Pursuant to this Section 33.2 of the General Terms and Conditions, each of

the PURCHASERS under COMPANY'S former OCD-1, OCDL-1, OCD-2,

OCD-3, G-1, G-2 and G-3 sales rate schedules shall be assessed a fixed

monthly take-or-pay charge in the amount authorized by the Commission and

set forth for each such PURCHASER on Sheet Nos. 23 through 25 of COM-

interest expense accruing under this section by remitting the total amount

assessed under this section against such PURCHASER within sixty days of the

effective date of any Commission order authorizing COMPANY to bill PUR-

CHASER for buy-out and buy-down costs pursuant to this section.


Any PURCHASER whose sales Service Agreement with COMPANY under

the above-referenced sales rate schedules expires prior to COMPANY'S

CHASER pursuant to this Section 33 shall at PURCHASER's election

exercisable within 60 days of the expiration of its sales Service Agreement

with COMPANY either (1) remit to COMPANY the balance of amounts due

to COMPANY from such PURCHASER pursuant to this Section 33 or (2)

elect to continue to pay the fixed monthly charge provided for hereunder for

the duration of any applicable amortization period. Unless COMPANY is

advised in writing to the contrary within the 60 day period following expiration

of its
