FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Originally established by Secretarial Order No. 1865 dated August 31, 1943, Southwestern is an agency within the U.S. Department of Energy which was created by an Act of the U.S. Congress, entitled the Department of Energy Organization Act, Public Law No. 95– 91, dated August 4, 1977. Southwestern is not a public utility under sections 205 and 206 of the Federal Power Act and is not specifically subject to the requirements of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Order Nos. 888, et al. Southwestern is a transmitting utility subject to sections 205 and 211 of the Federal Power Act, as amended by the Energy Policy Acts of 1992 and 2005. Southwestern markets power from 24 multi-purpose reservoir projects with hydroelectric power facilities constructed and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. These projects are located in the States of Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1 61614 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 205 / Tuesday, October 25, 2005 / Notices Southwestern’s marketing area includes these States plus Kansas and Louisiana. Southwestern markets Federal power and energy, and owns and operates a transmission system to integrate its hydroelectric resources in order to reliably deliver such power and energy. Southwestern provides transmission services for the transmission of nonFederal power and energy across Southwestern’s transmission system only to the extent that capacity is available over and above that required to fulfill Southwestern’s mission and obligations under section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944. Nothing in the proposed tariff is intended to alter, amend, or abridge Southwestern’s statutory obligation to market Federal power and to repay the Federal investment in the hydroelectric generation projects from which it markets power as well as the investment in its associated transmission system. On March 31, 2005, Southwestern and the SPP RTO entered into an agreement, which became effective April 1, 2005, and which provides for the SPP RTO to administer Southwestern’s Tariff, provide regional reliability council services, scheduling services, operating reserve sharing, Open Access Same Time Information System (‘‘OASIS’’) administration, and reliability coordination. The agreement, accepted for filing by the Commission as SPP RTO tariff Attachment AD, also facilitates the reciprocal use of Southwestern’s and the SPP RTO’s transmission facilities and provides for Southwestern’s participation in regional transmission expansion. To provide consistency with the regional practices of the SPP RTO, Southwestern has made changes to its Tariff scheduling, transmission service application, available transmission capability, and facilities studies timing requirements. Changes have also been made to the provisions of Southwestern’s Tariff concerning generation redispatch that clarify Southwestern’s limitations in the use of its generation resources to provide redispatch under Southwestern’s Tariff. The water used to supply the energy from Southwestern’s hydroelectric generation resources is limited, and the use of such water and generation resources from Federal hydroelectric projects within congressionally authorized purposes is dictated by Federal statute. These limitations are consistent with the agreement between Southwestern and the SPP RTO. Following review of the oral and written comments and the information gathered in the course of the proceedings, the Administrator will VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:53 Oct 24, 2005 Jkt 208001 submit the finalized Tariff to the Commission and request a declaratory order that the Tariff meets Commission requirements as set forth in Commission Order No. 888, et al., to the extent consistent with applicable law. The revised Tariff is posted on Southwestern’s Web site at http:// www.swpa.gov. Southwestern must receive written comments by the end of the informal comment period to ensure they are considered in Southwestern’s filing with the Commission. Dated: October 14, 2005. Michael A.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Originally established by Secretarial Order 
No. 1865 dated August 31, 1943, Southwestern is an agency within the 
U.S. Department of Energy which was created by an Act of the U.S. 
Congress, entitled the Department of Energy Organization Act, Public 
Law No. 95-91, dated August 4, 1977. Southwestern is not a public

with hydroelectric power facilities constructed and operated by the 
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. These projects are located in the States

Southwestern's marketing area includes these States plus Kansas and 
Louisiana. Southwestern markets Federal power and energy, and owns and 
operates a transmission system to integrate its hydroelectric resources 
in order to reliably deliver such power and energy. Southwestern 
provides transmission services for the transmission of non-Federal 
power and energy across Southwestern's transmission system only to the

market Federal power and to repay the Federal investment in the 
hydroelectric generation projects from which it markets power as well 
as the investment in its associated transmission system.
    On March 31, 2005, Southwestern and the SPP RTO entered into an 
agreement, which became effective April 1, 2005, and which provides for 
the SPP RTO to administer Southwestern's Tariff, provide regional 
reliability council services, scheduling services, operating reserve 
sharing, Open Access Same Time Information System (``OASIS'')

for filing by the Commission as SPP RTO tariff Attachment AD, also 
facilitates the reciprocal use of Southwestern's and the SPP RTO's 
transmission facilities and provides for Southwestern's participation 
in regional transmission expansion. To provide consistency with the 
regional practices of the SPP RTO, Southwestern has made changes to its 
Tariff scheduling, transmission service application, available 
transmission capability, and facilities studies timing requirements. 
Changes have also been made to the provisions of Southwestern's Tariff 
concerning generation redispatch that clarify Southwestern's 
limitations in the use of its generation resources to provide 
redispatch under Southwestern's Tariff. The water used to supply the 
energy from Southwestern's hydroelectric generation resources is

Federal hydroelectric projects within congressionally authorized 
purposes is dictated by Federal statute. These limitations are 
consistent with the agreement between Southwestern and the SPP RTO.
    Following review of the oral and written comments and the 
information gathered in the course of the proceedings, the 
Administrator will submit the finalized Tariff to the Commission and 
request a declaratory order that the Tariff meets Commission 
requirements as set forth in Commission Order No. 888, et al., to the 
extent consistent with applicable law. The revised Tariff is posted on 
Southwestern's Web site at http://www.swpa.gov. Southwestern must 
receive written comments by the end of the informal comment period to 
ensure they are considered in Southwestern's filing with the 
Commission.
