§ 60.5. Standby sales service.

 Standby retail service shall entitle a transportation service customer to purchase natural gas at tariffed retail rates and shall be made available to a transportation service customer subject to the following conditions:

   (1)  The transportation customer and the natural gas utility shall agree upon the maximum sales volumes that will be provided upon the request of the customer. Volumes taken in excess of this amount will require the payment of a penalty.

   (2)  The rate charged for standby service shall recover natural gas supply fixed costs and any other costs, such as storage service costs where applicable, incurred to maintain natural gas supply for the transportation customer. Revenues for standby service shall be credited against natural gas costs in a proceeding under 66 Pa.C.S. §  1307 (relating to sliding scale of rates; adjustments).

   (3)  A natural gas utility maintains no duty to provide retail service to a transportation customer who declines to elect standby retail service.
