(2) If after investigation and hearing it is found that any term or condition of service, measurement, practice, act, or service complained of is unjust, unreasonable, unduly preferential, unjustly discriminatory, or otherwise in violation of the State Natural Gas Regulation Act or of the orders of the commission or if it is found that any service is inadequate or that any reasonable service cannot be obtained, the commission may substitute therefor, effective as of the date of the order, such other terms or conditions of service, measurements, practices, acts, or service and make such order respecting any such changes in such terms and conditions of service, measurements, practices, acts, or service as are just and reasonable.
