A bill at the Utah State Capitol would define the relationship between a local distribution company, a wholesale supplier and a wholesale customer of natural gas.
Senate Bill 239, Natural Gas Market Fair Access Act, would include fees that a local distribution company may charge and could require the public service commission to consider certain fees charged by a local company in a general rate case.
Dominion Energy is opposed to the bill.
“Those are really issues that the utility are involved in but we believe that this agency agreement excludes us from those decisions, so we have some concerns about that,” said Kelly Mendenhall, Regulatory and Pricing Director at Dominion Energy.
The bill passed the Senate Business and Labor Committee and now moves on to the Senate.
