NG05-007       In the Matter of the Filing by MidAmerican Energy Company for Approval of Continuation of the IGSPP.


Application by MidAmerican Energy to Continue its Incentive Gas Supply Procurement Program (IGSPP). This program was initially approved by the Commission for a three-year period in 1995, and was approved with modifications for a second three-year period in 1999, and a third three-year period in 2002. This filing proposes to further extend application of the plan, with modifications, to be effective for a five-year period through October 31, 2010. The IGSPP compares actual gas supply costs to a benchmark and allows for a sharing of the difference between ratepayers and MidAmerican Energy.
