Utility is provided evidence that construction will proceed promptly and financing is adequate; and, b. Applicant has submitted evidence of building permit(s) or fully-executed home purchase contract(s) or lease agreement(s); or, c. Where there is equivalent evidence of occupancy or gas usage satisfactory to the Utility.

Utility, at its election, may apply a Non-Residential Allowance Net Revenue Multiplier of three point four (3.4) as defined in Section I, when it serves as a reasonable proxy for the formula in section C.2. Where the extension will serve a combination of residential and non-residential meters, residential allowances will be added to the non-residential allowances. 5. SEASONAL, INTERMITTENT, INSIGNIFICANT, AND EMERGENCY LOADS. When Applicant requests service that requires an extension to serve loads that are seasonal or intermittent, the allowance for such loads shall be determined using the formula in Section C.2. No allowance will be provided where service is used only for emergency purposes, or for Insignificant Loads. (Continued) (TO BE INSERTED BY UTILITY) ADVICE LETTER NO.
