(143 FERC ¶ 62,002; Apr. 2, 2013). Discussion: The Georgia-AlabamaSouth Carolina System (System) consists of ten projects in or on the border of the states of Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina. The power generated at these projects is sold to 170 preference entities serving 203 preference customers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The System provides 2,184,232 kilowatts of capacity and about 3,381,000 MWh of average annual energy from stream-flow based on modeling for the period of record. Existing rate schedules are predicated upon a July 2012 repayment study and other supporting data. A repayment study prepared in February of 2017 shows that existing rates meet repayment criteria and would generate a large surplus. The revised repayment study shows that a revenue reduction of $18,991,000 in Fiscal Year 2018 and all future years over the current repayment study will result in all costs being repaid within the term of these rate schedules or their service life. The revenue requirement is $200,000,000 per year. Southeastern is proposing to revise the existing rate schedules to generate this revenue. The rate adjustment reduces the Revenue Requirement by about nine percent (9%). To collect this reduced revenue requirement, rates for capacity have been reduced by fifteen percent (15%). The current energy rate will be extended. This rate reduction is due to capitalized deficits that were unpaid in 2012 being recovered, and required payments due in the last five years being met.1 Southeastern is proposing 1 In 2012, Southeastern had large repayment obligations on two system projects as well as outstanding capitalized deferred expenses.

South Carolina System of Projects' power for a period ending September 
30, 2017. (143 FERC ] 62,002; Apr. 2, 2013).
    Discussion: The Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System (System) 
consists of ten projects in or on the border of the states of Georgia, 
Alabama, and South Carolina. The power generated at these projects is 
sold to 170 preference entities serving 203 preference customers in 
Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and North 
Carolina. The System provides 2,184,232 kilowatts of capacity and about 
3,381,000 MWh of average annual energy from stream-flow based on 
modeling for the period of record.
    Existing rate schedules are predicated upon a July 2012 repayment 
study and other supporting data. A repayment study prepared in February 
of 2017 shows that existing rates meet repayment criteria and would 
generate a large surplus.
    The revised repayment study shows that a revenue reduction of 
$18,991,000 in Fiscal Year 2018 and all future years over the current 
repayment study will result in all costs being repaid within the term 
of these rate schedules or their service life. The revenue requirement 
is $200,000,000 per year. Southeastern is proposing to revise the 
existing rate schedules to generate this revenue. The rate adjustment 
reduces the Revenue Requirement by about nine percent (9%). To collect 
this reduced revenue requirement, rates for capacity have been reduced 
by fifteen percent (15%). The current energy rate will be extended.
    This rate reduction is due to capitalized deficits that were unpaid 
in 2012 being recovered, and required payments due in the last five 
years being met.\1\ Southeastern is proposing
