[FR Doc. 2012–27709 Filed 11–9–12; 11:15 am] BILLING CODE 6717–01–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Southwestern Power Administration Sam Rayburn Dam Project Power Rate Southwestern Power Administration, DOE. ACTION: Notice of Rate Order Approving an Extension of Power Rate on an Interim Basis. AGENCY: The Deputy Secretary of Energy has approved and placed into effect on an interim basis Rate Order No. SWPA–65. DATES: The effective period for the rate schedule specified in Rate Order No. SWPA–65 is October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. James K. McDonald, Assistant Administrator, Southwestern Power Administration, Department of Energy, Williams Center Tower I, One West Third Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74103, (918) 595–6690, jim.mcdonald@swpa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Rate Order No. SWPA–65, which has been approved and placed into effect on an interim basis, extends the existing power rate for the Sam Rayburn Dam Project (Rayburn), Rate Schedule SRD– 08, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Power and Energy Sold to Sam Rayburn Dam Electric Cooperative, Inc., for a period of one year, through September 30, 2013. The existing rate schedule for the Sam Rayburn Dam Project was confirmed and approved on a final basis by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in the FERC Docket No. EF09– 4021–000 (126 FERC ¶ 62244), issued March 30, 2009, for the period January 1, 2009, through September 30, 2012. However, the current rate schedule will expire September 30, 2012. The Deputy Secretary of Energy is extending the project rate schedule through September 30, 2013. Following Department of Energy guidelines, Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern) prepared a 2012 Current Power Repayment Study using the existing Sam Rayburn Dam Project rate schedule emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:41 Nov 13, 2012 Jkt 229001 and a Revised Power Repayment Study which indicated the need for an increase in annual revenues of $193,896, or 4.9 percent, to meet repayment criteria. Southwestern’s Administrator deferred a rate increase because the Administrator deemed it was in the best interest of the Government to do so as a result of benefits obtained by such a deferral, including reduced federal rate case expense and rate stability. The Deputy Secretary has determined, pursuant to the authority of 10 CFR 903.22(h) and 903.23(a)(3), to adopt a one-year interim extension of the Sam Rayburn Project Power Rate. The extension is required because the current rate expires September 30, 2012. Southwestern will reevaluate the ability of the existing rate to provide sufficient revenues to satisfy costs projected in the FY 2013 Power Repayment Studies. Pursuant to the authority of Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 903), Sections 903.22(h) and 903.23(a)(3), the Deputy Secretary of Energy may extend a FERC-approved rate on an interim basis. The Administrator, Southwestern Power Administration, has followed Title 10, Part 903 Subpart A, of the Code of Federal Regulations, ‘‘Procedures for Public Participation in Power and Transmission Rate Adjustments and Extensions’’ in connection with the proposed rate extension. On August 21, 2012, Southwestern published notice in the Federal Register, (77 FR 50493), of the proposed rate extension for the Rayburn project. Southwestern provided a 30-day comment period as an opportunity for customers and other interested members of the public to review and comment on the proposed rate extension. Southwestern received one comment during the public comment period. The comment, on behalf of Sam Rayburn Dam Electric Cooperative, Inc., expressed no objection to the rate extension through September 30, 2013. Following review of Southwestern’s proposal within the Department of Energy and pursuant to authorities granted in Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 903), Sections 903.22(h) and 903.23(a)(3), Rate Order No. SWPA–65, which extends the existing Sam Rayburn Dam Project rate schedule for one year through September 30, 2013, is approved.

Deputy Secretary of Energy Rate Order No. SWPA–65 Order Confirming and Approving an Extension of Power Rate Schedule in Effect Pursuant to Sections 302(a) and 301(b) 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 Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern) 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 the Administrator of Southwestern the authority to develop power and transmission rates, delegated to the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Energy the authority to confirm, approve, and place in effect such rates on an interim basis and delegated to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) the authority to confirm and approve on a final basis or to disapprove rates developed by the Administrator under the delegation. This rate extension is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to the Delegation Order No. 00–037.00 and the authority to extend rates, previously confirmed and approved by FERC, on an interim basis, pursuant to Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 903), Sections 903.22(h) and 903.23(a)(3). Background The Sam Rayburn Dam (Rayburn) is located on the Angelina River in the State of Texas in the Neches River Basin. Since the beginning of its operation in 1965, it has been marketed as an isolated project, under contract with Sam Rayburn Dam Electric Cooperative, Inc. (SRDEC) (Contract No. DE–PM75–92SW00215). SRDEC is comprised of two separate entities, the Sam Rayburn G&T, and the Sam Rayburn Municipal Power Agency. In the FERC Docket No. EF09–4021– 000 (126 FERC ¶ 62244), issued March 30, 2009, for the period January 1, 2009, through September 30, 2012, the FERC confirmed and approved the current annual Rayburn rate of $3,949,872.
