SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Program, (60 FR 
54151, October 20, 1995), Western published the proposed procedures and 
call for applications in the Federal Register on October 15, 2008 (73 
FR 61109). Western held a public information and comment forum on 
November 20, 2008, to accept oral and written comments on the proposed 
procedures and call for applications. Applications for power were 
accepted at Western's Upper Great Plains Regional Office until close of 
business on January 13, 2009. On May 5, 2009, Western published the 
final procedures in the Federal Register (74 FR 20697). The proposed 
allocation of power published here is the result of applications 
received during the call for applications. Applications were subjected

    Past resource pools under the Program were established from 
withdrawals of power from existing customers. Subject to the size of 
the final allocation, Western does not intend to make a withdrawal of 
power from existing customers for the proposed Post-2010 Resource Pool 
allocation. Instead of withdrawal, Western, in accordance with 10 CFR 
905.32(e)(2) of the Program, intends to use power previously placed 
under contract and subsequently returned to Western through termination 
of that contract (Returned Power) for this proposed allocation. The 
amount of Returned Power is sufficient for the proposed allocation; 
therefore, withdrawal from existing customers may not be required. Any 
Returned Power not used to establish the Post-2010 Resource Pool for 
the final allocation will continue to be used to reduce the need to 
acquire firming resources and other uses recognized under the Program.

Availability of Information

    Documents developed or retained by Western in developing this Post-
2010 Resource Pool will be available for inspection and copying at the 
Upper Great Plains Regional Office in Billings, Montana. Written 
comments received on the proposed allocation will be available for

of the comment period.

Proposed Allocation of Power

    Western received four applications from entities interested in an 
allocation of power from the Post-2010 Resource Pool. Review of the 
applications indicated that three of the four applicants did not

The proposed allocation of power for the new eligible customer was 
calculated using the Final Post-2010 Resource Pool Allocation 
Procedures. The proposed summer allocation is 24.84413 percent of peak 
summer load; the proposed winter allocation is 35.98853 percent of peak 
winter load as defined in the Post-1985 Marketing Plan criteria, under 
the Final Post-2010 Resource Pool Allocation Procedures. The proposed 
allocation of power for the new eligible customer and the load upon
