The extreme heat makes air conditioning a matter of life and death. Georgia's Public Service Commission wants to make sure no one pulls the plug, even if you can't pay your power bill.
The commission is considering adopting new rules on disconnections during extreme hot weather.
Two Georgia seniors have died during this summer's heat wave.
Georgia Power has its own operating procedures during hot weather, but those rules are not enforceable by the commission.
