GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
21. GAS RESEARCH INSTITUTE (GRI) SURCHARGE PROVISION
21.2 Basis of the GRI Surcharge
Transporter's Rate Schedules shall include an increment for GRI
Surcharges for RD&D. Such GRI Surcharges shall be those increments,
adjusted to Transporter's measurement basis (dekatherm), which
has been approved by Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Orders
approving GRI's RD&D expenditures. The GRI Surcharges shall be
reflected on the currently effective Rate Sheets of this FERC Gas
21.3 Filing Procedure
The initial GRI Surcharges or any subsequent changes in such surcharges
shall be filed by Transporter at least thirty (30) days prior to the
proposed effective date.
The proposed effective date of filings pursuant to this subsection shall
be the effective date prescribed by the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission. Any such filing shall not become effective unless it becomes effective
without suspension or refund obligation.
21.4 Voluntary Contribution Mechanism.
Shippers may voluntarily choose to contribute to GRI programs through a
"check-the-box" mechanism on Shipper invoices. The "check-the-box" mechanism will
permit shippers to specify the level of contribution and the project(s) or project
area(s) to be funded at the time of the Shipper's contribution payment.
Transporter shall serve as voluntary collection agent for such collections and
amounts collected pursuant to the "check-the-box" mechanism will not be considered
part of pipeline rates.
