Download as PDF 57352 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 192 / Thursday, October 2, 2008 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES $815,580 is insufficient to produce the annual revenues necessary to accomplish repayment as required by Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944 and Department of Energy (DOE) Order No. RA 6120.2. The increased revenue requirement is due to an increase in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) projected operations and maintenance costs. The Revised PRS indicates that an increase in annual revenues of $113,808 beginning October 1, 2008, is sufficient to accomplish repayment of the Federal investment in the required number of years. Accordingly, Southwestern developed a proposed rate schedule based on that increased revenue requirement. Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations, ‘‘Procedures for Public Participation in Power and Transmission Rate Adjustments and Extensions,’’ has been followed in connection with the proposed rate adjustment. More specifically, opportunities for public review and comment during a 30-day period on the proposed Willis power rate were announced by a Federal Register (73 FR 45435) notice published on August 5, 2008. The combined Public Information and Comment Forum scheduled for August 13, 2008, in Tulsa, Oklahoma was canceled as no one expressed an intent to participate. Written comments were due by September 4, 2008. Southwestern provided the Federal Register notice, together with requested supporting data, to the customer and interested parties for review and comment during the formal period of public participation. In addition, prior to the formal 30-day public participation process, Southwestern discussed with the customer representatives the preliminary information on the proposed rate adjustment. Only one formal comment was received during the public process. That comment, on behalf of SRMPA, Sam Rayburn Dam Electric Cooperative, and the Vinton Public Power Authority, expressed no objection to the final proposed rate. Upon conclusion of the comment period in September 2008, Southwestern finalized the PRS and rate schedule for the proposed annual rate of $929,388 which is the lowest possible rate needed to satisfy repayment criteria. This rate represents an annual increase of 14.0 percent. Availability of Information Information regarding this rate increase, including studies and other supporting material, is available for public review and comment in the offices of Southwestern Power VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:52 Oct 01, 2008 Jkt 217001 Administration, One West Third Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74103. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Comments and Responses [EPA–HQ–OECA–2008–0433; FRL–8724–3] Southwestern received one written comment in which the customer representative expressed no objection to the proposed rate adjustment. Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission to OMB for Review and Approval; Comment Request; NESHAP for Carbon Black, Ethylene, Cyanide, and Spandex (Renewal), EPA ICR Number 1983.05, OMB Control Number 2060–0489 Other Issues There were no other issues raised during the informal discussions or during the formal public participation period. Administrator’s Certification The 2008 Revised Willis PRS indicates that the annual power rate of $929,388 will repay all costs of the project, including amortization of the power investment consistent with provisions of the Department of Energy (DOE) Order No. RA 6120.2. In accordance with Delegation Order Nos. 00–037.00 (December 6, 2001) and 00– 001.00C (January 31, 2007), and Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, the Administrator has determined that the proposed Willis power rate is consistent with applicable law and the lowest possible rate consistent with sound business principles. Environment The environmental impact of the rate increase proposal was evaluated in consideration of DOE’s guidelines for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, 10 CFR 1021, and was determined to fall within the class of actions that are categorically excluded from the requirements of preparing either an Environmental Impact Statement or an Environmental Assessment. Order In view of the foregoing and pursuant to the authority delegated to me, I hereby confirm, approve and place in effect on an interim basis, for the period October 1, 2008, through September 30, 2012, the annual Robert Douglas Willis Hydropower Rate of $929,388 for the sale of power and energy from Robert Douglas Willis project to the Sam Rayburn Municipal Power Agency, under Contract No. DE–PM75– 85SW00117, as amended. This rate shall remain in effect on an interim basis through September 30, 2012, or until the FERC confirms and approves the rate on a final basis. Dated: September 25, 2008.
