Take notice that on January 25, 2002, Southern Company Services, Inc., acting on behalf of Alabama Power Company, Georgia Power Company, Gulf Power Company, Mississippi Power Company, and Savannah Electric and Power Company (collectively referred to as Southern Companies), tendered for filing changes to Southern Companies' Open Access Transmission Tariff (FERC Electric Tariff, Fourth Revised Volume No. 5) (Tariff). The proposed changes would increase the monthly charge for transmission service on Southern Companies' bulk transmission facilities (those operated above 44/46 kV) from $1.37/kW-month to $1.63/kW-month.

This amendment to the Tariff is being made so that the Tariff will more accurately recover Southern Companies' actual revenue requirement. Southern Companies are revising the Tariff to adopt a formula rate to derive charges for transmission services on their bulk transmission facilities. In addition, the Tariff is being revised to adopt: a “stated rate” approach ($/kW-month) in lieu of the load ratio share approach to derive bulk charges for network integration transmission service; on-peak and off-peak bulk charges for daily point-to-point transmission service (in addition to on-peak and off-peak charges for non-firm point-to-point transmission service); and a cost component to recover the Commission's annual charge. An effective date of April 1, 2002 has been requested for this amendment.

Copies of the filing were served upon Southern Companies' customers under the Tariff and upon the State Public Service Commissions having jurisdiction over Southern Companies.

Comment Date: February 15, 2002.
