GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
16. ANNUAL CHARGE ADJUSTMENT
16.1 Purpose. White River is assessed an annual charge by the FERC to
reimburse the United States Treasury for costs incurred by the FERC, other
than costs incurred in the administration of Part I of the Federal Power Act,
not covered by filing fees. To enable White River to recover this annual
charge, this section establishes an Annual Charge Adjustment to be applicable
to White River's rate schedules as set forth on the Statement of Rates.
16.2 Basis of Annual Charge Adjustment. The rates specified on the
Statement of Rates shall include an adjustment for the annual charge. The
adjustment shall be a base increment specified annually by the FERC at the
time the FERC calculates the annual charge bills and shall be adjusted to
White River's pressure base and heat content, if required.
16.3 Accounting Procedure. White River will account for annual charges
paid by charging the amount to Account No. 928, Regulatory Commission
Expenses, of the Commission's Uniform System of Accounts. It is White River's
intent not to recover any annual charges recorded in FERC Account No. 928 in
an NGA § 4 rate case.
16.4 Filing Procedure. Filings by White River to change the Annual
Charge Adjustment shall be made at least 30 days prior to the proposed
effective date, with this period inclusive of 30 days' notice, unless, for
good cause shown, lesser periods are allowed by valid Commission order. Any
filing by White River pursuant to this section shall not become effective
until the filing has been approved by the Commission and White River has made
payment of the annual charge.
16.5 Payment. White River shall remit to the FERC, within 45 days of
the issuance of the bill by the Commission, payment of the annual charge
assessed White River unless White River has filed a petition under 18 C.F.R. §
382.105. Payment must be made to the United States Treasury.
