Customer Use of Service

Customer Use of Service

All property of the Company installed in or upon the Customer’s premises used and useful in supplying service is placed there under the Customer’s protection. All reasonable care shall be exercised to prevent loss of or damage to such property and, ordinary wear and tear excepted, the Customer will be held liable for any such loss of property or damage thereto and shall pay to the Company the cost of necessary repairs or replacements.


The Customer will be held responsible for all costs associated with breaking the seals, tampering or interfering with the Company’s meter or other equipment of the Company installed on the Customer’s premises and no one except employees of the Company will be allowed to make any repairs or adjustments to any meter or other piece of apparatus belonging to the Company except that Customer may operate the shut-off valve in case of emergency.

The Customer shall not, directly or indirectly, sell, sublet, assign, or otherwise transfer to others gas purchased from the Company or any part thereof without the consent of the Company. This rule does not apply to a public utility company purchasing gas in bulk expressly for the purpose of distributing it to others. Gas service must not be used in such a manner as to cause unusual fluctuations or disturbances in the Company’s supply system, and, in the case of violation of this rule, the Company may discontinue service, or require the Customer to modify his installation and/or equipment with approved controlling devices. The service supply pipe, regulators, meters and equipment supplied by the Company for each Customer have definite capacities. The Customer shall notify the Company of any substantial changes in service requirements or location of appliances.
