in the next year,

               (ii) divide the amount forecast under subclause (i)(A)

pool credit or balancing pool charge, expressed in cents per kilowatt hour,
to be distributed or collected in the next year, and

in the first 6 months of 2021,

               (ii) divide the amount forecast under subclause (i)(A)

to be distributed or collected in the period January 1, 2021 to June 30,
2021, and

               (iii)     multiply the quotient obtained under subclause (ii)
