DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY DEPUTY SECRETARY In the Matter of: Southeastern Power Administration, Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System Power Rates Rate Order No. SEPA–53. ORDER CONFIRMING AND APPROVING POWER RATES ON AN INTERIM BASIS Pursuant to Sections 302(a) of the Department of Energy Organization Act, Public Law 95–91, the functions of the Secretary of the Interior and the Federal Power Commission under Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, 16 U.S.C. 825s, relating to the Southeastern Power Administration (Southeastern), were transferred to and vested in the Secretary of Energy. By Delegation Order No. 00–037.00, effective December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy delegated to Southeastern’s Administrator the authority to develop power and transmission rates, to the Deputy Secretary of Energy the authority to confirm, approve, and place in effect such rates on interim basis, and to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) the authority to confirm, approve, and place into effect on a final basis or to disapprove rates developed by the Administrator under the delegation. This rate is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to that delegation order. Background Power from the Georgia-AlabamaSouth Carolina Projects is presently sold under Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO–1–C, SOCO–2–C, SOCO–3–C, SOCO–4–C, ALA–1–L, MISS–1–L, Duke–1–C, Duke–2–C, Duke–3–C, Duke–4–C, Santee–1–C, Santee–2–C, Santee–3–C, Santee–4–C, SCE&G–1–C, SCE&G–2–C, SCE&G–3–C, SCE&G–4–C, Pump–1–A, Pump–2, Replacement–1, and Regulation–1. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC in docket number EF07–3011–000 on April 8, 2008, for a period ending September 30, 2012 (123 FERC ¶ 62,022). Public Notice and Comment Notice of proposed rate adjustment was published in the Federal Register March 17, 2010, (75 FR 12740). The notice advised interested parties of a proposed rate increase of about fifteen percent (15%). By notice published in the Federal Register March 24, 2010, (75 FR 14150) a public information and comment forum was scheduled for April 27, 2010, in Atlanta, Georgia. Written comments were accepted on or before June 15, 2010. Comments were received from six parties at the forum. Written comments were received from 12 sources pursuant to this notice. There have been numerous comments about the level of rate increases. We are providing the following table and explanation to try to minimize the confusion about several numbers.

Evaluation Southeastern believes that the customers will need to look at each of their respective positions. Their VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:51 Oct 05, 2010 Jkt 223001 situations vary and Southeastern is not in a position to evaluate whether or not each customer should continue to purchase Federal power. Southeastern has made a cursory study reviewing the average cost of Federal power for each customer. The study shows that some customers at present rates are paying costs that are greater than what the power would cost PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4703 15 20–25 31 40 Proposed rate increase now 9.6 13–15 23 32–34 on the market under average water conditions. The average cost of power for these customers under minimum water conditions (drought conditions) is much higher than what they could purchase at market. Southeastern is unaware of arrangements the customers currently have to purchase the remainder of their needs and is unaware E:\FR\FM\06OCN3.SGM 06OCN3 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 193 / Wednesday, October 6, 2010 / Notices 61961 if purchasing power on the market is an option for them. The increase of Southeastern rates by 13%–15% without the Disputed Costs, or 32%–34% with the Disputed Costs, will have a negative impact on these customers. We do not know if the customers will choose to cancel their contracts. Southeastern believes that most of the customers’ costs are less than market, even with the 13%–15% increase or the 32%–34% rate increase; therefore, Southeastern will be able to market its power in the foreseeable future. While there is no purpose for litigation costs authorized by Congress in the legislation for the Corps’ multiple-purpose projects, Southeastern believes the costs should be allocated by the Corps to the Environmental Purpose (see 5 below). Comment 6 Comment 4 Comment 2 The Interest During Construction costs is inappropriately named and should be called Disputed Costs. Evaluation The customers argue that Congress never explicitly authorized the installation of the Richard Russell pump units, and that appropriations bills cannot provide such authorization here. The District Court’s ruling granting summary judgment seems to agree to some extent with this interpretation, found no explicit Congressional authorization, but held that Congress was adequately informed, and, by ongoing appropriations actions, the Corps was so authorized. Order, pp. 21– 27. Also, the Court stated, ‘‘The pumped storage units at the Russell Dam are currently in place. Their installation was authorized by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which left to the district court the decision of when and if the operation of these units should be granted.’’ Order, pp. 16–17. The customers also point out that RA 6120.2 includes only ‘‘investments that are both authorized and for which appropriations have been made.’’ They argue and provide strong legal authorities that funding bills do not authorize Corps actions. The customers concluded, ‘‘These concerns provide suitable grounds and appropriate legal guidance for SEPA to follow in excluding the IDC expense from the rate proposal.’’ Southeastern agrees that we have the authority to exclude the costs from the rates. Evaluation The customers argue that Interest During Construction (IDC) ends when the project is ready to be placed in service. In the Richard B. Russell (Russell) pump units case, that would be in 1993. Additionally, they argue that the interest expense should begin when the pump units are placed in service. This creates a hiatus where the costs are neither IDC nor expensed interest. In the Russell pump units case, that would be from 1993 to 2002. Southeastern has decided to exclude these costs. The amount of these costs is $223,733,000. The interest on that interest from 2003 to 2009 is $115,466,000 for a total of $339,198,000. Southeastern has decided to call these costs ‘‘Disputed Cost,’’ and agrees that calling them ‘‘Interest During Construction’’ is confusing. Southeastern agrees these costs should be excluded from the proposed rates. Comment 3 The Disputed Costs should be a cost allocated to litigation costs. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES3 Evaluation The customers argue that the Corps had a litigation strategy which mishandled the lawsuit. The litigation did result in a long hiatus during which the Russell pump units were operational, but could not be used. While the Corps was ultimately able to prove that there were no adverse environmental consequences of the Russell pump units, the projects have never operated at peak capability, partially because of the hiatus when they were available for operation but were not allowed to operate. The only costs the customers are asking to not be included are the Disputed Costs referred to above. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:51 Oct 05, 2010 Jkt 223001 Southeastern has the authority by the Flood Control Act of 1944 to not include the Disputed Costs. It has the authority because of the language ‘‘* * * lowest possible rates consistent with sound business principles.’’ The customers argue that the Flood Control Act of 1944 gives Southeastern the authority to examine all the costs and only include those costs that are the lowest possible, consistent with sound business principles. Southeastern agrees that the Flood Control Act of 1944 does give us that authority. Comment 5 The Disputed Costs should be allocated to the Environmental Purpose. Evaluation The customers argue that the Disputed Costs should be allocated to the Environmental Purpose. They point out the entire lawsuit that caused the delays was to determine whether or not the Russell pump units would damage the environment. The Judge’s Order of Summary Judgment quotes the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals: ‘‘(p)umped storage poses a major environmental concern because of the risk that while operating in the pumping mode the turbines may ‘entrain’ or kill a large number of fish or fish eggs.’’ South Carolina Department of Wildlife and Marine Resources vs. Marsh, 886 F.2d at 99. Order, p. 17. It goes on to say, ‘‘In order to prevail on its motions, the Corps must show, and this court must find, that these units can be operated at minimum risk to the fish habitat at the Russell Dam.’’ In addition, the General Accounting Office (GAO) Report to Congressional Requesters, Federal Electricity Activities, cited by the customers, was very concerned that if the Richard Russell Project was not allowed to operate because of the lawsuit, that the Federal government will lose its entire $518 million investment. Southeastern believes it would be proper for the Disputed Costs to be allocated to the Environmental Purpose and not allocated to power. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4703 Richard Russell pump units were not authorized by Congress. RA 6120.2 allows that only authorized investments can be included. Evaluation Comment 7 The estimated Corps O&M costs that were used in the proposed rate should be updated for more recent estimates. Evaluation The customers pointed out that Corps projections from 2009 were higher than Corps projections from 2010. Southeastern agrees with the request that more recent estimates be used in the rate filing and the proposed rates now include those reduced projections. The reduction in the rate from 21% at the time of the forum to 13% now is partially because of this change. Comment 8 Revenues for Fiscal Year 2010 have been higher than average and the repayment study should increase the revenues for FY 2010. E:\FR\FM\06OCN3.SGM 06OCN3 61962 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 193 / Wednesday, October 6, 2010 / Notices Evaluation Generally, a repayment study is developed with an assumption that average water conditions will prevail through the end of the repayment period. The revenues for Fiscal Year 2010 through May have been 115% of average. The increased revenue of the increase would be approximately $4.8 million. This would increase the estimated revenue for fiscal year 2010 by less than three percent (3%) and have a minor impact on the rate study. It is also difficult to estimate that the revenues would continue to be that high because it is difficult to estimate if this above average rainfall will continue through the end of the fiscal year. Southeastern has not modified the rate proposal for increased revenue in 2010. Comment 9 The unpaid deficit at the end of 2009 should be deferred. Evaluation Southeastern has agreed with this comment in the development of these proposed rates. In the past, Southeastern has deferred the payment of a deficit until the end of cost evaluation period which, in this case, would be FY 2015, or the final year the rates are requested to be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The result of deferring this cost would be to move the pinch point of the repayment. Under the rates proposed at the time of the rate forum, the pinch point is the fiscal year when a sizeable payment is required to be paid. By RA 6120.2, the deficit should be paid prior to that required repayment. RA 6120.2 also allows Southeastern to defer that payment for unusual circumstances. Southeastern has agreed with the customers in the proposed rates. Southeastern feels this deferral is the primary reason the rate increase was reduced from the 21% at the time of the forum to 13% in these proposed rates. Discussion srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES3 System Repayment An examination of Southeastern’s revised system power repayment study, prepared in July 2010, for the GeorgiaAlabama-South Carolina System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are paid within the appropriate repayment period required by existing law and DOE Procedure RA 6120.2. The Administrator of Southeastern Power Administration has certified that the rates are consistent with applicable law and that they are the lowest possible rates to customers VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:51 Oct 05, 2010 Jkt 223001 consistent with sound business principles. Environmental Impact Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the adjusted rates would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, the proposed action is not a major Federal action for which preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is required. Availability of Information Information regarding these rates, including studies and other supporting materials and transcripts of the public information and comment forum, is available for public review in the offices of Southeastern Power Administration, 1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton, Georgia 30635, and in the Power Marketing Liaison Office, James Forrestal Building, 1000 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC 20585.

Public Notice and Comment

    Notice of proposed rate adjustment was published in the Federal 
Register March 17, 2010, (75 FR 12740). The notice advised interested 
parties of a proposed rate increase of about fifteen percent (15%). By 
notice published in the Federal Register March 24, 2010, (75 FR 14150) 
a public information and comment forum was scheduled for April 27, 
2010, in Atlanta, Georgia. Written comments were accepted on or before 
June 15, 2010. Comments were received from six parties at the forum. 
Written comments were received from 12 sources pursuant to this notice.
    There have been numerous comments about the level of rate 
increases. We are providing the following table and explanation to try 
to minimize the confusion about several numbers.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Comment 1

    With the current proposed rate increase, customers will need to 
evaluate whether or not to continue to purchase Southeastern power.

Evaluation

    Southeastern believes that the customers will need to look at each 
of their respective positions. Their situations vary and Southeastern 
is not in a position to evaluate whether or not each customer should 
continue to purchase Federal power.
    Southeastern has made a cursory study reviewing the average cost of 
Federal power for each customer. The study shows that some customers at 
present rates are paying costs that are greater than what the power 
would cost on the market under average water conditions. The average 
cost of power for these customers under minimum water conditions 
(drought conditions) is much higher than what they could purchase at 
market. Southeastern is unaware of arrangements the customers currently 
have to purchase the remainder of their needs and is unaware

[[Page 61961]]

if purchasing power on the market is an option for them.
    The increase of Southeastern rates by 13%-15% without the Disputed 
Costs, or 32%-34% with the Disputed Costs, will have a negative impact 
on these customers. We do not know if the customers will choose to 
cancel their contracts.
    Southeastern believes that most of the customers' costs are less 
than market, even with the 13%-15% increase or the 32%-34% rate 
increase; therefore, Southeastern will be able to market its power in 
the foreseeable future.

Comment 2

    The Interest During Construction costs is inappropriately named and 
should be called Disputed Costs.

Evaluation

    The customers argue that Interest During Construction (IDC) ends 
when the project is ready to be placed in service. In the Richard B. 
Russell (Russell) pump units case, that would be in 1993. Additionally, 
they argue that the interest expense should begin when the pump units 
are placed in service. This creates a hiatus where the costs are 
neither IDC nor expensed interest. In the Russell pump units case, that 
would be from 1993 to 2002. Southeastern has decided to exclude these 
costs. The amount of these costs is $223,733,000. The interest on that 
interest from 2003 to 2009 is $115,466,000 for a total of $339,198,000.
    Southeastern has decided to call these costs ``Disputed Cost,'' and 
agrees that calling them ``Interest During Construction'' is confusing.
    Southeastern agrees these costs should be excluded from the 
proposed rates.

Comment 3

    The Disputed Costs should be a cost allocated to litigation costs.

Evaluation

    The customers argue that the Corps had a litigation strategy which 
mishandled the lawsuit.
    The litigation did result in a long hiatus during which the Russell 
pump units were operational, but could not be used. While the Corps was 
ultimately able to prove that there were no adverse environmental 
consequences of the Russell pump units, the projects have never 
operated at peak capability, partially because of the hiatus when they 
were available for operation but were not allowed to operate. The only 
costs the customers are asking to not be included are the Disputed 
Costs referred to above.
    While there is no purpose for litigation costs authorized by 
Congress in the legislation for the Corps' multiple-purpose projects, 
Southeastern believes the costs should be allocated by the Corps to the 
Environmental Purpose (see 5 below).

Comment 4

    Southeastern has the authority by the Flood Control Act of 1944 to 
not include the Disputed Costs. It has the authority because of the 
language ``* * * lowest possible rates consistent with sound business 
principles.''

Evaluation

    The customers argue that the Flood Control Act of 1944 gives 
Southeastern the authority to examine all the costs and only include 
those costs that are the lowest possible, consistent with sound 
business principles.
    Southeastern agrees that the Flood Control Act of 1944 does give us 
that authority.

Comment 5

    The Disputed Costs should be allocated to the Environmental 
Purpose.

Evaluation

    The customers argue that the Disputed Costs should be allocated to 
the Environmental Purpose. They point out the entire lawsuit that 
caused the delays was to determine whether or not the Russell pump 
units would damage the environment.
    The Judge's Order of Summary Judgment quotes the Fourth Circuit 
Court of Appeals: ``(p)umped storage poses a major environmental 
concern because of the risk that while operating in the pumping mode 
the turbines may `entrain' or kill a large number of fish or fish 
eggs.'' South Carolina Department of Wildlife and Marine Resources vs. 
Marsh, 886 F.2d at 99. Order, p. 17.
    It goes on to say, ``In order to prevail on its motions, the Corps 
must show, and this court must find, that these units can be operated 
at minimum risk to the fish habitat at the Russell Dam.''
    In addition, the General Accounting Office (GAO) Report to 
Congressional Requesters, Federal Electricity Activities, cited by the 
customers, was very concerned that if the Richard Russell Project was 
not allowed to operate because of the lawsuit, that the Federal 
government will lose its entire $518 million investment.
    Southeastern believes it would be proper for the Disputed Costs to 
be allocated to the Environmental Purpose and not allocated to power.

Comment 6

    Richard Russell pump units were not authorized by Congress. RA 
6120.2 allows that only authorized investments can be included.

Evaluation

    The customers argue that Congress never explicitly authorized the 
installation of the Richard Russell pump units, and that appropriations 
bills cannot provide such authorization here. The District Court's 
ruling granting summary judgment seems to agree to some extent with 
this interpretation, found no explicit Congressional authorization, but 
held that Congress was adequately informed, and, by ongoing 
appropriations actions, the Corps was so authorized. Order, pp. 21-27. 
Also, the Court stated, ``The pumped storage units at the Russell Dam 
are currently in place. Their installation was authorized by the Fourth 
Circuit Court of Appeals, which left to the district court the decision 
of when and if the operation of these units should be granted.'' Order, 
pp. 16-17.
    The customers also point out that RA 6120.2 includes only 
``investments that are both authorized and for which appropriations 
have been made.''
    They argue and provide strong legal authorities that funding bills 
do not authorize Corps actions. The customers concluded, ``These 
concerns provide suitable grounds and appropriate legal guidance for 
SEPA to follow in excluding the IDC expense from the rate proposal.''
    Southeastern agrees that we have the authority to exclude the costs 
from the rates.

Comment 7

    The estimated Corps O&M costs that were used in the proposed rate 
should be updated for more recent estimates.

Evaluation

    The customers pointed out that Corps projections from 2009 were 
higher than Corps projections from 2010. Southeastern agrees with the 
request that more recent estimates be used in the rate filing and the 
proposed rates now include those reduced projections. The reduction in 
the rate from 21% at the time of the forum to 13% now is partially 
because of this change.

Comment 8

    Revenues for Fiscal Year 2010 have been higher than average and the 
repayment study should increase the revenues for FY 2010.

[[Page 61962]]

Evaluation

    Generally, a repayment study is developed with an assumption that 
average water conditions will prevail through the end of the repayment 
period. The revenues for Fiscal Year 2010 through May have been 115% of 
average. The increased revenue of the increase would be approximately 
$4.8 million. This would increase the estimated revenue for fiscal year 
2010 by less than three percent (3%) and have a minor impact on the 
rate study. It is also difficult to estimate that the revenues would 
continue to be that high because it is difficult to estimate if this 
above average rainfall will continue through the end of the fiscal 
year. Southeastern has not modified the rate proposal for increased 
revenue in 2010.

Comment 9

    The unpaid deficit at the end of 2009 should be deferred.

Evaluation

    Southeastern has agreed with this comment in the development of 
these proposed rates. In the past, Southeastern has deferred the 
payment of a deficit until the end of cost evaluation period which, in 
this case, would be FY 2015, or the final year the rates are requested 
to be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The result 
of deferring this cost would be to move the pinch point of the 
repayment. Under the rates proposed at the time of the rate forum, the 
pinch point is the fiscal year when a sizeable payment is required to 
be paid. By RA 6120.2, the deficit should be paid prior to that 
required repayment. RA 6120.2 also allows Southeastern to defer that 
payment for unusual circumstances. Southeastern has agreed with the 
customers in the proposed rates. Southeastern feels this deferral is 
the primary reason the rate increase was reduced from the 21% at the 
time of the forum to 13% in these proposed rates.

Discussion

System Repayment

    An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment 
study, prepared in July 2010, for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina 
System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are 
paid within the appropriate repayment period required by existing law 
and DOE Procedure RA 6120.2. The Administrator of Southeastern Power 
Administration has certified that the rates are consistent with 
applicable law and that they are the lowest possible rates to customers 
consistent with sound business principles.

Environmental Impact

    Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the 
rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the 
adjusted rates would not significantly affect the quality of the human 
environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act 
of 1969, the proposed action is not a major Federal action for which 
preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is required.
