Posted September 08, 2018 05:10:22Natural gas companies have the option to “stop” natural gas customers from using their hookups in a way that violates state law.
The companies are not required to.
In fact, in most states, they’re allowed to block the hookups.
That’s a problem, because it means that natural gas hookups are basically useless.
This is not the first time a natural gas company has attempted to block a customer’s natural gas use.
In 2016, natural gas companies in Texas and Ohio blocked natural gas consumers from using hookups that connected to a utility’s electric meter.
The court ultimately ruled that natural Gas customers were protected under the state’s Fair Utilities Act.
But it didn’t do much to address the problem, and the company had to pay customers $1.5 million in fines.
This time around, the courts decided to take a much more active role in resolving disputes between natural gas utilities and customers.
The Texas court ruled that it would enforce the state-required fair utility regulation in the event that the company was blocking natural gas usage by a customer.
The judge noted that natural, non-renewable energy providers (NPEs) may block the use of renewable energy by customers.
In short, this ruling could allow NPEs to block customers’ natural gas consumption.
In this case, natural, natural-gas hookups would not be blocked, but customers would still be able to use them.
That means that the natural gas customer could use their natural gas to heat or cool their home, or they could use it to hook up to an electric meter to control the flow of electricity, or to power appliances.
But in other states, it’s not clear how the courts would apply the same protections to NPE customers.
For example, California’s state court, in an opinion by Judge Charles Hahn, wrote that a natural-geothermal energy utility is a natural NPE and therefore subject to the fair utilities act.
He noted that the utility must prove that it is “sufficiently independent from the utility in the conduct of its business and that its services are not detrimental to the health, safety, welfare, or property of the public.”
Hahn’s opinion was a major win for natural gas users, but it still leaves a lot of work to be done.
The California Court of Appeal upheld the lower court’s decision, saying that natural energy customers have a right to control their energy usage through the hookup and to use natural gas if that is necessary to do so.
The courts could also use this ruling to allow natural gas providers to stop customers from disconnecting their hookup from the electric grid if they believe that doing so would be harmful to the environment.
The states that rely on natural gas for electricity have had a difficult time dealing with the problem.
While California has had to pass new laws to deal with the issue, the states that currently rely on gas for power have had to implement some measures to reduce the use and emissions of the gas.
This has meant that natural-seawater hookups, which are common in some states, are still a popular method of power generation in some regions.
If natural gas was to become more common in California, it would make natural-water hookups even more popular.
