INITIAL DECISION FROM THE BENCH
Before George M. Kashi
Administrative Law Judge
This complaint was filed by Mary Cameron (Customer) against PECO Energy Company (Utility). It is an appeal from a BCS decision concerning ability to pay utility bills. An answer was filed and a hearing was held on May 6, 1996. Utility appeared at the hearing represented by counsel and one witness. Customer, after being provided notice, failed to appear; did not request a continuance nor explain the failure to appear. Utility presented evidence of the customer's payment history, the outstanding arrearage and the BCS decision. Utility also provided evidence that the account was finaled on April 2, 1996, and Customer moved. Counsel then moved to dismiss the complaint.
We will grant the motion and dismiss the complaint, with prejudice, for failure to appear at the hearing. Additionally, we accept the BCS result. Finally, we are adding a lump sum payment requiring customer to make up the payments she failed to make in accord with the BCS schedule.
Therefore, It Is Ordered:
1. That the formal complaint filed by Mary Cameron (Customer) against PECO Energy Company (Utility) at Docket No. C-00957475 be and is hereby dismissed with prejudice for Customer's failure to appear at hearing and the Secretary shall mark the Docket closed.
2. That Customer is hereby directed to pay PECO Energy Company $665.00 within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of this order.
3. That Customer is hereby directed to pay by the due dates stated in Customer's current budget utility bills, the additional amount of $10 each month on Customer's finaled overdue Utility balance, at 1115 Dorian Ct., Apt. #3, Chester, PA, of $1,875.96 until the finaled overdue utility balance is fully paid.
