    104(a) Each section of this form shall be indexed and tabbed, including a table of contents listing the page numbers of each schedule.

    127(b) If information requested in the form described above is not applicable to the applicant, so state and provide an explanation on the specific schedule.

    152(c) If a projected test year is used, provide a complete set of the Commission Form PSC/AFD 18 (6/90), entitled “Financial, Rate and Engineering Minimum Filing Requirements – Class C Utilities” (as described above) which require a designation of historical or projected information. Such schedules shall be submitted for the historical base year, and any projected year subsequent to the base year and prior to the projected test year, in addition to the projected year. If no designation is shown on a schedule, submit that schedule for the test year only. In lieu of providing separate pages for the above required schedules, the information required can be combined on the same page by adding columns. In the rate base schedules, Section A, the beginning and end-of-year balances shall be shown. For any intermediate period or year, only the year-end balance shall be shown.
