216B.242 NATURAL GAS INVERTED RATES PROGRAM.
The commission may initiate a program designed to demonstrate the effect of inverted rates
on promoting conservation by the residential customers of natural gas utilities. Any inverted rates
ordered by the commission shall present customers with a tailblock price that, to the maximum
extent practicable, reflects the replacement cost of gas. Total revenues collected from customers
involved in this pilot program may not exceed those that would be collected under a flat rate. The
commission may order one public gas utility to implement a pilot program of inverted rates for
residential customers and to monitor the effects of these rates on gas consumption, and on costs to
residential customers. The program shall include a sufficient number of residential customers to
provide statistically significant conclusions regarding the effects and costs of inverted rates.
