Electric Power Cost Adjustment


C. The "Effective Period" is the twelve-month period

commencing with the effective date of any rate

change made under this Section 17.

D. The "Rate Determinants" are the projected

Reservation and Usage billing units for each of the

Applicable Rate Schedules for the Effective Period.


17.3 Filing and Effective Date. The effective EPCA under the

Applicable Rate Schedules shall be included as part of

the TCRA, which is set forth on Sheet Nos. 31 through

37 in this Volume No. 1, and other applicable sheets in

Pipeline's FERC Gas Tariff. The effective date of each

EPCA shall be November 1 and April 1 of each year.

Pipeline shall also be entitled to make additional

filings, as necessary, to reflect periodic changes in

Electric Power Costs. All filings made by Pipeline

pursuant to this Section 17 shall be made at least 30

days prior to the effective date, and shall include the

following information by month and by function, as

applicable: (1) projected electric power utilization;

(2) Projected Electric Power Costs; and (3) the

source(s) from which Pipeline expects to purchase

electric power or incur EPCs. Pipeline shall also

include, in each EPCA filing, computations showing the

derivation of such Adjustment.


17.4 Determination of EPCA. The EPCA for each rate

component of each Rate Schedule shall be determined by

dividing the Projected Electric Power Costs by the

applicable Rate Determinants. Cost allocation and rate

design will be done in a manner that maintains the cost

allocation and rate design that underlies Pipeline's

then-effective rates, which have been either approved by

the Commission or accepted by the Commission to be

effective subject to refund.


17.5 Unrecovered EPC Reimbursement Subaccount. Pipeline

shall maintain as a subaccount of Account No. 186 the

Unrecovered EPC Reimbursement Subaccount, for the sole

purpose of determining EPC adjustments pursuant to this

Section 17. The Unrecovered EPC Reimbursement

Subaccount will be debited or credited, as appropriate,

each month for the following:

A. the difference between collections under the EPCA

and Pipeline's actual Electric Power Costs; and

B. prior period adjustments to the Electric Power

Costs incurred by Pipeline; and
