* Charges under this new Energy Efficiency Program Cost Adjustment ( “EEPCA”) rate are designed to recover the costs associated with expanded energy efficiency programs not currently collected through the Energy Conservation Charge on your bill.

** The purpose of the NMRS is to recover the Net Metering Credits applied to Customers and the non-reconciling distribution portion of revenue displaced by Customers who have installed on-site generation facilities in accordance.

*** The SPCA shall recover from all customers taking service under the Company's rates only those Program costs incurred by the Company for providing its Program.

**** The AGCE recovers Attorney General Consulting fees.

***** The SRRCA recovers the storm deficit and funds a storm cost reserve.

****** Effective in February 2012, a new line item will appear in the Delivery section on your bill. Entitled "Revenue Decoupling Mechanism" (RDM), the item requires WMECo to balance the actual distribution revenue received with the revenue level set in the company's 2010 rate case. Should WMECo receive more than the set amount, the RDM appears as a credit, and should the Company receive less than that amount, the RDM will be a charge.
