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.
