ANY  PROSPECTIVE  TENANT OR LESSEE THEREOF, PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF

INCURRED  AT  SUCH  PREMISES FOR GAS OR ELECTRIC SERVICE OR BOTH FOR THE
LIFE OF THE DWELLING UNIT OR THE PRECEDING TWO YEAR PERIOD, WHICHEVER IS
SHORTER. SUCH INFORMATION SHALL BE IDENTIFIED SOLELY BY THE  ADDRESS  OF
THE  DWELLING  UNIT,  AND  NO  OTHER  INFORMATION IDENTIFYING THE OWNER,
