This paper consists of: (1) an analysis of the current cost sharing for hydroelectricity production arrangements for the Federal projects currently classified as those whose electrical output is marketed by the Southeastern Power Administration (SEPA); an evaluation of the revenue position change of second-best alternative pricing of the energy and capacity avoided by the electrical suppliers in the southeast; case studies of the possible effects of these changes on the end-users (at the electric meter). Any change in prices will cause some quantity changes at the retail level. These changes are reflected in a demand model derived for and applied to Rural Electric Cooperatives (EMC's) in Georgia.
