The rates for service hereunder shall be those of the Customer’s companion rate, excluding Factor GC of Rider 6, Gas Supply Cost. In place of Factor GC, the Customer shall be charged a Balancing and Storage Adjustment which shall be the sum of the following: (1) Transportation Service Adjustment (TSA); (2) Storage Service Cost Recovery (SSCR); and (3) Customer Select Balancing Charge (CSBC) multiplied by the Customer’s total use in the billing period, each such component as determined in Rider 6, Gas Supply Cost. The CBSC will be replaced with the Storage Balancing Charge (SBC) per Rider 6 as of May 1, 2022. Additionally, the Customer shall receive a Transportation Service Credit (TSC) consisting of the sum of: (1) a 0.04 cent per therm storage withdrawal adjustment credit, and (2) a 0.26 cent per therm credit for gas in storage, multiplied by the Customer’s total use in the billing period. In the event that the Customer’s Supplier does not provide the Company the required firm supply affidavit by November 1 of each year, as required under Rider 16 – Supplier Aggregation Service, the Company shall charge the Customer the Company’s Non Commodity Gas Cost (NCGC), as filed from time to time as part of Rider 6, Gas Supply Cost, in place of the CSBC, from November 1 through March 31.
