Rate 165 - Special Transportation Rate
This Rate Schedule is available to any Rate Schedule No. 180 Customer that has installed and operable alternate fuel capability on those occasions when PSNC has transportation Service available that is not needed to provide Service under its other Rate Schedules containing fixed rates.


Notice to Interruptible Customers:
Please check your supplies of standby fuel and ensure that your system is in working order so that you will be prepared if curtailment is necessary. The interruptible service you selected under Rate Schedule No. 150 or 180 requires that you be able to accept total curtailment and discontinue the use of gas after two hours' notice.

If an emergency occurs when your account is under curtailment, please IMMEDIATELY notify your account representative, or PSNC Energy gas control personnel. Please do not leave a voice mail message. Gas control personnel are available 24/7 at 704-834-6590. All unauthorized gas usage during periods of curtailment will be charged at the currently effective unauthorized gas rate, in addition to the regular energy charge. Please be sure that this information is communicated internally to all appropriate personnel.

If your situation regarding your ability to accept total curtailment has changed since you selected interruptible service under Rate 150 or 180, please contact us immediately so we can discuss the proper service for your account.

Thank you for your continued cooperation. We appreciate your business and consider it a privilege to serve you.
