Take notice that on April 1, 2005, Dominion Transmission, Inc. (DTI) filed a Stipulation and Agreement (Settlement), including pro forma tariff sheets, pursuant to 18 CFR 385.602 (2004) to reduce its rates for transportation service and the fuel retention level for its storage services and establish a five-year moratorium on further transportation and storage rate changes.
DTI states that the Settlement is designed as a limited settlement to existing Commission-approved settlements of DTI proceedings, with the Settlement Amendment leaving in place the settled resolution of a series of issues on the DTI system. DTI asserts that the Settlement preserves the benefit of previously settled issues while providing rate relief to the settling parties, ensuring rate certainty for all, and avoiding the cost and risks of potential litigation. DTI states that the base transportation rate reduction when combined with the storage fuel retention reduction will result in annual rate relief reflected in the Settlement of approximately $49 million.
DTI states that it has served copies of this filing on all parties in Docket Nos. RP97-406, RP00-15, RP00-344, and RP00-632, as well as on any of its customers identified as not included on those service lists.
