Take notice that on August 5, 2005, Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company (Eastern Shore) tendered for filing revised tariff sheets, proposed to be effective July 1, 2005, to eliminate its Cash Out Surcharge rate for the twelve-month period commencing July 1, 2005.
Eastern Shore states that, as a result of its Cash Out Account Balance at March 31, 2005 being in a refund position, Eastern Shore shall refund such balance of $386,237 to its customers. As a further result of such refund Eastern Shore shall also reduce its Cash Out Surcharge rate from $0.0033 to $0.0000 per dekatherm.
Eastern Shore states that section 35, of the General Terms & Conditions (GT & C) of its FERC Gas Tariff, entitled Cash Out Refund/Surcharge, provides that Eastern Shore will refund or surcharge for each annual billing period any difference between the revenues received and the costs incurred under the cash out provisions of its tariff.
The annual billing period referenced above shall be the twelve-month period commencing April 1st and ending the following March 31st. Subsequent to the end of each such annual billing period Eastern Shore shall compare the revenues received by it under the cash-out procedures to the costs incurred. If the revenues received exceed the costs incurred, then Eastern Shore shall refund the net overrecoveries to firm transportation customers on a pro rata basis in accordance with the transportation quantities Eastern Shore delivered during the annual billing period. If the revenues received are less than the costs incurred, then Eastern Shore shall recover the net under recoveries by means of a surcharge applicable to each dekatherm delivered to all firm and interruptible transportation customers. Such surcharge, to be effective July 1 of each year, shall be calculated by dividing the net under recovered balance by the total transportation quantities delivered by Eastern Shore during the annual billing period.
Eastern Shore states that copies of its filing has been mailed to its customers and interested state commissions.
