ACTION: Notice of final power allocation. AGENCY: The Western Area Power Administration (Western), a Federal power marketing agency of the Department of Energy (DOE), announces its Post-2014 Resource Pool-Loveland Area Projects, Final Power Allocation developed under the requirements of SUMMARY: subpart C–Power Marketing Initiative of the Energy Planning and Management Program (Program) Final Rule, 10 CFR part 905. These final power allocations are established prior to the contractual phase of the process. Firm electric service contracts negotiated between Western and allottees will permit delivery of power from the October 2014 billing period through the September 2024 billing period. DATES: The Post-2014 Resource PoolLoveland Area Projects, Final Power Allocation will become effective November 16, 2011, and will remain in effect until September 30, 2024. ADDRESSES: Information about the Post2014 Resource Pool-Loveland Area Projects allocation procedures, including comments, letters, and other supporting documents, is available for public inspection and copying at the Rocky Mountain Customer Service Region office, Western Area Power Administration, 5555 East Crossroads Boulevard, Loveland, CO 80538–8986. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Western published the Post-2014 Resource PoolLoveland Area Projects, Allocation Procedures and Call for Applications (75 FR 78988) on December 17, 2010. These actions implement Subpart C– Power Marketing Initiative of the Program’s Final Rule. See 10 CFR part 905, (60 FR 54151, Oct. 20, 1995). The Program, developed in part to implement Section 114 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992, became effective on November 20, 1995. The Program establishes project-specific power resource pools and the allocation of power from these pools to new preference customers. The allocation procedures, in conjunction with the General Power Marketing and Allocation Criteria (51 FR 4012, January 31, 1986), establish the framework for allocating power from the Loveland Area Projects (LAP) resource pool. Western published its Post-2014 Resource Pool; Loveland Area Projects, Proposed Power Allocation (Proposed Power Allocation) and initiated a public comment period in the Federal Register (76 FR 45551, July 29, 2011). A public comment forum on the Proposed Power Allocation was held August 25, 2011. Public comments were due to Western by September 12, 2011, at 4 p.m. MDT. There were no comments received during the public comment period. I. Post-2014 Pool Resources Western will allocate up to 1 percent of the LAP long-term firm hydroelectric resource available as of October 1, 2014. The amount of the resource that will become available on October 1, 2014, is approximately 6.9 megawatts (MW) for the summer season and 6.1 MW for the winter season, and associated energy. This resource pool will be created by reducing existing customers’ allocations by up to 1 percent. II. Final Power Allocation Western received seven applications for the Post-2014 Resource Pool; Loveland Area Projects. Western determined that one applicant does not meet the Post-2014 Resource Pool; Loveland Area Projects, General Eligibility Criteria. The resource pool for capacity and energy will be allocated proportionately by season to the six qualified applicants based on seasonal loads for the period October 2009 through September 2010. The final power allocations for the six qualified allottees are shown in the table below and are subject to the minimum (100 kilowatts) and maximum allocation (5,000 kilowatts) criteria. The Winter kilowatt hours in the table below have been revised since publication of the Proposed Power Allocation to correct a calculation error.
