Change in Character of Service


Any change in the heating value or the characteristics of the gas service which may impair the safe, efficient use of the gas in the customer’s appliances shall not be made without the Commission’s approval and without adequate notice to the customers. In such event, the gas utility shall make any necessary adjustments to the customer’s appliances without charge and shall conduct the adjustment program with a minimum of inconvenience to the customers.


No changes of standard shall take effect and no expenditure shall be incurred to alter plant or equipment for the purpose of supplying gas under the proposed standard until the Commission has approved the change of standard or until 30 days after notification, data, and schedules required by this rule have been transmitted to the Commission. The provisions of this rule shall not be interpreted as forbidding expenditure for engineering services or experimental or development work needed to determine the character and cost of the proposed changes.
