34.1 Purpose. Annual charges are assessed against gas pipelines by the Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission under Part 382 of the Commission's regulations prior to each
fiscal year in order to cover the cost of the operation of the FERC. For the purpose
of recovering annual charges assessed Algonquin by the FERC, this Section 34
establishes pursuant to Section 154.402 of the Commission's regulations an Annual
Charge Adjustment ("ACA") Surcharge to be applicable to quantities sold or transported
under all of Algonquin's rate schedules. This ACA Surcharge is in addition to any
amounts otherwise payable to Algonquin under its rate schedules.
34.2 Rate Schedules Subject to ACA Surcharge. The ACA Surcharge shall be applicable to the
quantities delivered for the account of Customer under all of Algonquin's rate
schedules, except the AFT-CL Customer will only be assessed the ACA Surcharge for gas
volumes transported under an AFT-CL Rate Schedule when the AFT-CL Customer does not pay
an ACA Surcharge under another rate schedule for the same gas volumes transported..
34.3 Basis of the ACA Surcharge. The ACA Surcharge shall be that increment, adjusted to
Algonquin's measurement basis (MMBtu), which has been approved by FERC orders approving
an annual charge unit rate.
34.4 Filing Procedure. The initial ACA Surcharge or any subsequent changes in such
surcharge shall be filed by Algonquin at least thirty days prior to the proposed
effective date unless the establishment by the FERC of the annual charge unit rate for
a particular fiscal year prohibits Algonquin from making a timely filing, whereupon the
FERC's notice requirements under 18 CFR Section 154.1(c), 154.207 shall be deemed
waived for purposes of this Section 34.
The proposed effective date of filings pursuant to this subsection shall be the
effective date prescribed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Such filing
shall become effective without suspension or refund obligation.
