The customer population in the aggregate switching statistics file is different than that of the BGS-RSCP Eligible PLA file. Each load range in the aggregate switching statistics data is actually a mix of CIEP and RSCP customers based on their current capacity obligations, while the daily PLA file and Switching Statistics by Rate Class (in the additional data section of the data room) are based on the designation of a customer as having a PLA for a year that would qualify the customer for RSCP. The daily PLA data and the switching statistics by rate class are the best guide to actual RSCP eligible load, BGS-RSCP load, and RSCP eligible load served by TPSs recognizing the annual designation of a customer as an RSCP customer. Reported switching data provides additional, complementary information but is not constructed using the same definitions as used to determine the BGS-RSCP peak load allocation on any given day.
