SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) by order issued June 30, 2011 (135 FERC ¶ 62,267), confirmed and approved on a final basis Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO–1–D, SOCO–2–D, SOCO–3–D, SOCO–4–D, ALA–1–M, MISS–1–M, Duke-1–D, Duke-2–D, Duke-3–D, Duke-4–D, Santee-1–D, Santee-2–D, Santee-3–D, Santee-4–D, SCE&G–1–D, SCE&G–2–D, SCE&G–3–D, SCE&G–4–D, Pump-1–A, Pump-2, Regulation-1, and Replacement-1 applicable to GeorgiaAlabama-South Carolina System of Projects’ power for a period ending September 30, 2015. Discussion: Existing rate schedules are predicated upon a July 2010 repayment study and other supporting data. A repayment study prepared in February of 2012 shows that existing rates are not adequate to meet repayment criteria. This is due primarily to revenue from stream-flow energy that has been less than previously estimated as a result of PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 below average water conditions, and increased U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Operation & Maintenance expenses. The revised repayment study shows that a revenue increase of $21,913,000 in fiscal year 2013 and all future years over the current repayment study will result in all costs being repaid within the term of these rate schedules or their service life. Therefore, Southeastern is proposing to revise the existing rates to generate this additional revenue. The rate adjustment is an increase of about ten percent (10%) in the revenue requirement and fifteen percent (15%) in the rates for capacity and energy. Southeastern is proposing the following rate schedules to be effective for the period from October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2017.

The proposed rates for capacity, energy, and generation services are as follows: Capacity .................. Energy ..................... Generation Services $4.81 per kW per month 12.33 mills per kWh $0.12 per kW per month Under this scenario, 75 per cent of generation revenues are recovered from capacity sales and 25 per cent are recovered from energy sales. These rates are expected to produce an average revenue increase of $22,124,000 million in FY 2013 and all future years.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 
(FERC) by order issued June 30, 2011 (135 FERC ] 62,267), confirmed and 
approved on a final basis Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO-1-D, 
SOCO-2-D, SOCO-3-D, SOCO-4-D, ALA-1-M, MISS-1-M, Duke-1-D, Duke-2-D,

Regulation-1, and Replacement-1 applicable to Georgia-Alabama-South 
Carolina System of Projects' power for a period ending September 30,

    Discussion: Existing rate schedules are predicated upon a July 2010 
repayment study and other supporting data. A repayment study prepared 
in February of 2012 shows that existing rates are not adequate to meet 
repayment criteria. This is due primarily to revenue from stream-flow 
energy that has been less than previously estimated as a result of 
below average water conditions, and increased U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers Operation & Maintenance expenses.
    The revised repayment study shows that a revenue increase of 
$21,913,000 in fiscal year 2013 and all future years over the current 
repayment study will result in all costs being repaid within the term 
of these rate schedules or their service life. Therefore, Southeastern 
is proposing to revise the existing rates to generate this additional 
revenue. The rate adjustment is an increase of about ten percent (10%) 
in the revenue requirement and fifteen percent (15%) in the rates for
