Regulatory Commission of Alaska: Notice of Utility Tariff Filing (HEA)

Notice of Utility Tariff Filing

The REGULATORY COMMISSION OF ALASKA (Commission) gives notice that Homer Electric Association, Inc. (HEA), filed TA424-32, proposing to add two new cost elements to the calculation of HEA’s quarterly Cost of Power Adjustment (COPA) surcharge.  The first cost element is for the recovery of costs associated with the purchase of Interruptible Storage Service from Cook Inlet Natural Gas Storage Alaska, LLC. The second cost element is to account for the margins from spot sales of excess natural gas to other entities. HEA states that the addition of these two cost elements will provide it with the flexibility to handle situations in which it has excess natural gas available. HEA states that the benefits include the opportunity to store excess gas and the opportunity to collect margins on gas sales to offset fuel costs and reduce the COPA surcharge to its members.

This notice does not contain all requested revisions and the Commission may approve a rate or classification which varies from those proposed. You may obtain more information about this filing by contacting J. D. Draves, Manager of Regulatory Affairs and Rate Deisgn, at HEA at 3977 Lake Street, Homer, AK 99603; phone: (907) 235-8551.
