BILLING CODE 4000–01–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Bonneville Power Administration Opportunity for Public Comment; Bonneville Power Administration Long-Term Regional Dialogue Policy Proposal Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), Department of Energy. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45799 Notice of Regional Dialogue policy proposal and opportunity for public comment. ACTION: SUMMARY: BPA is publishing a policy proposal regarding the agency’s future power supply role in the Pacific Northwest after 2011. This proposal addresses how the agency proposes to market power and distribute the costs and benefits of the Federal Columbia River Power System, which will create valuable certainty for customers over their BPA power supply. Current contracts expire in 2011, and once BPA makes basic policy decisions, it will still take at least another 16 months to negotiate new contracts and put a longterm tiered rate methodology in place. This will leave little more than three years for the region’s utilities to make and implement their plans for developing any necessary power supply. It is in the region’s best interest to proceed with implementation of this policy and to execute new contracts soon to accommodate such planning and development. A final record of decision on BPA’s policy will be issued in early 2007 after all public comments have been reviewed. DATES: Public comments will be accepted through September 29, 2006. Public meeting dates are included in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. ADDRESSES: The comment period is open through September 29, 2006. Comments can be submitted on-line at: http://www.bpa.gov/comment via e-mail to comment@bpa.gov, via mail to: Bonneville Power Administration, Public Affairs Office—DKC–7, P.O. Box 14428, Portland, Oregon, 97293–4428, or faxed to (503) 230–3285. You can also call us with your comment; toll free at (800) 622–4519. Please reference the Regional Dialogue with your comments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Helen Goodwin, Regional Dialogue project manager, at (503) 230–3129. Copies of the policy proposal are available online at http://www.bpa.gov/ power/pl/regionaldialogue/ announcements.shtml or by calling the BPA Public Information Center at (800) 622–4520.
