At least two maps of each county will accompany each application: A map showing the location of all electric suppliers' lines located outside existing municipal limits as of the date of preparation of the map, which shall be no earlier than the effective date of the Act and no later than the date of application (line maps), and a map showing geographic areas of assignment or unassignment requested outside of existing municipal limits; provided, such maps shall not be required, unless immediately available, for applications as to any area which is the subject of a notice of annexation given pursuant to subsection 7(b)(4) of the Act. Additional maps or verbal descriptions of areas may be filed as necessary. Line map identifications and marker specifications, supplier code identifications, and area map identifications shall be those shown on Exhibits "A","B", and "C" respectively.* *These Exhibits appear following Rule 515-11-1-.08.
|(1)||The base maps shall be a reproduction of the Georgia Department of Transportation county maps, with all planimetric map information subdued with a 60%-133 point line screen, on a scale of one inch to one mile.|
|(2)|| Since Georgia Power

conduct of its business and since it has a fully equipped and competent mapping
section, the mapping entity will:
|(3)||Every electric supplier, and the mapping entity, shall exchange such mapping data and provide such maps on an expeditious schedule, and the Commission may enforce this requirement by appropriate order upon complaint or on its own motion.|
|(1)||The mapping entity will retain the original mylar line maps prepared as described in 515-11-1-.04 hereof and will furnish each electric supplier operating in each county requested reproductions of all line maps as may be necessary to cover its service area. The completed line maps will be used by the electric suppliers as the basis for applications to the Commission for assignment or declaration of unassignment.|
|(2)||In the event that negotiations between electric suppliers in each county result in agreement on assignment or unassignment of areas as the basis for joint application to the Commission, a copy of the line map showing territorial boundaries agreed upon will be furnished to the mapping entity, who will transfer the boundaries to a duplicate of the original mylar line map. A copy of the completed area map will be furnished to each concerned electric supplier who participated in the negotiations affecting said map for verification that the information shown thereon is a true and correct representation of the results of the negotiations. Upon verification that the map is correct, the original mylar map will be presented to all concerned electric suppliers for signature certification that the information shown is correct. Upon certification by all concerned electric suppliers that the information shown on each map is correct, the concerned electric suppliers will join in an application to the Georgia Public Service Commission requesting assignment of service areas as shown on the original mylar map to be made a part of the application.|
|(1)||The electric supplier or suppliers making application for assignment or declaration of unassignment shall personally or by certified mail serve a copy of the application and all accompanying documents upon the chief executive offices of all other electric suppliers owning lines within the affected county and of all electric suppliers owning lines in each adjoining county who have lawful authority to render service in the county as to which the application pertains. Certification to this effect shall accompany each application upon its filing. Notice of the filing of each such application shall be caused by the supplier or the suppliers making the application to be published in the official county newspaper of the affected county at least twice in the three-week period immediately following filing of the application.|
|(2)||Notice of hearings by the Commission upon any application shall be served upon all such affected suppliers in the manner specified above and shall be published in the relevant county newspaper as specified.|
"Any electric supplier or any retail consumer in the area treated by the application may intervene in these proceedings in the same manner as otherwise provided in these Rules for contested cases."
In view of the Commission's encouragement of joint applications by affected suppliers, the Commission will entertain and approve reasonable agreements between suppliers relating to negotiation procedures which it finds to be in the public interest.
