DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY DEPUTY SECRETARY In the Matter of: Southeastern Power Administration), Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System Power Rates Rate Order No. SEPA–56 srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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-Alabama-South Carolina Projects is presently sold under 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, Replacement–1, and Regulation–1. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC in docket number EF10–11–000 on June 20, 2011, for a period ending September 30, 2015 (135 FERC ¶ 62,267). VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:06 Sep 10, 2012 Jkt 226001 Public Notice and Comment Notice of a proposed rate adjustment was published in the Federal Register March 7, 2012 (77 FR 13594). The notice advised interested parties of a proposed increase in the capacity and energy rates of about fifteen percent (15%). The proposed increase in the revenue requirement was about ten percent (10%) and the increase in the capacity and energy rates was about fifteen percent (15%). A public information and comment forum was scheduled for April 24, 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia. By notice published June 8, 2012, (77 FR 34037) the comment period was extended to June 19, 2012. Comments were received from four parties at the forum. Written comments were received from one source. Comments received from interested parties are summarized below. Southeastern’s response follows each comment. Comment 1: The proposed rate increase brings the rates for SEPA energy closer to or above prevailing market rates in the Southeast. It simply makes no sense to pay above-market rates for the SEPA energy when less expensive alternatives are available. SEPA is in danger of pricing itself out of the market. Response 1: Southeastern believes that each customer should look at their respective situations. Southeastern is not in a position to evaluate whether or not each customer should continue to purchase federal power. Under section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, Southeastern is required to develop rate schedules that recover the cost of producing and transmitting the power it markets. The proposed rate schedules were developed to meet this criterion. Southeastern believes that these rates will be competitive with alternative resources. Contract provisions between Southeastern and the preference customers allow any customer to cancel their contract with Southeastern when Southeastern adjusts the rate schedules. Thus far, no customer has notified Southeastern of their intent to cancel their contract. Southeastern is concerned the cost of federal power is approaching, and in some cases exceeding, the cost of alternative resources. Southeastern will work in partnership with the customers and the generating agency to manage the cost of federal power. Comment 2: We [the SeFPC] want to initiate a dialogue with SEPA relating to its strategy for using pumped storage facilities and, in particular, the acquisition of energy for pumping operations at the Carters and Russell projects. Also, cost savings could be achieved if we revisit how replacement energy is secured and whether scheduling practices could help lower the overall rate. Response 2: Southeastern currently uses a bidding process for both pumping and replacement energy. Energy is purchased in accordance with the provisions of power purchase contracts or under the terms of utility tariffs. A bidding process is followed and the weekly or daily purchase requirement is awarded based upon the lowest cost to the Government. New bidders can be accepted at any time by implementing a power purchase contract. Currently PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Southeastern has a number of customers participating in the bidding process, and is always willing to participate in dialogs, consistent with applicable law, to improve the efficiency of the process or find lower cost alternatives. Comment 3: The proposed rate will overrecover $53 million at the end of five years. Response 3: The proposed rate schedules are designed to recover all capitalized deficits within the five-year term of the schedules. If the estimates used in this rate study are achieved through operating results, there will be about $53 million available for repayment of the federal investment in fiscal year 2017. Under the Flood Control Act of 1944, rate schedules are to recover the amortization of capital investment over a reasonable period of years. Approval of the proposed rate schedules is requested for a period of five years. However, contract provisions allow rate schedules to be adjusted October 1 of any year. Should operating results exceed expectations and lead to accelerated recovery of costs, new rate schedules can be proposed before the term of these rate schedules expires. Comment 4: SEPA could defer any rate increase until the following fiscal year, beginning in 2014. Response 4: Two projects in the GeorgiaAlabama-South Carolina System are reaching their fiftieth year of operation in fiscal year 2013. These are the Hartwell Project and the Walter F. George Project. The total investment due to be repaid in fiscal year 2013 is almost $80 million. Deferring this rate adjustment could create unacceptably large capitalized deficits. Deferring this rate adjustment to a later date would lead to a much more dramatic rate adjustment at a later date. Comment 5: SEPA could institute a temporary or one-year rate increase to introduce a new repayment study next year that would have the effect of lowering the overall rate in coming years. This option allows SEPA to make the required repayments in 2013 with customers’ understanding that it is a one-year increase and not a five-year commitment. Response 5: A one-year rate increase would require that Southeastern file another rate adjustment in fiscal year 2013. Although approval of the proposed rate schedules is sought for a five-year period, new rate schedules can be proposed while these rate schedules are in effect. Comment 6: [The Customers] understand that a significant contributor to the need for a rate increase is the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funds spent by the Corps of Engineers over the last few years. It is [The Customers] understanding that a significant portion of these funds were expensed and not capitalized, leading to the department to recover the costs through rates immediately. Response 6: The Corps provides estimates of O&M expenses and capitalized items that Southeastern uses in every rate adjustment. In the rate adjustment for the GeorgiaAlabama-South Carolina System filed in 2010, the Corps included estimated costs that would be funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). At E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1 srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2012 / Notices the time, the Corps expected these costs to be capitalized. However, subsequent accounting decisions determined these costs should be appropriately expensed. Southeastern and the Customers have reviewed the accounting for these costs and have not discovered material errors. Southeastern will continue to work with the Corps and the Customers to ensure costs are appropriately charged to hydropower. Comment 7: The Customers ask SEPA to provide updates on rate levels and associated recovery starting in 2014 and subsequent years to assess whether the rate as designed collects revenues in excess of required payments. Response 7: The Flood Control Act of 1944 requires Southeastern to recover the cost of producing and transmitting energy, including the amortization of capital investment allocated to power over a reasonable period of years. If the estimates used in the rate study are higher than the actual costs incurred, the variance is applied to cost recovery. As such, Southeastern would meet its required payments early, but would not over-recover costs. Under DOE Order RA6120.2, Southeastern is required to update the repayment studies annually. The Customer may request these updates by contacting Virgil Hobbs, Assistant Administrator, Finance and Marketing, Southeastern Power Administration, Department of Energy, 1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton, Georgia 30635–4578, (706) 213–3800. Southeastern will continue to work with the Customers to ensure appropriate cost recovery and reporting. Comment 8: Although it is possible revenues for 2012 may be lower than expected, there has been no discussion or evidence put forth that would support a decision by SEPA to raise rates above the levels published in the Federal Register notice. Indeed, with documentation that the rate could recover more than what is needed for the required payments in later years, the record for the proposed rate supports the proposed rate adjustment and nothing higher. If SEPA sought to deviate from the proposed rate as set forth in the Federal Register notice, the Customers would ask SEPA to re-open the public process and allow the Customers to submit comments accordingly. Failure to do so would deprive the hydropower customers the due process otherwise guaranteed in the revision of power rates. Response 8: SEPA has adopted the proposed rate schedules. Comment 9: The Customers would encourage SEPA representatives to further engage their counterparts at the Corps to follow through on the statutory obligation for setting rates and ensuring fairness in setting the rates. Small changes in the allocation of O&M expenses can provide substantial savings for the hydropower customers over an extended period if those expenses are properly classified. Response 9: SEPA will continue to work with the Customers and the Corps to ensure proper accounting of costs to hydropower.

DISCUSSION System Repayment An examination of Southeastern’s revised system power repayment study, prepared in July 2012, for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are paid within the term of these rate schedules. 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 Applicability: This rate schedule shall be applicable to the sale at wholesale of power and accompanying energy generated at the Allatoona, Buford, J. Strom Thurmond, Walter F. George, Hartwell, Millers Ferry, West Point, Robert F. Henry, Carters and Richard B. Russell Projects and sold under appropriate contracts between the Government and the Customer. This rate schedule does not apply to energy from pumping operations at the Carters and Richard B. Russell Projects. 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. Character of Service: The electric capacity and energy supplied hereunder will be delivered at the delivery points of the Customer on the Company’s transmission and distribution system.

Rate Order No. SEPA-56

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-Alabama-South Carolina Projects is 
presently sold under 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, 
Replacement-1, and Regulation-1. These rate schedules were approved 
by the FERC in docket number EF10-11-000 on June 20, 2011, for a 
period ending September 30, 2015 (135 FERC ] 62,267).

Public Notice and Comment

    Notice of a proposed rate adjustment was published in the 
Federal Register March 7, 2012 (77 FR 13594). The notice advised 
interested parties of a proposed increase in the capacity and energy 
rates of about fifteen percent (15%). The proposed increase in the 
revenue requirement was about ten percent (10%) and the increase in 
the capacity and energy rates was about fifteen percent (15%). A 
public information and comment forum was scheduled for April 24, 
2012, in Atlanta, Georgia. By notice published June 8, 2012, (77 FR 
34037) the comment period was extended to June 19, 2012. Comments 
were received from four parties at the forum. Written comments were 
received from one source.
    Comments received from interested parties are summarized below. 
Southeastern's response follows each comment.
    Comment 1: The proposed rate increase brings the rates for SEPA 
energy closer to or above prevailing market rates in the Southeast. 
It simply makes no sense to pay above-market rates for the SEPA 
energy when less expensive alternatives are available. SEPA is in 
danger of pricing itself out of the market.
    Response 1: Southeastern believes that each customer should look 
at their respective situations. Southeastern is not in a position to 
evaluate whether or not each customer should continue to purchase 
federal power.
    Under section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, Southeastern 
is required to develop rate schedules that recover the cost of 
producing and transmitting the power it markets. The proposed rate 
schedules were developed to meet this criterion. Southeastern 
believes that these rates will be competitive with alternative 
resources.
    Contract provisions between Southeastern and the preference 
customers allow any customer to cancel their contract with 
Southeastern when Southeastern adjusts the rate schedules. Thus far, 
no customer has notified Southeastern of their intent to cancel 
their contract.
    Southeastern is concerned the cost of federal power is 
approaching, and in some cases exceeding, the cost of alternative 
resources. Southeastern will work in partnership with the customers 
and the generating agency to manage the cost of federal power.
    Comment 2: We [the SeFPC] want to initiate a dialogue with SEPA 
relating to its strategy for using pumped storage facilities and, in 
particular, the acquisition of energy for pumping operations at the 
Carters and Russell projects. Also, cost savings could be achieved 
if we revisit how replacement energy is secured and whether 
scheduling practices could help lower the overall rate.
    Response 2: Southeastern currently uses a bidding process for 
both pumping and replacement energy. Energy is purchased in 
accordance with the provisions of power purchase contracts or under 
the terms of utility tariffs. A bidding process is followed and the 
weekly or daily purchase requirement is awarded based upon the 
lowest cost to the Government. New bidders can be accepted at any 
time by implementing a power purchase contract. Currently 
Southeastern has a number of customers participating in the bidding 
process, and is always willing to participate in dialogs, consistent 
with applicable law, to improve the efficiency of the process or 
find lower cost alternatives.
    Comment 3: The proposed rate will over-recover $53 million at 
the end of five years.
    Response 3: The proposed rate schedules are designed to recover 
all capitalized deficits within the five-year term of the schedules. 
If the estimates used in this rate study are achieved through 
operating results, there will be about $53 million available for 
repayment of the federal investment in fiscal year 2017. Under the 
Flood Control Act of 1944, rate schedules are to recover the 
amortization of capital investment over a reasonable period of 
years.
    Approval of the proposed rate schedules is requested for a 
period of five years. However, contract provisions allow rate 
schedules to be adjusted October 1 of any year. Should operating 
results exceed expectations and lead to accelerated recovery of 
costs, new rate schedules can be proposed before the term of these 
rate schedules expires.
    Comment 4: SEPA could defer any rate increase until the 
following fiscal year, beginning in 2014.
    Response 4: Two projects in the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina 
System are reaching their fiftieth year of operation in fiscal year 
2013. These are the Hartwell Project and the Walter F. George 
Project. The total investment due to be repaid in fiscal year 2013 
is almost $80 million. Deferring this rate adjustment could create 
unacceptably large capitalized deficits. Deferring this rate 
adjustment to a later date would lead to a much more dramatic rate 
adjustment at a later date.
    Comment 5: SEPA could institute a temporary or one-year rate 
increase to introduce a new repayment study next year that would 
have the effect of lowering the overall rate in coming years. This 
option allows SEPA to make the required repayments in 2013 with 
customers' understanding that it is a one-year increase and not a 
five-year commitment.
    Response 5: A one-year rate increase would require that 
Southeastern file another rate adjustment in fiscal year 2013. 
Although approval of the proposed rate schedules is sought for a 
five-year period, new rate schedules can be proposed while these 
rate schedules are in effect.
    Comment 6: [The Customers] understand that a significant 
contributor to the need for a rate increase is the American Recovery 
and Reinvestment Act stimulus funds spent by the Corps of Engineers 
over the last few years. It is [The Customers] understanding that a 
significant portion of these funds were expensed and not 
capitalized, leading to the department to recover the costs through 
rates immediately.
    Response 6: The Corps provides estimates of O&M expenses and 
capitalized items that Southeastern uses in every rate adjustment. 
In the rate adjustment for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System 
filed in 2010, the Corps included estimated costs that would be 
funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). At

[[Page 55819]]

the time, the Corps expected these costs to be capitalized. However, 
subsequent accounting decisions determined these costs should be 
appropriately expensed. Southeastern and the Customers have reviewed 
the accounting for these costs and have not discovered material 
errors. Southeastern will continue to work with the Corps and the 
Customers to ensure costs are appropriately charged to hydropower.
    Comment 7: The Customers ask SEPA to provide updates on rate 
levels and associated recovery starting in 2014 and subsequent years 
to assess whether the rate as designed collects revenues in excess 
of required payments.
    Response 7: The Flood Control Act of 1944 requires Southeastern 
to recover the cost of producing and transmitting energy, including 
the amortization of capital investment allocated to power over a 
reasonable period of years. If the estimates used in the rate study 
are higher than the actual costs incurred, the variance is applied 
to cost recovery. As such, Southeastern would meet its required 
payments early, but would not over-recover costs.
    Under DOE Order RA6120.2, Southeastern is required to update the 
repayment studies annually. The Customer may request these updates 
by contacting Virgil Hobbs, Assistant Administrator, Finance and 
Marketing, Southeastern Power Administration, Department of Energy, 
1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton, Georgia 30635-4578, (706) 213-3800. 
Southeastern will continue to work with the Customers to ensure 
appropriate cost recovery and reporting.
    Comment 8: Although it is possible revenues for 2012 may be 
lower than expected, there has been no discussion or evidence put 
forth that would support a decision by SEPA to raise rates above the 
levels published in the Federal Register notice. Indeed, with 
documentation that the rate could recover more than what is needed 
for the required payments in later years, the record for the 
proposed rate supports the proposed rate adjustment and nothing 
higher. If SEPA sought to deviate from the proposed rate as set 
forth in the Federal Register notice, the Customers would ask SEPA 
to re-open the public process and allow the Customers to submit 
comments accordingly. Failure to do so would deprive the hydropower 
customers the due process otherwise guaranteed in the revision of 
power rates.
    Response 8: SEPA has adopted the proposed rate schedules.
    Comment 9: The Customers would encourage SEPA representatives to 
further engage their counterparts at the Corps to follow through on 
the statutory obligation for setting rates and ensuring fairness in 
setting the rates. Small changes in the allocation of O&M expenses 
can provide substantial savings for the hydropower customers over an 
extended period if those expenses are properly classified.
    Response 9: SEPA will continue to work with the Customers and 
the Corps to ensure proper accounting of costs to hydropower.

DISCUSSION

System Repayment

    An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment 
study, prepared in July 2012, for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina 
System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs 
are paid within the term of these rate schedules. 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.

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
