Should either of the parties, by force of any such law, order, rule or

Caledonia (a) for the costs of any facilities installed by Caledonia with

connection with Customer’s Service Agreement that Caledonia is obligated to pay

to the Commission or any other governmental authority having jurisdiction. Any

reimbursement due Caledonia by Customer pursuant to this Section 20.1 shall be

due and payable to Caledonia within ten (10) Days of receipt by Customer of

the right to request pre payment for new construction or facilities required at

it’s discretion. Carrying charges shall be computed utilizing interest factors

acceptable to both Caledonia and customer.

which will include the estimated cost of the facilities, operating and

maintenance as well as administrative and general expenses attributable to the

facilities, the revenues Caledonia estimates will be generated, as a result of

such construction, and the availability of capital funds on terms and

conditions acceptable to Caledonia. In estimating the revenues to be

generated, Caledonia will evaluate the existence of capacity limitations

downstream of the facilities, the marketability of the capacity, the
