Chapter 393

previous next Effective - 28 Aug 2006bottom

  393.310.  Certain gas corporations to file set of experimental tariffs with PSC, minimum requirements — extension of tariffs. — 1.  This section shall only apply to gas corporations as defined in section 386.020.  This section shall not affect any existing laws and shall only apply to the program established pursuant to this section.

  2.  As used in this section, the following terms mean:

  (1)  "Aggregate", the combination of natural gas supply and transportation services, including storage, requirements of eligible school entities served through a Missouri gas corporation's delivery system;

  (2)  "Commission", the Missouri public service commission; and

  (3)  "Eligible school entity" shall include any seven-director, urban or metropolitan school district as defined pursuant to section 160.011, and shall also include, one year after July 11, 2002, and thereafter, any school for elementary or secondary education situated in this state, whether a charter, private, or parochial school or school district.

  3.  Each Missouri gas corporation shall file with the commission, by August 1, 2002, a set of experimental tariffs applicable the first year to public school districts and applicable to all school districts, whether charter, private, public, or parochial, thereafter.

  4.  The tariffs required pursuant to subsection 3 of this section shall, at a minimum:

  (1)  Provide for the aggregate purchasing of natural gas supplies and pipeline transportation services on behalf of eligible school entities in accordance with aggregate purchasing contracts negotiated by and through a not-for-profit school association;

  (2)  Provide for the resale of such natural gas supplies, including related transportation service costs, to the eligible school entities at the gas corporation's cost of purchasing of such gas supplies and transportation, plus all applicable distribution costs, plus an aggregation and balancing fee to be determined by the commission, not to exceed four-tenths of one cent per therm delivered during the first year; and

  (3)  Not require telemetry or special metering, except for individual school meters over one hundred thousand therms annually.

  5.  The commission may suspend the tariff as required pursuant to subsection 3 of this section for a period ending no later than November 1, 2002, and shall approve such tariffs upon finding that implementation of the aggregation program set forth in such tariffs will not have any negative financial impact on the gas corporation, its other customers or local taxing authorities, and that the aggregation charge is sufficient to generate revenue at least equal to all incremental costs caused by the experimental aggregation program.  Except as may be mutually agreed by the gas corporation and eligible school entities and approved by the commission, such tariffs shall not require eligible school entities to be responsible for pipeline capacity charges for longer than is required by the gas corporation's tariff for large industrial or commercial basic transportation customers.

  6.  The commission shall treat the gas corporation's pipeline capacity costs for associated eligible school entities in the same manner as for large industrial or commercial basic transportation customers, which shall not be considered a negative financial impact on the gas corporation, its other customers, or local taxing authorities, and the commission may adopt by order such other procedures not inconsistent with this section which the commission determines are reasonable or necessary to administer the experimental program.

  7.  Tariffs in effect as of August 28, 2005, shall be extended until terminated by the commission.
