Natural Gas Retail Rate Case

Members ERG provided consulting assistance to the Cities of Wilson, Monroe, and Rocky Mount, North Carolina and the Greenville Utilities Commission (GUC) relative to a retail gas rate case before the North Carolina Utilities Commission. ERG’s tasks in this proceeding was to analyze North Carolina Natural Gas (NCNG) rate filing to determine: (i) the level of impact of a proposed increase in the transportation rates that the Cities and the GUC pay; (ii) what revisions had been made to the terms and conditions within the rate tariffs applicable to the Cities and the GUC; and (iii) the economic benefit/detriment of a proposed rate that NCNG was proposing for the Cities and the GUC. In con junction with settlement discussions, members of the Firm analyzed NCNG’s offer on behalf of the Cities and the GUC, which, as an interim step, would recover certain fixed plant costs and provide for a rate re-balancing that would provide some temporary benefit to the Cities and the GUC. Members of the Firm also provided comments on a proposed Aggregate Demand Tariff that would provide a collective benefit to the group during periods of constrained gas supply.
