29.1 Purpose - The purpose of this clause is to permit Western

to recover the annual charges assessed by the Commission

under Section 382.202 of the Commission's Regulations

pursuant to the provisions of the Commission's Order No.

472. For purposes of recovering annual charges assessed

Western by the Commission, this Section establishes,

pursuant to Section 154.38(d)(6) of the Commission's

Regulations, an "ACA Surcharge" to be applicable to

quantities of gas sold or transported under all of

Western's Rate Schedules contained in Volume Nos. 1 and 2

of Western's FERC Gas Tariff. This amount is in addition

to any amounts otherwise payable to Western under said Rate




29.2 Basis for the Annual Charge Adjustment Charge - The Rate

Schedules specified in Section 29.1 hereof shall include an

Annual Charge Adjustment unit charge (ACA unit charge)

applicable to each MMBTU of gas sold or transported

thereunder, and the unit charge rate shall be reflected on

Sheets No. 10 and 11 of Second Revised Volume No. 1 and

Sheet No. 1A of Original Volume No. 2 of this FERC Gas

Tariff. The ACA unit charge shall be included in the

commodity component of any rate schedule with two-part



29.3 Filing Procedure - Changes to the ACA unit charge must be

filed annually to reflect the annual charge unit rate

authorized by the Commission each fiscal year and are

subject to the notice requirements of Section 154.22 of the

Commission's Regulations. In the event, however, the

Commission's establishment of such annual charge unit rate

for a particular fiscal year prohibits Western from making

a timely filing for a change to its ACA Charge, then the

FERC's 30 day notice requirements under Section 154.22

shall be deemed waived for purposes of this Section 29.


29.4 Payment by Customer - The amount applicable to each

customer under its respective rate schedule shall be due

and payable with the bill for the month to each customer.
