(1) A description and map of the UDC service area, including a discussion of any recent or expected changes to the service area;
(2) Presentation of the demographic and economic assumptions that under-lie the forecast, including assumptions about geographic changes in the distribution service area or movement of customers to or from other LSEs;
(3) Forecasted demand for each year of the forecast for the UDC's bundled customers, and for all customers for whom the UDC provides distribution services, each accounting for conservation reasonably expected to occur, beginning with the year in which the forecast is submitted, including:
(A) annual energy and peak demand;
(B) Hourly loads; and
(C) The annual energy demand forecast and peak demand forecast presented by major customer sector.
(4) Plausibility, sensitivity, and alternative economic scenario analyses;
(5) Estimation of the additional cost-effective conservation potential and the impact of possible methods to achieve this potential, and a description of each conservation activity carried out by the UDC and those proposed for future implementation;
(6) UDCs that are also Electric Transmission System Owners shall provide forecast load data for transmission subareas, as defined in Section 1344(e)(5), and

(2) Presentation of the demographic and economic assumptions that under-lie the forecast, including assumptions about geographic changes in the service area or movement of customers to or from other utilities;
(3) Forecasted demand for each year of the forecast, accounting for conservation reasonably expected to occur, beginning with the year in which the forecast is submitted, including:
(A) Annual and monthly energy demand, and annual peak demand; and
(B) The annual energy forecast and peak forecast presented by major customer sector.
(4) Plausibility, sensitivity, and alternative economic scenario analyses;
(5) Estimation of the additional cost-effective conservation potential and the impact of possible methods to achieve this potential, and a description of each conservation activity carried out by the gas utility and those proposed for future implementation; and
