We set the initial parameters for the MPR in D.03-06-071. We first developed the method for calculating the MPR in D.04-06-015. In D.05-12-042, we expanded and stabilized the methodology for calculating the MPR. This methodology has been used for the 2005 MPR (Resolution E-3980 (April 13, 2006)) and the 2006 MPR (Resolution E-4049 (December 14, 2006)).
