25. Annual Charge Adjustment Provision (ACA)


25.1 Purpose


Annual charges are assessed on Gas pipelines by the

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

such charges assessed Transporter by the Commission,

pursuant to Section 154.402 of the Commission's

Regulations, an ACA Surcharge shall be applicable to

Quantities transported under Transporter's Rate Schedules

FT, IT, and NNS. This ACA Surcharge is in addition to

any amounts otherwise payable to Transporter under said

Rate Schedules. Transporter will not recover any annual

charges recorded in FERC Account 928 in a proceeding

under subpart D of Part 154 of the Code of Federal

Regulations except through its ACA provision.


25.2 Basis of the ACA Unit Charge Rate


The ACA Unit Charge Rate shall be that increment,

adjusted to Transporter's measurement base (Dekatherm)

and pressure base, if required, which has been approved

by valid Commission Orders approving an annual charge

unit rate. The ACA Unit Charge Rate shall be stated on

the effective Tariff Sheet No. 5.
