SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Gas & Electric has lifted natural gas curtailments for big commercial and industrial customers that were imposed due to cold weather elsewhere in the country.
The utility said Friday that improvement in natural gas supplies and pipeline deliveries, slightly warmer local temperatures and anticipated lower demand over the weekend allowed an end to curtailments affecting up to 88 customers.
Power plants and commercial and industrial facilities pay a lower rate for natural gas under agreements to reduce use if supplies run low.
SDG&E says conditions in Texas and southern Rocky Mountain natural gas-producing regions forced major pipelines to declare emergency critical operating conditions. The utility says weather in the Midwest continue to cause significant energy-related issues for that region, which impacts supply to the West.
