Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program-Eastern Division-Rate Order No. WAPA-188
Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) proposes new formula rates for the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin ProgramEastern Division (P- SMBPED) transmission and ancillary services. These rates will be used by WAPA's Upper Great Plains Region (UGP) to provide rate data to the Southwest Power Pool, Inc. (SPP), the Regional Transmission Organization of which UGP is a member. The existing rates for services expire on September 30, 2020. The proposed rates should not result in increased overall costs to customers compared to the current formula rates because the increase to the Operating Reserves rate is expected to be offset by a similar reduction in the transmission rate.
