This Section of the General Terms and Conditions is filed

pursuant to Section 154.402 and Subpart B of Part 382 of the

is to establish an Annual Charges Adjustment (ACA) provision under

it by the Commission pursuant to Part 382 of the Commission's

hereof shall be adjusted by a unit charge to recover ACA Cost. Such

Commission. The ACA unit charge shall be applied to the commodity

component of rates.
