Zone
A geographical area. A geological zone, however, means an interval of strata of the geologic column that has distinguishing characteristics from surrounding strata.
Zone
A geographical area. A geological zone, however, means an interval of strata of the geologic column that has distinguishing characteristics from surrounding strata. Also, a space or group of spaces within a building with heating and/or cooling requirements sufficiently similar so that comfort conditions can be maintained by a single controlling device.
Zone Heat
A central heating and/or cooling system which is arranged so that different temperatures can be maintained in two or more areas of the building being heated or cooled or simultaneously heated or cooled.
Zone Rate
See RATE, ZONES.
Zone, Storage
See STORAGE, UNDERGROUND.
Zone-Gate Method
A method of developing zoned rates. This method involves first segregating costs by zone as if each zone were a separate entity, then developing the unit costs of gas flowing through each zone. The customers in downstream zones pay the costs associated with their gas flowing through the upstream zones.
