Rules regarding the production, sale, and transfer of manufactured gas will also apply to natural gas. This section regulates natural gas utilities that serve ten or more customers, more than one customer when any portion of the central tank system is located in a public area, or at least one customer when any portion of the central tank system is located off the customer's premises in a public area.
The regulations describe permitting and application requirements, cost-of-gas adjustment requirements that must be met by regulated facilities, requirements for natural gas used in vehicles, rate assistance programs for low-income customers, rules for the relationship between natural gas utilities and marketers, the allowable exercise of eminent domain by natural gas utilities, and required response in the event of gas emergencies.
