole attachments. A licensee is eligible for the rental reduction unless the commission or the utility authorizing the attachment notifies the licensee in writing that the licensee has failed to comply with either the commission’s rules or the terms of a contract between the licensee and the utility authorizing the attachment.
(3) For purposes of determining the rental rate for a pole attachment, the usable space on the pole shall include 20 inches of safety clearance space between communication circuits and electric circuits, provided the licensee is in compliance with rules and agreements as described in subsection (2) of this section.
