Advice No. 5584
(U 904 G)
Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject: Revisions to Rule No. 13 – Meters and Equipment and Rule No. 24 –
Supply to Separate Premises and Resale of Gas
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) hereby submits for approval by the
California Public Utilities Commission (Commission or CPUC) revisions to its Rule No.
13, Meters and Equipment, and Rule No. 24, Supply to Separate Premises and
Resale of Gas, applicable throughout its service territory, as shown on Attachment A.
Purpose
The purpose of this Advice Letter (AL) is to revise Rule No. 13 and Rule No. 24 to
make tariff language changes that are in alignment with the Public Utilities Code
(PUC), Article 3. Equipment, Practices, and Facilities, Section 780.5 (PUC Code).
Background
SoCalGas’ tariffs reflect and represent the outcome of numerous Commission
decisions, resolutions, rulings, general orders, code changes, laws, and policy
changes that have occurred over the years. As a result, tariff language and/or
conditions of service expire or become obsolete. Currently, Rule Nos. 13 and 24 do
not mention the building permit requirement and are missing two of the exceptions.
The PUC Code indicates individual metering is required when residential units are
equipped with vented gas appliances and when a building permit has been obtained
on or after July 1, 1982. Additionally, the PUC Code outlines exceptions. Hence,
SoCalGas proposes to remove obsolete language in its Rule No. 13 and Rule No. 24
to add language consistent with the PUC Code, which outlines the following:
The commission shall require every residential unit in an apartment house or
similar multiunit residential structure, condominium, and mobilehome park for

Advice No. 5584 -2- February 13, 2020 which a building permit has been obtained on or after July 1, 1982, other than a dormitory or other housing accommodation provided by any postsecondary educational institution for its students or employees and other than farmworker housing, to be individually metered for electrical and gas service, except that separate metering for gas service is not required for residential units which are not equipped with gas appliances requiring venting or are equipped with only vented decorative appliances or which receive the majority of energy used for water or space heating from a solar energy system or through cogeneration technology. Requested Revisions SoCalGas proposes the following revisions to its Rule No. 13, section B. Meter Installation, Sheet 2: Individual metering is required for every residential unit in an apartment house or similar multiunit residential structure, condominium, and mobilehome park for which a building permit has been obtained on or after July 1, 1982, other than a dormitory or other housing accommodation provided by any postsecondary educational institution for its students or employees and other than farmworker housing, except that separate metering for gas service is not required for residential units which are not equipped with gas appliances requiring venting or are equipped with only vented decorative appliances or which receive the majority of energy used for water or space heating from a solar energy system or through cogeneration technology. new multi-unit residential structures where such multi-unit tenants use gas directly in gas appliances that individually serve each occupancy and which require venting. Exception: Effective January 1, 2005, pursuant to Senate Bill 1891, if the only vented appliances serving the dwelling unit are decorative appliances the unit is not required to be separately metered and may receive its gas supply through a master meter.Such individual metering will be provided by the Utility. SoCalGas proposes the following revisions to its Rule No. 24, B. Furnishing and Metering of Gas, section 1.a. Appliances Requiring Venting (Sheet 1): Each new Individual metering is required for each single or Multi-family Accommodation unit, where the tenant can use gas directly in gas appliances requiring venting, and for which a building permit has been obtained on or after July 1, 1982, other than a dormitory or other housing accommodation provided by any postsecondary educational institution for its students or employees and other than farmworker housing.shall be individually metered by the Utility. However, pursuant to Senate Bill 1891 effective January 1, 2005, if the only vented appliances serving the dwelling unit are decorative appliances, the unit is not required to be separately metered and Separate metering for gas service is not required for residential units which are not equipped with gas

METER INSTALLATION (Continued) Upon application by the owner, lessee or tenant, and as may otherwise be permitted by this Rule, a single meter and/or regulator will be furnished and installed in some convenient place approved by the Utility in accordance with Utility practice, upon the customer's premises, when it is the desire of the owner, lessee or tenant to install sub-meters and/or sub-regulators to meter and/or regulate the gas supply to various units, buildings, or equipment; provided, however, that the Utility shall not be required to supply sub-meters or sub-regulators. In such cases, the subsidiary meters and regulators installed for the segregation of gas deliveries beyond the outlet connection of the Utility's meter shall be furnished, installed, maintained, and tested by the owner, lessee or tenant at his own expense. When the owner of a premises served through a single meter desires to convert his service so that tenants will be individually metered and thereby become applicants for gas service of the Utility, it will be the owner's responsibility to post and give written notice of such proposed change to each tenant affected thereby, at least 30 days in advance. Individual metering is required for every residential unit in an apartment house or similar multiunit residential structure, condominium, and mobilehome park for which a building permit has been obtained on or after July 1, 1982, other than a dormitory or other housing accommodation provided by any postsecondary educational institution for its students or employees and other than farmworker housing, except that separate metering for gas service is not required for residential units which are not equipped with gas appliances requiring venting or are equipped with only vented decorative appliances or which receive the majority of energy used for water or space heating from a solar energy system or through cogeneration technology. Such individual metering will be provided by the Utility. (TO BE INSERTED BY UTILITY) ADVICE LETTER NO. DECISION NO. 2P4 5584 ISSUED BY (TO BE INSERTED BY CAL.

Each space or lot in new mobilehome parks or manufactured housing communities, for which construction has commenced after January 1, 1997, shall be individually metered by the Utility. c. Mobilehome Park or Manufactured Housing Community Expansion. If an existing master meter mobilehome park or manufactured housing community constructed prior to January 2, 1997 is adding new spaces, the Customer will make a determination as to whether such added spaces are to be served by the Utility or through the existing master meter, based on whether the site conditions will permit the installation and maintenance of a new gas distribution system and individual meters by the Utility in compliance with the provisions of Rules No. 20 and 21 or whether, in the reasonable determination of the Customer, it is practicable to have the master meter customer extend their distribution system and supply gas to the new tenants through the existing master meter and customer owned submeters.
