Southern states that the proposed tariff sheets implement the Gas Research Institute's (GRI) revised surcharges for 2001. The 2001 GRI Funding Formula consists of surcharges of (i) .70¢ per Dth applicable to the commodity/usage portion of firm service rates and the interruptible rates and (ii) either 9.0¢ per Dth for high load factor customers or 5.5¢ per Dth for low load factor customers on the demand/reservation component of firm service rates. The 2001 GRI Funding Formula provides for a surcharge of 1.1¢ per Dth on service rates for small customers. The Commission authorized these surcharges in Docket No. RP00-313-00 to be effective January 1, 2001. Consistent with the Commission's order dated September 19, 2000, Southern has proposed these tariff sheets to be effective January 1, 2001.

All such motions or protests must be filed in accordance with Section 154.210 of the Commission's Regulations. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceedings.
