Applicable as a rider to the following base rates of the Company: GS-LVS, GSEH-LVS, GS-LVT, GSEHLVT,
GS-HV, and GSEH-HV (each individually a Small Business Base Rate and collectively Small
Business Base Rates). All terms and conditions of the Small Business Base Rates under which the
customer takes service shall remain applicable, except that the incentive specified below shall apply in
accordance with the terms and conditions of this Rider. A customer can receive only one (1) incentive
per premises. Rider SBE shall not be combined with the following Rate Riders of the Company: CR, SA,

AVAILABILITY
Available in all areas served by the Company. This Rider is available to any premises served under the
Small Business Base Rates above that experiences a permanent growth in electrical demand of at least 5
kW (for rates GS-LVS and GSEH-LVS) or 10 kW (for rates GS-LVT, GSEH-LVT, GS-HV, and GSEH-HV)
that is placed into service prior to January 1, 2013. This Rider is not available in instances of customer
load growth that results from the relocation of existing load currently served by the Company at another
location.
MONTHLY BILLING DISCOUNT
Subject to compliance with the terms and conditions hereof and the execution of an associated contract
for service under the Rider, the customer will be eligible to receive one of the following incentives in the
form of a monthly discount on such customer’s electric bill applicable to the first twenty-four (24) months
of service to the new load by Company:
1. Customer will receive a discount equal to fifteen percent (15%) of the Incremental Base
Revenues as defined in this Rider.
2. A discount of twenty percent (20%) of the Incremental Base Revenues as defined in this Rider is
provided for qualifying customers who experience a net increase in permanent full-time jobs of at
least three (3) above their highest level of employment during the most recent twelve (12) months
prior to requesting a discount provided under this Rider.
Only net increases in jobs will qualify. Transfers of jobs between commonly owned, controlled, or leased
facilities within the State of Mississippi will not be deemed to be a net increase in jobs. Any jobs added
prior to the effective date shall not be counted when determining whether a net increase in jobs has
occurred.
The customer’s monthly Base Revenue as defined in this Rider will be reduced by the applicable
discount(s) calculated above; provided, however, that no monthly bill shall be reduced beyond the
minimum bill amount calculated under the applicable Small Business Base Rate.

DEFINITIONS
Base Revenue – Revenue as calculated from monthly billing on the applicable rate excluding the fuel
adjustment clause, miscellaneous rate adjustments, and the tax clause.
Incremental Base Revenues – Monthly base revenues from the customer after incremental new load is
added that are in excess of the monthly base revenues before load was added. This is calculated as
follows:
(a) A Monthly Benchmark Usage profile is created which consists of the billing kW and kWh
from each of the twelve billing months immediately prior to customer requesting the
discounts provided under this Rider. These twelve months of usage will be the
benchmark for all bills calculated during the term of the Rider.
(b) The difference between the base bill as calculated on the present month’s power usage
and the base bill as calculated on the Monthly Benchmark Usage for the corresponding
month is determined (ex., January’s actual base bill minus base bill calculated for the
monthly benchmarked January). Both bills will be calculated using the applicable rate
schedule in effect at time of billing. The result is the Incremental Base Revenue for the
present month.
If the calculated incremental base revenue is less than or equal to zero, customer will receive no discount
and will be billed in accordance with terms of the applicable rate.
Full-time Job – A position filled by a new employee working 30 hours or more per week constitutes one
full-time job.
TERM
Service under the Rider requires a contract that is consistent with the provisions hereof, including a
minimum two (2) year term. This SBE rider will terminate at the earlier of: (i) expiration of two (2) years
following initial service under the Small Business Base Rate or (ii) termination by the Commission as
provided by law, and the customer will continue to be served under the applicable Small Business Base
Rate schedule without the monthly discount provided herein. Should the customer wish to terminate
service anytime during the initial two (2) years of service, customer shall be subject to the minimum bill
charges of the Small Business Base Rate schedule for the balance of the initial two (2) year term of
service.
The contract for service under this rider must be executed by an authorized representative of customer’s
company. To be eligible for the twenty percent (20%) credit, the contract must be accompanied by a
written statement attesting to the number of new permanent full-time jobs and the date of addition. The
customer must also include a statement of the highest level of employment at the facility during the
previous twelve (12) months prior to initiation of service under the Rider. At the Company’s discretion
during the term of the Rider, Company will request and customer will provide evidence satisfactory to the
Company of the actual increase in employment. Customer will also inform Company of reduced
employment at any time during the rider term. Should the actual increase in employment drop below the
jobs required for rider eligibility at any time during the rider term, the additional five (5) percent rider credit
will be immediately terminated.

About Mississippi Coal
Welcome! It is an honor to have a moment of your day. We are in favor of all forms of energy. We care about the future of this great Nation and seek to expose the corruption behind the Kemper County CO2 capturing experimental Lignite coal Demonstration unit. Our Chief complaint is that the rate payers pay for it in their electric bills. The CO2 capturing does not produce electricity so therefore serves no purpose for the ratepayers. It is a money scam for Mississippi power and Southern Company. Mississippi is first in following the (United Nation's Agenda 21) Kyoto Protocols for the regulation of carbon dioxide, a gas we breathe out of our lungs, by forcing the people to pay for it through energy bills and taxes. Through the process of investigating the Kemper County Coal Plant issue, we feel criminal acts have been committed and that soon FCC violations will be added to the offenses. People are being lied to, deceived, or misled and therefore are fully cooperating with this Lignite experiment. "This blog or any content may contain copyrighted material.
