GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
D. TCR DEMAND SURCHARGE PROVISIONS:
1. The TCR Demand Surcharge shall be calculated by first annualizing the TCR
Demand surcharge costs by dividing by five (5) years. This quotient is then
divided by the Total Annual Billing Units.
Even if the method of calculating entitlements units changes, e.g., because
of implementation of service restructuring, the surcharge will continue to be
billed according to Section 21.D.2.
2. The TCR Demand Surcharge is a surcharge applied to the monthly entitlement
quantities of Northern's firm customers, including the GS-1 customers. The
total monthly amount to be surcharged is determined by multiplying the
monthly entitlement quantity times the surcharge rate as set forth on Tariff
Sheet Nos. 50 through 58.
The billing of the Demand Surcharge will be limited to the customers and the
Total Annual Billing Units listed on Appendix B of the Stipulation and
Agreement of Settlement, Docket No. RP91-40-002.
In the event any service agreement between Northern and a traditional
Firm Sales Customer liable for charges under this Section 21 is terminated or
its term is reduced for any reason, including, but not limited to, the
expiration of said agreement, cancellation and abandonment of service, or a
change in corporate identity or bankruptcy occurs, such Customer shall not be
relieved of its obligation under this Section 21. In such event, Northern
shall at such Customer's option either (a) bill the customer, within 45 days
after Northern receives notice of such termination, reduction or change, a
one-time charge equal to the uncollected portion of the 5-year demand
surcharge total, as would result from the annual billing units detailed on
Appendix B of the Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement, Docket No. RP91-
40-002, or (b) continue billing the TCR Demand Surcharge on a Monthly basis
to said Customer or, if appropriate, such Customer's successor in interest in
whole or in part, during the remainder of the Amortization Period (including
under its new corporate identity, if any, and/or under said Customer's new
Rate Schedule, if any, or in any other manner allowable.)
To the extent an existing traditional Firm Sales Customer transfers a
portion of its respective service territory to a new Firm Sales Customer, a
proportionate share of the entitlements and associated TCR demand surcharge
shall be applicable to the new Firm Customers.
