ACTION: Notice of proposed transmission rates. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Western Area Power Administration (Western) is proposing revised rates for the Central Arizona Project (CAP) firm point-to-point transmission service, nonfirm point-topoint transmission service, and Network Integration Transmission Service (NITS) on the CAP 115 kilovolt (kV) and 230kV transmission lines. Current rates, under Rate Schedules CAP–FT1, CAP– NFT1 and CAP–NITS1, extend through December 31, 2005. Proposed rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repay required investment within the allowable period. Western will prepare a brochure that provides detailed information on the rates to all interested parties. Proposed rates, under Rate Schedules CAP–FT2, CAP–NFT2, and CAP–NITS2, are scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2006, and will remain in effect through December 31, 2010. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rates. DATES: The consultation and comment period begins today and will end September 29, 2005. Western will present a detailed explanation of the proposed rates at a public information forum. The public information forum is: July 22, 2005, 10–12 p.m. MST, Phoenix, AZ. Western will accept oral and written comments at a public comment forum. The public comment forum will be held on the following date: August 22, 2005, 1 p.m. MST, Phoenix, AZ. ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Mr. J. Tyler Carlson, Regional Manager, Desert Southwest Customer Service Region, Western Area Power Administration, P.O. Box 6457, Phoenix, AZ 85005–6457, e-mail carlson@wapa.gov. Western will post official information about the rate process on its Web site at http:// www.wapa.gov/dsw/pwrmkt/CAPTRP/ CAPTRP.htm. Western will post official comments received via letter and e-mail to its Web site after the close of the comment period. Western must receive written comments by the end of the consultation and comment period to ensure they are considered in Western’s decision process. The public information forum and public comment forum will be held at: Western’s Desert Southwest Region (DSWR) office, 615 South 43rd Avenue, Phoenix, AZ. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Jack Murray, Rates Team Lead, Desert Southwest Customer Service Region, Western Area Power Administration, P.O. Box 6457, Phoenix, AZ 85005– 6457, telephone (602) 605–2442, e-mail jmurray@wapa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed rates for the CAP 115-kV and 230-kV transmission lines are designed to recover an annual revenue requirement that includes investment repayment, interest, operation and maintenance expense, and other expenses. The Deputy Secretary of Energy approved Rate Schedules CAP–FT1, CAP–NFT1, and CAP–NITS1 for transmission service effective January 1, 2001 (Rate Order No. WAPA–88, 65 FR 77368, December 11, 2000), and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) confirmed and approved the rate schedules on July 31, 2001, under FERC Docket No. EF01–5111–000 (96 FERC 62,094). Approval for Rate Schedules CAP–FT1, CAP–NFT1, and CAP–NITS1 covered 5 years beginning on January 1, 2001, ending on December 31, 2005. Proposed rates for point-to-point transmission service and NITS on the CAP 115BkV and 230-kV transmission lines are based on a revenue requirement that recovers the CAP 115BkV and 230-kV transmission lines costs for facilities associated with providing transmission service and the non-facilities costs allocated to transmission service. Proposed rates for point-to-point transmission service on the CAP 115-kV/230-kV transmission system are determined by combining the average annual amortization costs with the average annual operations and maintenance costs, and dividing them by the average annual contract rate of delivery for the cost evaluation period, fiscal years FY 2006–FY 2010.
