12.1 SERVICE ENTRANCE FACILITIES

12.1.1 EXTENSIONS TO SERVE NEW CUSTOMERS

A. DESCRIPTION/REGULATIONS

1. Applicant, as used herein, means the subdivider, developer, builder or owner applying for the construction of a telephone distribution system to serve one or more new customers.

2. Extension means the construction or installation of plant and/or facilities by the Company to provide service from existing plant and/or facilities themselves. This term includes all plant and/or facilities for transmission and/or distribution, whether located on a public street or right of way, or on private property, including the wire, cable pipe, conduit or other means of conveying a service from existing plant and/or facilities to each unit or structure to be served.

The extension ends at the point where the service connects to the RDP.

3. The Company is not required to construct, own, operate or maintain an extension on any property unless the Company is legally authorized to do so, for example through an easement or right-of-way. The applicant shall ensure that the Company is provided with such legal authority, at no cost to the Company and with no requirement for condemnation of the property.

4. In constructing and operating an extension, the Company shall use equipment and practices that meet all applicable requirements which are consistent with industry best practices and standards and the Company’s minimum system design standards, unless requested otherwise by the applicant.

5. Connections from the existing telephone distribution system to the underground system installed within the applicant’s subdivision are made by an extension of existing facilities in the normal method of construction along with the established route which will serve the subdivision.

Where the electric utility involved provides such an extension by means of overhead facilities, the Company’s facilities may also be provided by means of overhead construction.

6. The Company, customers, applicants, developers, builders, municipal, bodies and other persons shall cooperate fully in order to facilitate construction on an extension at the lowest reasonable cost consistent with system reliability and safety. This includes sharing trenches where practicable, and coordinating scheduling and other aspects of construction to minimize delays and to avoid difficult conditions such as frozen or unstable soils.

7. If the applicant requests an extension that will serve both a designated growth area and an area not designated for growth, the Company will pay for, or financially contribute to, the portion of the extension that is necessary to serve a designated growth area, except as provided for herein.

The Company will not pay for or contribute financially to the portion of the extension that will serve an area not designated for growth unless the area was determined to be exempt under

N.J.A.C. 14:3-8.2.

8. The Company is eligible to apply for cost recovery under a Targeted Revitalization Incentive

Program (TRIP) charge in accordance with N.J.A.C 14:3-10.

9. The applicant shall furnish the items listed below without charge and in sufficient time in the judgment of the Company for it to meet service requirements:

utility as well as the Company to commerce work on their respective underground systems.

14. The charges specified in B. following are based on the premise that each applicant shall agree to cooperate with the Company in an effort to keep the cost of construction and installation of the underground telephone communication system as low as possible. This includes the scheduling of construction to prelude the necessity for trenching in frozen soils, or in land fill operations before soils have become stabilized. Should unusual circumstances arise which would reasonably dely underground service, temporarily wires may be installed in whatever manner is most practical under the circumstances, provided, however, that such temporary wires shall be replaced as soon as practicable with a permanent underground service. Upon approval by the Board of Public Utilities, excess costs, if any, due to temporary installations will be charged to the applicant.
