(5) Kilowatt-hours consumed in the twelve months ending December 31, 1996 (which kilowatt-hours are hereby referred to as “base year sales”) by customer class multiplied by the revenue per kilowatt hour, adjusted to remove charges added to customers' bills pursuant to Sections 9-221 and 9-222 of this Act, during the twelve months ending December 31, 1996, adjusted for the reductions required by subsection (b) of Section 16-111 and the mitigation factors contained in Section 16-102. This amount shall be stated for: (i) each calendar year preceding the year in which a report is required to be submitted pursuant to subsection (b); and (ii) as a cumulative total of all calendar years beginning with 1998 and ending with the calendar year preceding the year in which a report is required to be submitted pursuant to subsection (b).

(9) Any consideration received by the electric utility from sales or transfers during the year to an affiliated interest of generating plant, or other plant that represents an investment of $25,000,000 or more in terms of total depreciated original cost, which generating or other plant were owned by the electric utility prior to December 16, 1997 (the effective date of Public Act 90-561).
(10) Any consideration received by an affiliated interest of an electric utility from sales or transfers during the year to a non-affiliated third party of generating plant, but only if: (i) the electric utility had previously sold or transferred such plant to the affiliated interest subsequent to December 16, 1997 (the effective date of Public Act 90-561); (ii) the affiliated interest sells or transfers such plant to a non-affiliated third party prior to December 31, 2006; and (iii) the affiliated interest receives consideration for the sale or transfer of such plant to the non-affiliated third party in an amount greater than the cost or price at which such plant was sold or transferred to the affiliated interest by the electric utility.
