Public Hearing: Multifamily Residential Facilities Load Management Incentive Program

A public hearing was held Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014, at the Department of Public Utilities' Operations Center on Jefferson Davis Highway to receive public comment on a proposed amendment to the Department's rules and regulations concerning the City of Richmond gas utility's Multifamily Residential Facilities Load Management Incentive Program.

The deadline for written comments was Sept. 10.

The purpose of the incentive program is to promote the more efficient use of the city's gas utility supply and distribution resources and to maintain or decrease the unit cost of natural gas service within the service area. A multifamily residential facility is defined as more than 20 dwelling units having one street address and sharing one foundation footprint.

Owners of eligible existing facilities within the service area can apply for the incentive program to convert existing equipment to gas or to install gas equipment into new construction.
