Board of Scientific Counselors, Land Research Program Mid-Cycle Review Meetings-Spring 2008, 38448-38449 [E8-15339]

Download as PDF 38448 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 130 / Monday, July 7, 2008 / Notices Comment: Western should require the identical terms and conditions in new customers’ contracts to those of existing firm power customers. If withdrawals are made in the future, reductions should be applied to all firm power contract holders. Response: All of the RMR’s firm electric service contracts provide for future withdrawals according to the Program. New firm electric service customers will be subject to those same terms. Thus, they will be subject to any future withdrawals to create a resource pool under the Program. Use of the Post-2009 Resource Pool Based on the letters of interest and the comments noted above, Western has determined the resource pool should be made available to new preference customers only and not for other appropriate purposes. Allocations to new preference customers shall be made in accordance with the Post-1989 Marketing Plan and the Program. Western intends to carry forward the key principles and the general eligibility and allocation criteria established in its Post-2004 Resource Pool procedures. Western will publish a separate Federal Register notice identifying the procedures and requesting applications from potential new eligible preference customers. Note that those who have previously expressed an interest in an allocation of LAP Federal power must submit an application to be considered for an allocation. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act Western completed an environmental impact statement on the Program, pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The Record of Decision was published in the Federal Register on October 12, 1995 (60 FR 53181). Western will comply with any additional NEPA requirements for this resource pool. Dated: June 26, 2008.
