Consumer Rights and Responsibilities

The Utah Public Service Commission has established rules about member-consumer/cooperative relationships. These rules cover payment of bills, late charges, security deposits, handling complaints, service shut-offs, and other matters. These rules assure consumers of certain rights and outline consumer responsibilities.

If you have a problem, call us at Moon Lake first. If you cannot resolve the problem, call the Utah State Division of Public Utilities in Salt Lake City at 1-(801)-530-6652, and toll-free statewide at 1-(800)-874-0904.
