§ 59.17. Furnishing of meters and regulations.
(a) Installation. Except as provided in § 59.31 (relating to service from production or transmission lines), a public utility shall provide and install at its own expense and shall continue to own, maintain and operate equipment necessary for the regulation and measurement of gas furnished to its customers. If meters or regulators not required by this section are furnished by the utility for the convenience of the customer, a reasonable charge for the meters or regulators may be made. Nothing in this subsection may be construed to require the utility to install regulating equipment on any gas piping system of a customer beyond the point of delivery at the meter outlet of the utility.
(b) Excess pressure protection. If gas is supplied from a high or medium pressure distribution system and the pressure is reduced to standard service pressure for use by the customer, the installation shall be provided with adequate over-pressure protection to prevent the pressure from exceeding 2 pounds per square inch in installations made on or before May 1, 1986, and the safe operating pressure for connected and properly adjusted gas utilization equipment in installations made after that date, in the event of a pressure regulator of failure.
The provisions of this § 59.17 amended May 30, 1986, effective May 31, 1986, 16 Pa.B. 1901. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (73203).
