The Purchased Gas Adjustment Rules are implemented by the Tennessee Regulatory Authority (Authority). Purchased Gas Adjustment (PGA) Rules are intended to permit the company/LDC (local gas distribution company regulated by the Authority) to recover, in timely fashion, the total cost of gas purchased for delivery to its customers and to assure that the Company does not over-collect or under-collect Gas Costs from its customers.

These Rules are intended to apply to all Gas Costs incurred in connection with the purchase, transportation and/or storage of gas purchased for general system supply, including, but not limited to, natural gas purchased from interstate pipeline transmission companies, producers, brokers, marketers, associations, intrastate pipeline transmission companies, joint ventures, providers of liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), substitute, supplemental or synthetic natural gas (SNG), and other hydrocarbons used as feed-stock, other distribution companies and end-users, whether or not the Gas Costs are regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and whether or not the provider of the gas, transportation or storage is affiliated with the Company.

The rates for gas service set forth in all of the Rate Schedules of the Company shall be adjusted pursuant to the terms of the PGA, or any specified portion of the PGA as determined by individual Rate Schedule(s). The PGA shall consist of three major components: (a) the Gas Charge Adjustment; (b) the Refund Adjustment and (c) the Actual Cost Adjustment (ACA).

No provisions of these rules shall supersede any provision of a special contract approved by the Authority.
