Pine Needle shall determine the Current FRP for each Annual Period by the following
(a) The Estimated GRO quantities shall be summed with the balance accumulated at the

accordance with Section 18.5(d). Such resulting quantity shall be allocated to
or assigned among services in accordance with the allocation methods and
principles in effect on Pine Needle's system.
