ACTION: Notice of Rate Order. The U.S. Department of Energy Deputy Secretary has approved and placed into effect on an interim basis Rate Order No. SWPA–66, which increases the power rates for the Integrated System pursuant to the Integrated System Rate Schedules to supersede the existing rate schedules. DATES: The effective period for the rate schedules specified in Rate Order No. SWPA–66 is October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. James K. McDonald, Vice President for Corporate Operations/Chief Operating Office, 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–66, which has been approved and placed into effect on an interim basis, increases the power rates for the Integrated System pursuant to the following Integrated System Rate Schedules: Salmon Creek Hydroelectric Company, Salmon Creek Hydroelectric Company, LLC; Notice of Transfer of Exemption Rate Schedule P–13, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power; 1.

The rate schedules supersede the existing rate schedules shown below: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER Rate Schedule P–11, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power (superseded by P–13); Rate Schedule NFTS–11, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal Transmission/ Interconnection Facilities Service (superseded by NFTS–13); Rate Schedule EE–11, Wholesale Rate for Excess Energy (superseded by EE–13). Southwestern Power Administration’s (Southwestern) Administrator has determined based on the 2013 Integrated System Current Power Repayment Study, that existing rates will not satisfy cost recovery criteria specified in Department of Energy Order No. RA 6120.2 and Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944. The finalized 2013 Integrated System Power Repayment Studies (PRSs) indicate that an increase in annual revenue of $8,706,702, or 4.7 percent, beginning October 1, 2013, will satisfy cost recovery criteria for the Integrated System projects. The proposed Integrated System rate schedules would increase annual revenues from $184,059,100 to $192,765,802 to recover increased investments and replacements in the hydroelectric generating and transmission facilities and increased operations and maintenance costs for both Southwestern and the U.S. Army’s Corps of Engineers (Corps). Additionally, the PRS analyzes the Purchased Power Deferral Account which indicated a reduction was needed for the Purchased Power Adder which is used to recover average year purchased energy costs. This proposal also continues the Administrator’s Discretionary Purchased Power Adder Adjustment (Adjustment). This Adjustment allows the Administrator to adjust the Purchased Power Adder twice annually, limited to ±$0.0059 per kilowatthour per year as necessary, at his/her discretion, with notification to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, to regulate the account at a level that will recover purchased power costs. The Administrator 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 schedule. On July 1, 2013, Southwestern published notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 39280) of a 60day comment period, together with a planned combined Public Information VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 and Comment Forum, to provide an opportunity for customers and other interested members of the public to review and comment on the proposed rate increase for the Integrated System. The forum was not held because Southwestern did not receive any requests to hold such a forum. Written comments were accepted through August 30, 2013. No comments were received. Information regarding this rate proposal, including studies and other supporting material, is available for public review and comment in the offices of Southwestern Power Administration, Williams Center Tower I, One West Third Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74103. Following review of Southwestern’s proposal within the Department of Energy, I hereby approve Rate Order No. SWPA–66, which increases the existing Integrated System annual revenue requirement to $192,765,802 per year for the period October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2017. Rate Order No. SWPA–66 will be submitted to FERC for confirmation and approval on a final basis. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that publication of a substantive rule be made not less than 30 days before its effective date, except, in relevant part, if the agency has good cause to waive the delay requirement (5 U.S.C. 553(d)). Southwestern finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effective date, placing the rates in effect on an interim basis starting October 1, 2013, because the current rate is insufficient to recover costs as required by statute; no change to the standard October 1 date of implementation is being made; and no comments were received and no revisions were made to the proposed rates. Dated: September 30, 2013. Daniel Poneman, Deputy Secretary. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY DEPUTY SECRETARY OF ENERGY In the matter of: Southwestern Power Administration Integrated System Rates Rate Order No. SWPA–66 Order Confirming, Approving and Placing Increased Power Rate Schedules in Effect on an Interim Basis ( ) 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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62617 Energy. By Delegation Order Nos. 00–037.00 and 00–001.00E, 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. Pursuant to delegated authority, the Deputy Secretary issued this interim rate order. BACKGROUND FERC confirmation and approval of the following Integrated System (System) rate schedules was provided in FERC Docket No. EF12–1–000 issued on March 5, 2012, (138 FERC ¶ 62,199) effective for the period from January 1, 2012, through September 30, 2015: Rate Schedule P–11, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power; Rate Schedule NFTS–11, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal Transmission/ Interconnection Facilities Service; Rate Schedule EE–11, Wholesale Rate for Excess Energy. Southwestern prepared a 2013 Current Power Repayment Study (PRS) which indicated that the existing rates would not satisfy present financial criteria regarding repayment of investment within a 50-year period due to increased investments, replacements, and operations and maintenance expenses in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) hydroelectric generating facilities and Southwestern’s transmission facilities. The Revised PRS indicated the need for a 4.7 percent revenue increase. These preliminary results, which presented the basis for the proposed revenue increase, were provided to the customers for their review prior to the formal process. The final 2013 Revised PRS indicates that an increase in annual revenues of $8,706,702 (a 4.7 percent increase) is necessary beginning October 1, 2013, to accomplish repayment in the required number of years. Accordingly, Southwestern has prepared proposed rate schedules based on the additional revenue requirement and the 2013 Rate Design Study which allocates the revenue requirement to the various System rate schedules to ensure repayment. Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations, ‘‘Procedures for Public Participation in Power and Transmission Rate Adjustments and Extensions,’’ has been followed in connection with the proposed rate adjustments. Specifically, opportunities for public review and comment on proposed System power rates during a 60-day period were announced by notice published in the Federal Register, July 1, 2013, (78 FR 39280). The consultation and comment period was shortened from the 90 days provided for in the regulations by the Administrator, in accordance with Sec. 903.14 of 10 CFR part 903, because Southwestern held a preissuance consultation with customers. A Public Information and Comment Forum was proposed to be held on July 11, 2013, in E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 62618 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 22, 2013 / Notices Tulsa, Oklahoma. Such forum was not held since no one requested that the forum be held. No request for information or copies of the proposed Power Repayment and Rate Design Studies were received from any customers or interested parties during the formal period of public participation. Written comments were due by August 30, 2013. No comments were received during the public participation process on Southwestern’s preliminary results. Following the conclusion of the comment period on August 30, 2013, the 2013 Power Repayment and Rate Design Studies were finalized. The Administrator made the decision to submit the rate proposal for interim approval and implementation. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER DISCUSSION General The existing rate schedules as developed in the 2011 Integrated System PRS were the basis for the revenue determination in the System Current PRS. The Current PRS indicates that existing rates are insufficient to produce the annual revenues necessary to accomplish repayment of the capital investment as required by Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944 and Department of Energy (DOE) Order No. RA 6120.2. The Revised PRS indicates it is necessary to increase annual revenues by $8,706,702 or 4.7 percent, which satisfies the cost recovery criteria outlined in DOE Order No. RA 6120.2 and Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944. In Southwestern’s 2013 Rate Design proposal, rates were designed to recover the additional revenue requirements. The monthly demand charge for the sale of Federal hydroelectric power has increased. The base energy and supplemental energy charges also reflect an increase over the current rate. In addition, transmission charges for non-Federal, firm service have increased. Those customers taking transformation service will also see an increase in that rate component. The increases to the transmission charges are due to including projected additions and replacements to Southwestern’s aging transmission facilities since the last rate change and a transmission-specific cost related to participation in the Southwest Power Pool Regional Transmission Organization. Consistent with FERC’s Order No. 888, Southwestern will continue charging for the six ancillary services under Rate Schedule P– 13 and Rate Schedule NFTS–13, and offering non-Federal transmission service under Rate Schedule NFTS–13. Southwestern’s rate design has separated the ancillary services for all transmission service. Two ancillary services, Scheduling, System Control and Dispatch Service together with Reactive and Voltage Support Service, are required for every transmission transaction. These charges are also a part of the capacity rate for Federal power. This is consistent with Southwestern’s long-standing practice of charging for the sale and delivery of Federal power in its Federal demand charge. The remaining ancillary services will be made available to any transmission user within Southwestern’s balancing area, including VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 Federal power customers. The rate schedules for Peaking Power and Non-Federal Transmission Service reflect these charges. Network transmission service is provided to those who have contracted for the service, but only for non-Federal deliveries. The rate for and application of this service are identified in the Non-Federal Transmission/ Interconnection Facilities Service Rate Schedule, NFTS–13. With respect to the Purchased Power Adder (PPA), Southwestern proposed, as in all previous proposals beginning with the 1983 implementation of the purchased power rate component, that the Adder is set equal to the current average long-term purchased power revenue requirement. As shown in the Rate Design Study, the amount is determined by dividing the estimated total average direct purchased power costs by Southwestern’s total annual contractual 1200-hour peaking energy commitments to the customers (exclusive of contract support arrangements). In Southwestern’s rate proposal, the resulting Adder decreases from the current $0.0062 per kWh of peaking energy to $0.0059 per kWh of peaking energy. The total revenue created through application of this Adder should enable Southwestern to cover its average annual purchased power costs. COMMENTS AND RESPONSES Southwestern received no comments or questions during the public participation period. AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION Information regarding this rate proposal, including studies, comments and other supporting material, is available for public review and comment in the offices of Southwestern Power Administration, One West Third Street, Tulsa, OK 74103. ADMINISTRATION’S CERTIFICATION The July 2013 Revised PRS indicates that the increased power rates will repay all costs of the Integrated System including amortization of the power investment consistent with the provisions of Department of Energy Order No. RA 6120.2. In accordance with Delegation Order No. 00– 037.00 (December 6, 2001) and Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, the Administrator has determined that the proposed System rates are consistent with applicable law and the lowest possible rates consistent with sound business principles. ENVIRONMENT The environmental impact of the proposed System rates was evaluated in consideration of DOE’s guidelines for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act and was determined to fall within the class of actions that are categorically excluded (10 CFR 1021) from the requirements of preparing either an Environmental Impact Statement or an Environmental Assessment. ORDER In view of the foregoing and pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Secretary of Energy, I hereby confirm, approve and place in effect on an interim basis, effective October 1, 2013, the following PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Southwestern Integrated System Rate Schedules which shall remain in effect on an interim basis through September 30, 2017, or until the FERC confirms and approves the rates on a final basis.

Until such time as that meter reconfiguration is accomplished, the Customer will be charged for the Regulation and Frequency Response Service and applicable Adder then in effect. The Customer must notify Southwestern by July 1 of this choice, to be effective the subsequent calendar year. 2.4.5. Regulation Purchased Adder Southwestern has determined the amount of energy used from storage to provide Regulation and Frequency Response Service in order to meet Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area requirements. The replacement value of such energy used shall be recovered through the Regulation Purchased Adder. The Regulation Purchased Adder during the time period of January 1 through December 31 of the current calendar year is based on the average annual use of energy from storage 1 for Regulation and Frequency Response Service and Southwestern’s estimated purchased power price for the corresponding year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies. The Regulation Purchased Adder will be phased in over a period of four (4) years as follows: Regulation purchased adder for the incremental replacement value of energy used from storage Year 2014 ⁄ of the average annual use of energy from storage × 2014 Purchased Power price. 1⁄2 of the average annual use of energy from storage × 2015 Purchased Power price. 3⁄4 of the average annual use of energy from storage × 2016 Purchased Power price. The total average annual use of energy from storage × the applicable Purchased Power price. 14 2015 2016 2017 and thereafter 2.4.5.1. Applicability of Regulation Purchased Adder The replacement value of the estimated annual use of energy from storage for Regulation and Frequency Response Service shall be recovered by Customers located within Southwestern’s Balancing Authority 1 The average annual use of energy from storage for Regulation and Frequency Response Service is based on Southwestern studies. E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 Area on a non-coincident peak ratio share basis, divided into twelve equal monthly payments, in accordance with the formula in Section 2.4.5.2. If the Regulation Purchased Adder is determined and applied under Southwestern’s Rate Schedule NFTS–11, then it shall not be applied here. 2.4.5.2. Procedure for Determining Regulation Purchased Adder Unless otherwise specified by contract, the Regulation Purchased Adder for an individual Customer shall be based on the following formula rate, calculated to include the replacement value of the estimated annual use of energy from storage by Southwestern for Regulation and Frequency Response Service. RPA = The Regulation Purchased Adder for an individual Customer per month, which is as follows: [(L Customer ÷ L Total) × RP Total ] ÷ 12 with the factors defined as follows: L Customer = The sum in MW of the following three factors: (1) The Customer’s highest metered load plus generation used to serve the Customer’s load that is accounted for through a reduction in the Customer’s metered load (referred to as ‘generation behind the meter’) during the previous calendar year, and (2) The Customer’s highest rate of Scheduled Exports 2 during the previous calendar year, and (3) The Customer’s highest rate of Scheduled Imports 2 during the previous calendar year. L Total = The sum of all L Customer factors for all Customers that were inside Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area at the beginning of the previous calendar year in MW. RP Total = The ‘‘net’’ cost in dollars and cents based on Southwestern’s estimated purchased power price for the corresponding year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies multiplied by the average annual use of energy from storage, as provided for in the table in Section 2.4.5, to support Southwestern’s ability to regulate within its Balancing Authority Area. The ‘‘net’’ cost in dollars and cents shall be adjusted by subtracting the product of the quantity of such average annual use of energy from storage in MWh and Southwestern’s highest rate in dollars per MWh for Supplemental Peaking Energy during the previous calendar year. For Customers that have aggregated their load, resources, and scheduling into a single node by contract within Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area, the individual Customer’s respective Regulation Purchased Adder shall be that Customer’s ratio share of the Regulation Purchased Adder established for the node. Such ratio share shall be 2 Scheduled Exports and Scheduled Imports are transactions, such as sales and purchases respectively, which are in addition to a Customer’s metered load that contribute to Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area need for regulation. VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 determined for the Customer on a noncoincident basis and shall be calculated for the Customer from their highest metered load plus generation behind the meter. 2.4.6. Energy Imbalance Service Limitations Energy Imbalance Service primarily applies to deliveries of power and energy which are required to satisfy a Customer’s load. As Hydro Peaking Power and associated energy are limited by contract, the Energy Imbalance Service bandwidth specified for Non-Federal Transmission Service does not apply to deliveries of Hydro Peaking Power, and therefore Energy Imbalance Service is not charged on such deliveries. Customers who consume a capacity of Hydro Peaking Power greater than their Peaking Contract Demand may be subject to a Capacity Overrun Penalty. 3. Hydro Peaking Power Penalties, Terms, and Conditions 3.1. Capacity Overrun Penalty 3.1.1. Penalty Charge for Capacity Overrun For each hour during which Hydro Peaking Power was provided at a rate greater than that to which the Customer is entitled, the Customer will be charged a Capacity Overrun Penalty at the following rates: Months associated with charge Rate per kilowatt March, April, May, October, November, December ................. January, February, June, July, August, September ................. $0.15 0.30 3.1.2. Applicability of Capacity Overrun Penalty Customers which have loads within Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area are obligated by contract to provide resources, over and above the Hydro Peaking Power and associated energy purchased from Southwestern, sufficient to meet their loads. A Capacity Overrun Penalty shall be applied only when the formulas provided in Customers’ respective Power Sales Contracts indicate an overrun on Hydro Peaking Power, and investigation determines that all resources, both firm and non-firm, which were available at the time of the apparent overrun were insufficient to meet the Customer’s load. 3.2. Energy Overrun Penalty 3.2.1. Penalty Charge for Energy Overrun $0.1034 per kilowatthour for each kilowatthour of overrun. 3.2.2. Applicability of Energy Overrun Penalty By contract, the Customer is subject to limitations on the maximum amounts of Peaking Energy which may be scheduled under the Customer’s Power Sales Contract. When the Customer schedules an amount in excess of such maximum amounts, such Customer is subject to the Energy Overrun Penalty. PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62621 3.3. Power Factor Penalty 3.3.1. Requirements Related to Power Factor Any Customer served from facilities owned by or available by contract to Southwestern will be required to maintain a power factor of not less than 95 percent and will be subject to the following provisions. 3.3.2. Determination of Power Factor The power factor will be determined for all Demand Periods and shall be calculated under the formula: with the factors defined as follows: PF = The power factor for any Demand Period of the month. kWh = The total quantity of energy which is delivered during such Demand Period to the point of delivery or interconnection in accordance with Section 3.3.4. rkVAh = The total quantity of reactive kilovolt-ampere-hours (kVARs) delivered during such Demand Period to the point of delivery or interconnection in accordance with Section 3.3.4. 3.3.3. Penalty Charge for Power Factor The Customer shall be assessed a penalty for all Demand Periods of a month where the power factor is less than 95 percent lagging. For any Demand Period during a particular month such penalty shall be in accordance with the following formula: C = D × (0.95 ¥ LPF) × $0.10 with the factors defined as follows: C = The charge in dollars to be assessed for any particular Demand Period of such month that the determination of power factor ‘‘PF’’ is calculated to be less than 95 percent lagging. D = The Customer’s demand in kilowatts at the point of delivery for such Demand Period in which a low power factor was calculated. LPF = The lagging power factor, if any, determined by the formula ‘‘PF’’ for such Demand Period. If C is negative, then C = zero (0). 3.3.4. Applicability of Power Factor Penalty The Power Factor Penalty is applicable to radial interconnections with the System of Southwestern. The total Power Factor Penalty for any month shall be the sum of all charges ‘‘C’’ for all Demand Periods of such month. No penalty is assessed for leading power factor. Southwestern, in its sole judgment and at its sole option, may determine whether power factor calculations should be applied to (i) a single physical point of delivery, (ii) a combination of physical points of delivery where a Customer has a single, electrically integrated load, (iii) or interconnections. The general criteria for such decision shall be that, given the configuration of the Customer’s and Southwestern’s systems, Southwestern will determine, in its sole judgment and at its sole option, whether the power factor calculation more accurately assesses the detrimental impact on Southwestern’s system when the above formula is calculated for a single physical point of delivery, a combination of physical points of delivery, or for an E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 EN22OC13.012</GPH> sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 22, 2013 / Notices 62622 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 22, 2013 / Notices interconnection as specified by an Interconnection Agreement. Southwestern, at its sole option, may reduce or waive Power Factor Penalties when, in Southwestern’s sole judgment, low power factor conditions were not detrimental to the System of Southwestern due to particular loading and voltage conditions at the time the power factor dropped below 95 percent lagging. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER 4.

Provision of Ancillary Services by Others Customers for which Ancillary Services identified in Sections 2.6.1.3 through 2.6.1.6 of this Rate Schedule are made available as specified above must inform Southwestern by written notice of the Ancillary Services which they do not intend to take and purchase from Southwestern, and of their election to provide all or part of such Ancillary Services from their own resources or from a third party. Such notice requirements also apply to requests for Southwestern to provide Ancillary Services when such services are available as specified above. Subject to Southwestern’s approval of the ability of such resources or third parties to meet Southwestern’s technical and operational requirements for provision of such Ancillary Services, the Customer may change the Ancillary Services which it takes Year 2014 2015 2016 2017 2.6.5. Regulation Purchased Adder Southwestern has determined the amount of energy used from storage to provide Regulation and Frequency Response Service in order to meet Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area requirements. The replacement value of such energy used shall be recovered through the Regulation Purchased Adder. The Regulation Purchased Adder during the time period of January 1 through December 31 of the current calendar year is based on the average annual use of energy from storage 1 for Regulation and Frequency Response Service and Southwestern’s estimated purchased power price for the corresponding year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies. The Regulation Purchased Adder will be phased in over a period of four (4) years as follows: Regulation purchased adder for the incremental replacement value of energy used from storage ............................................. ............................................. ............................................. and thereafter ..................... ⁄ of the ⁄ of the 3⁄4 of the The total 14 12 average average average average annual annual annual annual use use use use of of of of energy energy energy energy from from from from storage storage storage storage × 2014 Purchased Power price. × 2015 Purchased Power price. × 2016 Purchased Power price. × the applicable Purchased Power price. Unless otherwise specified by contract, the Regulation Purchased Adder for an individual Customer shall be based on the following formula rate, calculated to include the replacement value of the estimated annual use of energy from storage by Southwestern for Regulation and Frequency Response Service. RPA = The Regulation Purchased Adder for an individual Customer per month, which is as follows: [(LCustomer ÷ LTotal) × RPTotal] ÷ 12 with the factors defined as follows: LCustomer = The sum in MW of the following three factors: (1) The Customer’s highest metered load plus generation used to serve the Customer’s load that is accounted for through a reduction in the Customer’s metered load (referred to as ‘generation behind the meter’) during the previous calendar year, and (2) The Customer’s highest rate of Scheduled Exports2 during the previous calendar year, and (3) The Customer’s highest rate of Scheduled Imports2 during the previous calendar year. LTotal = The sum of all LCustomer factors for all Customers that were inside Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area at the beginning of the previous calendar year in MW. RPTotal = The ‘‘net’’ cost in dollars and cents based on Southwestern’s estimated purchased power price for the corresponding year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies multiplied by the average annual use of energy from storage, as provided for in the table in Section 2.4.5, to support Southwestern’s ability to regulate within its Balancing Authority Area. The ‘‘net’’ cost in dollars and cents shall be adjusted by subtracting the product of the quantity of such average annual use of energy from storage in MWh and Southwestern’s highest rate in dollars per MWh for Supplemental Peaking Energy during the previous calendar year. For Customers that have aggregated their load, resources, and scheduling into a single node by contract within Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area, the individual Customer’s respective Regulation Purchased Adder shall be that Customer’s ratio share of the Regulation Purchased Adder established for the node. Such ratio share shall be determined for the Customer on a non- coincident basis and shall be calculated for the Customer from their highest metered load plus generation behind the meter. 2.6.6. Energy Imbalance Service Limitations Energy Imbalance Service primarily applies to deliveries of power and energy which are required to satisfy a Customer’s load. As Hydro Peaking Power and associated energy are limited by contract, the Energy Imbalance Service bandwidth specified for Non-Federal Transmission Service does not apply to deliveries of Hydro Peaking Power, and therefore Energy Imbalance Service is not charged on such deliveries. Customers who consume a capacity of Hydro Peaking Power greater than their Peaking Contract Demand may be subject to a Capacity Overrun Penalty. Energy delivered or received within the authorized bandwidth for this service is accounted for as an inadvertent flow and will be netted against flows in the future. The inadvertent flow in any given hour will only be offset with the flows in the corresponding hour of a day in the same category. Unless otherwise specified by contract, the two categories of days are weekdays and weekend days/North American Electric Reliability Corporation holidays, and this process will result in a separate inadvertent accumulation for each hour of the two categories of days. The hourly accumulations in the current month will be added to the hourly inadvertent balances from the previous month, resulting in a month-end balance for each hour. The Customer is required to adjust the scheduling of resources in such a way as to reduce the accumulation towards zero. It is recognized that the inadvertent hourly flows 1 The average annual use of energy from storage for Regulation and Frequency Response Service is based on Southwestern studies. 2 Scheduled Exports and Scheduled Imports are transactions, such as sales and purchases respectively, which are in addition to a Customer’s metered load that contribute to Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area need for regulation. 2.6.5.1. Applicability of Regulation Purchased Adder The replacement value of the estimated annual use of energy from storage for Regulation and Frequency Response Service shall be recovered by Customers located within Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area on a non-coincident peak ratio share basis, divided into twelve equal monthly payments, in accordance with the formula in Section 2.4.5.2. If the Regulation Purchased Adder is determined and applied under Southwestern’s Rate Schedule NFTS–11, then it shall not be applied here. 2.6.5.2. Procedure for Determining Regulation Purchased Adder sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER from Southwestern and/or from other sources at the beginning of any month upon the greater of 60 days written notice or upon the completion of any necessary equipment modifications necessary to accommodate such change; Provided, That, if the Customer chooses not to take Regulation and Frequency Response Service, which includes the associated Regulation Purchased Adder, the Customer must pursue these services from a different host Balancing Authority; thereby moving all metered loads and resources from Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area to the Balancing Authority Area of the new host Balancing Authority. Until such time as that meter reconfiguration is accomplished, the Customer will be charged for the Regulation and Frequency Response Service and applicable Adder then in effect. The Customer must notify Southwestern by July 1 of this choice, to be effective the subsequent calendar. 62625 VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 22, 2013 / Notices can be both negative and positive, and that offsetting flows should deter a significant accumulation of inadvertent. Unless otherwise specified by contract, in the event any hourly month-end balance exceeds 12 MWhs, the excess will be subject to Section 3.1 or Section 3.2 of this Rate Schedule, depending on the direction of the accumulation. 3. Non-Federal Transmission/ Interconnection Facilities Service Penalties, Terms, and Conditions 3.1. Capacity Overrun Penalty 3.1.1. Penalty Charge for Capacity Overrun For each hour during which energy flows outside the authorized bandwidth, the Customer will be obliged to purchase such energy at the following rates: Rate per kilowatt Months associated with charge March, April, May, October, November, December ................. January, February, June, July, August, September ................. $0.15 0.30 3.1.2. Applicability of Capacity Overrun Penalty Customers who receive deliveries within Southwestern’s Balancing Authority Area are obligated to provide resources sufficient to meet their loads. Such obligation is not related to the amount of transmission capacity that such Customers may-have reserved for transmission service to a particular load. In the event that a Customer underschedules its resources to serve its load, resulting in a difference between resources and actual metered load (adjusted for transformer losses as applicable) outside the authorized bandwidth for Energy Imbalance Service for any hour, then such Customer is subject to the Capacity Overrun Penalty. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER 3.2. Unauthorized Use of Energy Imbalance Service by Overscheduling of Resources In the event that a Customer schedules greater resources than are needed to serve its load, such that energy flows at rates beyond the authorized bandwidth for the use of Energy Imbalance Service, Southwestern retains such energy at no cost to Southwestern and with no obligation to return such energy. 3.3. Power Factor Penalty 3.3.1. Requirements Related to Power Factor Any Customer served from facilities owned by or available by contract to Southwestern will be required to maintain a power factor of not less than 95 percent and will be subject to the following provisions. 3.3.2. Determination of Power Factor The power factor will be determined for all Demand Periods and shall be calculated under the formula: with the factors defined as follows: PF = The power factor for any Demand Period of the month. VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 kWh = The total quantity of energy which is delivered during such Demand Period to the point of delivery or interconnection in accordance with Section 3.3.4. rkVAh = The total quantity of reactive kilovolt-ampere-hours (kVARs) delivered during such Demand Period to the point of delivery or interconnection in accordance with Section 3.3.4. 3.3.3. Penalty Charge for Power Factor The Customer shall be assessed a penalty for all Demand Periods of a month where the power factor is less than 95 percent lagging. For any Demand Period during a particular month such penalty shall be in accordance with the following formula: C = D × (0.95 ¥ LPF) × $0.10 with the factors defined as follows: C = The charge in dollars to be assessed for any particular Demand Period of such month that the determination of power factor ‘‘PF’’ is calculated to be less than 95 percent lagging. D = The Customer’s demand in kilowatts at the point of delivery for such Demand Period in which a low power factor was calculated. LPF = The lagging power factor, if any, determined by the formula ‘‘PF’’ for such Demand Period. If C is negative, then C = zero (0). 3.3.4. Applicability of Power Factor Penalty The Power Factor Penalty is applicable to radial interconnections with the System of Southwestern. The total Power Factor Penalty for any month shall be the sum of all charges ‘‘C’’ for all Demand Periods of such month. No penalty is assessed for leading power factor. Southwestern, in its sole judgment and at its sole option, may determine whether power factor calculations should be applied to (i) a single physical point of delivery, (ii) a combination of physical points of delivery where a Customer has a single, electrically integrated load, (iii) or interconnections. The general criteria for such decision shall be that, given the configuration of the Customer’s and Southwestern’s systems, Southwestern will determine, in its sole judgment and at its sole option, whether the power factor calculation more accurately assesses the detrimental impact on Southwestern’s system when the above formula is calculated for a single physical point of delivery, a combination of physical points of delivery, or for an interconnection as specified by an Interconnection Agreement. Southwestern, at its sole option, may reduce or waive Power Factor Penalties when, in Southwestern’s sole judgment, low power factor conditions were not detrimental to the System of Southwestern due to particular loading and voltage conditions at the time the power factor dropped below 95 percent lagging. 4. Non-Federal Transmission/ Interconnection Facilities Service Miscellaneous Rates, Terms, and Conditions 4.1. Real Power Losses Customers are required to self-provide all Real Power Losses for non-Federal energy transmitted by Southwestern on behalf of PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 such Customers under the provisions detailed below. Real Power Losses are computed as four (4) percent of the total amount of non-Federal energy transmitted by Southwestern. The Customer’s monthly Real Power Losses are computed each month on a megawatthour basis as follows: ML = 0.04 × NFE with the factors defined as follows: ML = The total monthly loss energy, rounded to the nearest megawatthour, to be scheduled by a Customer for receipt by Southwestern for Real Power Losses associated with non-Federal energy transmitted on behalf of such Customer; and NFE = The amount of non-Federal energy that was transmitted by Southwestern on behalf of a Customer during a particular month. The Customer must schedule or cause to be scheduled to Southwestern, Real Power Losses for which it is responsible subject to the following conditions: 4.1.1. The Customer shall schedule and deliver Real Power Losses back to Southwestern during the second month after they were incurred by Southwestern in the transmission of the Customer’s non-Federal power and energy over the System of Southwestern unless such Customer has accounted for Real Power Losses as part of a metering arrangement with Southwestern. 4.1.2. On or before the twentieth day of each month, Southwestern shall determine the amount of non-Federal loss energy it provided on behalf of the Customer during the previous month and provide a written schedule to the Customer setting forth hourby-hour the quantities of non-Federal energy to be delivered to Southwestern as losses during the next month. 4.1.3. Real Power Losses not delivered to Southwestern by the Customer, according to the schedule provided, during the month in which such losses are due shall be billed by Southwestern to the Customer to adjust the end-of-month loss energy balance to zero (0) megawatthours and the Customer shall be obliged to purchase such energy at the following rates: Months associated with charge Rate per kilowatthour March, April, May, October, November, December ................ January, February, June, July, August, September ................ $0.15 0.30 4.1.4. Real Power Losses delivered to Southwestern by the Customer in excess of the losses due during the month shall be purchased by Southwestern from the Customer at a rate per megawatthour equal to Southwestern’s rate per megawatthour for Supplemental Peaking Energy, as set forth in Southwestern’s then-effective Rate Schedule for Hydro Peaking Power to adjust such hourly end-of-month loss energy balance to zero (0) megawatthours.

The finalized 2013 Rayburn Revised Power Repayment Studies (PRSs) indicate that an increase in annual revenue of $280,248, or 7.1 percent, beginning October 1, 2013, will satisfy cost recovery criteria for the Rayburn project. The proposed Rayburn rate schedule would increase annual revenues from $3,949,872 to $4,230,120, to recover increased U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (Corps) investments and replacements in the hydroelectric generating facility and increased operations and maintenance costs. The Administrator 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 schedule. On August 6, 2013, Southwestern published notice in the Federal Register, (78 FR 47695), of the proposed rate increase 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 increase.

Rate Order No. SWPA–67 will be submitted to FERC for confirmation and approval on a final basis. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that publication of a substantive rule be made not less than 30 days before its effective date, except, in relevant part, if the agency has good cause to waive the delay requirement (5 U.S.C. 553(d)). Southwestern finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effective date, placing the rates in effect on an interim basis starting October 1, 2013, because the current rate is insufficient to recover costs as required by statute; no change to the standard October 1 date of implementation is being made; and no comments were received and no revisions were made to the proposed rates.

Integrated System Power Rates

AGENCY: Southwestern Power Administration, DOE.

ACTION: Notice of Rate Order.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Energy Deputy Secretary has approved 
and placed into effect on an interim basis Rate Order No. SWPA-66, 
which increases the power rates for the Integrated System pursuant to 
the Integrated System Rate Schedules to supersede the existing rate 
schedules.

DATES: The effective period for the rate schedules specified in Rate 
Order No. SWPA-66 is October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. James K. McDonald, Vice President 
for Corporate Operations/Chief Operating Office, 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-66, which has been 
approved and placed into effect on an interim basis, increases the 
power rates for the Integrated System pursuant to the following 
Integrated System Rate Schedules:

    Rate Schedule P-13, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power;

[[Page 62617]]

    Rate Schedule NFTS-13, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal 
Transmission/Interconnection Facilities Service;
    Rate Schedule EE-13, Wholesale Rate for Excess Energy.

    The rate schedules supersede the existing rate schedules shown 
below:

    Rate Schedule P-11, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power 
(superseded by P-13);
    Rate Schedule NFTS-11, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal 
Transmission/Interconnection Facilities Service (superseded by NFTS-
13);
    Rate Schedule EE-11, Wholesale Rate for Excess Energy 
(superseded by EE-13).

    Southwestern Power Administration's (Southwestern) Administrator 
has determined based on the 2013 Integrated System Current Power 
Repayment Study, that existing rates will not satisfy cost recovery 
criteria specified in Department of Energy Order No. RA 6120.2 and 
Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944. The finalized 2013 
Integrated System Power Repayment Studies (PRSs) indicate that an 
increase in annual revenue of $8,706,702, or 4.7 percent, beginning 
October 1, 2013, will satisfy cost recovery criteria for the Integrated 
System projects. The proposed Integrated System rate schedules would 
increase annual revenues from $184,059,100 to $192,765,802 to recover 
increased investments and replacements in the hydroelectric generating 
and transmission facilities and increased operations and maintenance 
costs for both Southwestern and the U.S. Army's Corps of Engineers 
(Corps). Additionally, the PRS analyzes the Purchased Power Deferral 
Account which indicated a reduction was needed for the Purchased Power 
Adder which is used to recover average year purchased energy costs. 
This proposal also continues the Administrator's Discretionary 
Purchased Power Adder Adjustment (Adjustment). This Adjustment allows 
the Administrator to adjust the Purchased Power Adder twice annually, 
limited to $0.0059 per kilowatthour per year as necessary, 
at his/her discretion, with notification to the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, to regulate the account at a level that will 
recover purchased power costs.
    The Administrator 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 schedule. On July 1, 2013, Southwestern 
published notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 39280) of a 60-day 
comment period, together with a planned combined Public Information and 
Comment Forum, to provide an opportunity for customers and other 
interested members of the public to review and comment on the proposed 
rate increase for the Integrated System. The forum was not held because 
Southwestern did not receive any requests to hold such a forum. Written 
comments were accepted through August 30, 2013. No comments were 
received.
    Information regarding this rate proposal, including studies and 
other supporting material, is available for public review and comment 
in the offices of Southwestern Power Administration, Williams Center 
Tower I, One West Third Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74103. Following review 
of Southwestern's proposal within the Department of Energy, I hereby 
approve Rate Order No. SWPA-66, which increases the existing Integrated 
System annual revenue requirement to $192,765,802 per year for the 
period October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2017. Rate Order No. SWPA-
66 will be submitted to FERC for confirmation and approval on a final 
basis.
    The Administrative Procedure Act requires that publication of a 
substantive rule be made not less than 30 days before its effective 
date, except, in relevant part, if the agency has good cause to waive 
the delay requirement (5 U.S.C. 553(d)). Southwestern finds good cause 
to waive the 30-day delay in effective date, placing the rates in 
effect on an interim basis starting October 1, 2013, because the 
current rate is insufficient to recover costs as required by statute; 
no change to the standard October 1 date of implementation is being 
made; and no comments were received and no revisions were made to the 
proposed rates.

In the matter of: Southwestern Power Administration Integrated System 
Rates

Rate Order No. SWPA-66

Order Confirming, Approving and Placing Increased Power Rate Schedules 
in Effect on an Interim Basis ( )

    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 Nos. 00-037.00 and 00-001.00E, 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. Pursuant 
to delegated authority, the Deputy Secretary issued this interim 
rate order.

BACKGROUND

    FERC confirmation and approval of the following Integrated 
System (System) rate schedules was provided in FERC Docket No. EF12-
1-000 issued on March 5, 2012, (138 FERC ] 62,199) effective for the 
period from January 1, 2012, through September 30, 2015:

    Rate Schedule P-11, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power;
    Rate Schedule NFTS-11, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal 
Transmission/Interconnection Facilities Service;
    Rate Schedule EE-11, Wholesale Rate for Excess Energy.

    Southwestern prepared a 2013 Current Power Repayment Study (PRS) 
which indicated that the existing rates would not satisfy present 
financial criteria regarding repayment of investment within a 50-
year period due to increased investments, replacements, and 
operations and maintenance expenses in the U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers (Corps) hydroelectric generating facilities and 
Southwestern's transmission facilities. The Revised PRS indicated 
the need for a 4.7 percent revenue increase. These preliminary 
results, which presented the basis for the proposed revenue 
increase, were provided to the customers for their review prior to 
the formal process.
    The final 2013 Revised PRS indicates that an increase in annual 
revenues of $8,706,702 (a 4.7 percent increase) is necessary 
beginning October 1, 2013, to accomplish repayment in the required 
number of years. Accordingly, Southwestern has prepared proposed 
rate schedules based on the additional revenue requirement and the 
2013 Rate Design Study which allocates the revenue requirement to 
the various System rate schedules to ensure repayment.
    Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal 
Regulations, ``Procedures for Public Participation in Power and 
Transmission Rate Adjustments and Extensions,'' has been followed in 
connection with the proposed rate adjustments. Specifically, 
opportunities for public review and comment on proposed System power 
rates during a 60-day period were announced by notice published in 
the Federal Register, July 1, 2013, (78 FR 39280). The consultation 
and comment period was shortened from the 90 days provided for in 
the regulations by the Administrator, in accordance with Sec. 903.14 
of 10 CFR part 903, because Southwestern held a pre-issuance 
consultation with customers. A Public Information and Comment Forum 
was proposed to be held on July 11, 2013, in

[[Page 62618]]

Tulsa, Oklahoma. Such forum was not held since no one requested that 
the forum be held. No request for information or copies of the 
proposed Power Repayment and Rate Design Studies were received from 
any customers or interested parties during the formal period of 
public participation. Written comments were due by August 30, 2013.
    No comments were received during the public participation 
process on Southwestern's preliminary results. Following the 
conclusion of the comment period on August 30, 2013, the 2013 Power 
Repayment and Rate Design Studies were finalized. The Administrator 
made the decision to submit the rate proposal for interim approval 
and implementation.

DISCUSSION

General

    The existing rate schedules as developed in the 2011 Integrated 
System PRS were the basis for the revenue determination in the 
System Current PRS. The Current PRS indicates that existing rates 
are insufficient to produce the annual revenues necessary to 
accomplish repayment of the capital investment as required by 
Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944 and Department of Energy 
(DOE) Order No. RA 6120.2.
    The Revised PRS indicates it is necessary to increase annual 
revenues by $8,706,702 or 4.7 percent, which satisfies the cost 
recovery criteria outlined in DOE Order No. RA 6120.2 and Section 5 
of the Flood Control Act of 1944.
    In Southwestern's 2013 Rate Design proposal, rates were designed 
to recover the additional revenue requirements. The monthly demand 
charge for the sale of Federal hydroelectric power has increased. 
The base energy and supplemental energy charges also reflect an 
increase over the current rate. In addition, transmission charges 
for non-Federal, firm service have increased. Those customers taking 
transformation service will also see an increase in that rate 
component. The increases to the transmission charges are due to 
including projected additions and replacements to Southwestern's 
aging transmission facilities since the last rate change and a 
transmission-specific cost related to participation in the Southwest 
Power Pool Regional Transmission Organization.
    Consistent with FERC's Order No. 888, Southwestern will continue 
charging for the six ancillary services under Rate Schedule P-13 and 
Rate Schedule NFTS-13, and offering non-Federal transmission service 
under Rate Schedule NFTS-13. Southwestern's rate design has 
separated the ancillary services for all transmission service. Two 
ancillary services, Scheduling, System Control and Dispatch Service 
together with Reactive and Voltage Support Service, are required for 
every transmission transaction. These charges are also a part of the 
capacity rate for Federal power. This is consistent with 
Southwestern's long-standing practice of charging for the sale and 
delivery of Federal power in its Federal demand charge. The 
remaining ancillary services will be made available to any 
transmission user within Southwestern's balancing area, including 
Federal power customers. The rate schedules for Peaking Power and 
Non-Federal Transmission Service reflect these charges. Network 
transmission service is provided to those who have contracted for 
the service, but only for non-Federal deliveries. The rate for and 
application of this service are identified in the Non-Federal 
Transmission/Interconnection Facilities Service Rate Schedule, NFTS-
13.
    With respect to the Purchased Power Adder (PPA), Southwestern 
proposed, as in all previous proposals beginning with the 1983 
implementation of the purchased power rate component, that the Adder 
is set equal to the current average long-term purchased power 
revenue requirement. As shown in the Rate Design Study, the amount 
is determined by dividing the estimated total average direct 
purchased power costs by Southwestern's total annual contractual 
1200-hour peaking energy commitments to the customers (exclusive of 
contract support arrangements). In Southwestern's rate proposal, the 
resulting Adder decreases from the current $0.0062 per kWh of 
peaking energy to $0.0059 per kWh of peaking energy. The total 
revenue created through application of this Adder should enable 
Southwestern to cover its average annual purchased power costs.

COMMENTS AND RESPONSES

    Southwestern received no comments or questions during the public 
participation period.

AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION

    Information regarding this rate proposal, including studies, 
comments and other supporting material, is available for public 
review and comment in the offices of Southwestern Power 
Administration, One West Third Street, Tulsa, OK 74103.

ADMINISTRATION'S CERTIFICATION

    The July 2013 Revised PRS indicates that the increased power 
rates will repay all costs of the Integrated System including 
amortization of the power investment consistent with the provisions 
of Department of Energy Order No. RA 6120.2. In accordance with 
Delegation Order No. 00-037.00 (December 6, 2001) and Section 5 of 
the Flood Control Act of 1944, the Administrator has determined that 
the proposed System rates are consistent with applicable law and the 
lowest possible rates consistent with sound business principles.

ENVIRONMENT

    The environmental impact of the proposed System rates was 
evaluated in consideration of DOE's guidelines for implementing the 
procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act and 
was determined to fall within the class of actions that are 
categorically excluded (10 CFR 1021) from the requirements of 
preparing either an Environmental Impact Statement or an 
Environmental Assessment.

ORDER

    In view of the foregoing and pursuant to the authority delegated 
to me by the Secretary of Energy, I hereby confirm, approve and 
place in effect on an interim basis, effective October 1, 2013, the 
following Southwestern Integrated System Rate Schedules which shall 
remain in effect on an interim basis through September 30, 2017, or 
until the FERC confirms and approves the rates on a final basis.

Dated: September 30, 2013.

charges for such month will be reduced for each such reduction in 
service by an amount computed under the formula:

R = (C x K x H) / S

with the factors defined as follows:

R = The dollar amount of reduction in the monthly total capacity 
charges for a particular reduction of not less than two consecutive 
hours during any month, except that the total amount of any such 
reduction shall not exceed the product of the Customer's capacity 
charges associated with Hydro Peaking Power times the Peaking 
Billing Demand.
C = The Customer's capacity charges associated with Hydro Peaking 
Power for the Peaking Billing Demand for such month.
K = The reduction in kilowatts in Peaking Billing Demand for a 
particular event.
H = The number of hours duration of such particular reduction.
S = The number of hours that Peaking Energy is scheduled during such

    Not more than twice annually, the Purchased Power Adder of 
$0.0059 (5.9 mills) per kilowatthour of Peaking Energy, as noted in 
this Rate Schedule, may be adjusted by the Administrator, 
Southwestern, by an amount up to a total of $0.0059 (5.9 
mills) per kilowatthour per year, as calculated by the following 
formula:

ADJ = (PURCH - EST + DIF) / SALES

with the factors defined as follows:

ADJ = The dollar per kilowatthour amount of the total adjustment, 
plus or minus, to be applied to the net Purchased Power Adder, 
rounded to the nearest $0.0001 per kilowatthour, provided that the 
total ADJ to be applied in any year shall not vary from the then-

    Unless otherwise specified by contract, for any particular 
month, a charge for transformation service will be assessed on the 
greater of (1) that month's highest metered demand, or (2) the 
highest metered demand recorded during the previous 11 months, at 
any point of delivery. For the purpose of this Rate Schedule, the 
highest metered demand will be based on all deliveries, of both 
Federal and non-Federal energy, from the System of Southwestern, at 
such point during such month.

2.4. Ancillary Services Rates, Terms, and Conditions

2.4.1. Capacity Charges for Ancillary Services

2.4.1.1. Regulation and Frequency Response Service

associated energy from and within Southwestern's Balancing Authority 
Area. Where available, such Ancillary Services must be taken from 
Southwestern; unless, arrangements are made in accordance with 
Section 2.4.4 of this Rate Schedule.

2.4.3. Applicability of Charges for Ancillary Services

    For any month, the charges for Ancillary Services for deliveries 
of Hydro Peaking Power shall be based on the Peaking Billing Demand.
    The daily charge for Spinning Operating Reserve Service and 
Supplemental Operating Reserve Service for non-Federal generation 
inside Southwestern's Balancing Authority Area shall be applied to 
the greater of Southwestern's previous day's estimate of the peak, 
or the actual peak, in kilowatts, of the internal non-Federal 
generation.

2.4.4. Provision of Ancillary Services by Others

    Customers for which Ancillary Services are made available as 
specified above, must inform Southwestern by written notice of the 
Ancillary Services which they do not intend to take and purchase 
from Southwestern, and of their election to provide all or part of 
such Ancillary Services from their own resources or from a third 
party.
    Subject to Southwestern's approval of the ability of such 
resources or third parties to meet Southwestern's technical and 
operational requirements for provision of such Ancillary Services, 
the Customer may change the Ancillary Services which it takes from 
Southwestern and/or from other sources at the beginning of any month 
upon the greater of 60 days notice or upon completion of any 
necessary equipment modifications necessary to accommodate such 
change; Provided, That, if the Customer chooses not to take 
Regulation and Frequency Response Service, which includes the 
associated Regulation Purchased Adder, the Customer must pursue 
these services from a different host Balancing Authority; thereby 
moving all metered loads and resources from Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area to the Balancing Authority Area of the new host 
Balancing Authority. Until such time as that meter reconfiguration 
is accomplished, the Customer will be charged for the Regulation and 
Frequency Response Service and applicable Adder then in effect. The 
Customer must notify Southwestern by July 1 of this choice, to be 
effective the subsequent calendar year.

2.4.5. Regulation Purchased Adder

    Southwestern has determined the amount of energy used from 
storage to provide Regulation and Frequency Response Service in 
order to meet Southwestern's Balancing Authority Area requirements. 
The replacement value of such energy used shall be recovered through 
the Regulation Purchased Adder. The Regulation Purchased Adder 
during the time period of January 1 through December 31 of the 
current calendar year is based on the average annual use of energy 
from storage \1\ for Regulation and Frequency Response Service and 
Southwestern's estimated purchased power price for the corresponding 
year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The average annual use of energy from storage for Regulation 
and Frequency Response Service is based on Southwestern studies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Regulation Purchased Adder will be phased in over a period 
of four (4) years as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Regulation purchased adder for the
             Year                incremental replacement value of energy
                                            used from storage
------------------------------------------------------------------------
2014                            \1/4\ of the average annual use of
                                 energy from storage x 2014 Purchased
                                 Power price.
2015                            \1/2\ of the average annual use of
                                 energy from storage x 2015 Purchased
                                 Power price.
2016                            \3/4\ of the average annual use of
                                 energy from storage x 2016 Purchased
                                 Power price.
2017 and thereafter             The total average annual use of energy
                                 from storage x the applicable Purchased
                                 Power price.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.4.5.1. Applicability of Regulation Purchased Adder

    The replacement value of the estimated annual use of energy from 
storage for Regulation and Frequency Response Service shall be 
recovered by Customers located within Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority

[[Page 62621]]

Area on a non-coincident peak ratio share basis, divided into twelve 
equal monthly payments, in accordance with the formula in Section 
2.4.5.2.
    If the Regulation Purchased Adder is determined and applied 
under Southwestern's Rate Schedule NFTS-11, then it shall not be 
applied here.

2.4.5.2. Procedure for Determining Regulation Purchased Adder

    Unless otherwise specified by contract, the Regulation Purchased 
Adder for an individual Customer shall be based on the following 
formula rate, calculated to include the replacement value of the 
estimated annual use of energy from storage by Southwestern for 
Regulation and Frequency Response Service.

RPA = The Regulation Purchased Adder for an individual Customer per 
month, which is as follows:

[(L Customer / L Total) x RP Total 
] / 12

    with the factors defined as follows:

L Customer = The sum in MW of the following three 
factors:

    (1) The Customer's highest metered load plus generation used to 
serve the Customer's load that is accounted for through a reduction 
in the Customer's metered load (referred to as `generation behind 
the meter') during the previous calendar year, and
    (2) The Customer's highest rate of Scheduled Exports \2\ during 
the previous calendar year, and
    (3) The Customer's highest rate of Scheduled Imports \2\ during 
the previous calendar year.

    \2\ Scheduled Exports and Scheduled Imports are transactions, 
such as sales and purchases respectively, which are in addition to a 
Customer's metered load that contribute to Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area need for regulation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

L Total = The sum of all L Customer factors 
for all Customers that were inside Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area at the beginning of the previous calendar year in MW.
RP Total = The ``net'' cost in dollars and cents based on 
Southwestern's estimated purchased power price for the corresponding 
year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies 
multiplied by the average annual use of energy from storage, as 
provided for in the table in Section 2.4.5, to support 
Southwestern's ability to regulate within its Balancing Authority 
Area. The ``net'' cost in dollars and cents shall be adjusted by 
subtracting the product of the quantity of such average annual use 
of energy from storage in MWh and Southwestern's highest rate in 
dollars per MWh for Supplemental Peaking Energy during the previous 
calendar year.

    For Customers that have aggregated their load, resources, and 
scheduling into a single node by contract within Southwestern's 
Balancing Authority Area, the individual Customer's respective 
Regulation Purchased Adder shall be that Customer's ratio share of 
the Regulation Purchased Adder established for the node. Such ratio 
share shall be determined for the Customer on a non-coincident basis 
and shall be calculated for the Customer from their highest metered 
load plus generation behind the meter.

2.4.6. Energy Imbalance Service Limitations

    Energy Imbalance Service primarily applies to deliveries of 
power and energy which are required to satisfy a Customer's load. As 
Hydro Peaking Power and associated energy are limited by contract, 
the Energy Imbalance Service bandwidth specified for Non-Federal 
Transmission Service does not apply to deliveries of Hydro Peaking 
Power, and therefore Energy Imbalance Service is not charged on such 
deliveries. Customers who consume a capacity of Hydro Peaking Power 
greater than their Peaking Contract Demand may be subject to a 
Capacity Overrun Penalty.

3. Hydro Peaking Power Penalties, Terms, and Conditions

3.1. Capacity Overrun Penalty

3.1.1. Penalty Charge for Capacity Overrun

    For each hour during which Hydro Peaking Power was provided at a 
rate greater than that to which the Customer is entitled, the 
Customer will be charged a Capacity Overrun Penalty at the following 
rates:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Rate per
                Months associated with charge                  kilowatt
------------------------------------------------------------------------
March, April, May, October, November, December..............       $0.15
January, February, June, July, August, September............        0.30
------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.1.2. Applicability of Capacity Overrun Penalty

    Customers which have loads within Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area are obligated by contract to provide resources, over 
and above the Hydro Peaking Power and associated energy purchased 
from Southwestern, sufficient to meet their loads. A Capacity 
Overrun Penalty shall be applied only when the formulas provided in 
Customers' respective Power Sales Contracts indicate an overrun on 
Hydro Peaking Power, and investigation determines that all 
resources, both firm and non-firm, which were available at the time 
of the apparent overrun were insufficient to meet the Customer's 
load.

3.2. Energy Overrun Penalty

3.2.1. Penalty Charge for Energy Overrun

    $0.1034 per kilowatthour for each kilowatthour of overrun.

3.2.2. Applicability of Energy Overrun Penalty

    By contract, the Customer is subject to limitations on the 
maximum amounts of Peaking Energy which may be scheduled under the 
Customer's Power Sales Contract. When the Customer schedules an 
amount in excess of such maximum amounts, such Customer is subject 
to the Energy Overrun Penalty.

3.3. Power Factor Penalty

3.3.1. Requirements Related to Power Factor

    Any Customer served from facilities owned by or available by 
contract to Southwestern will be required to maintain a power factor 
of not less than 95 percent and will be subject to the following 
provisions.

3.3.2. Determination of Power Factor

    The power factor will be determined for all Demand Periods and 
shall be calculated under the formula:
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TN22OC13.012

with the factors defined as follows:

PF = The power factor for any Demand Period of the month.
kWh = The total quantity of energy which is delivered during such 
Demand Period to the point of delivery or interconnection in 
accordance with Section 3.3.4.
rkVAh = The total quantity of reactive kilovolt-ampere-hours (kVARs) 
delivered during such Demand Period to the point of delivery or 
interconnection in accordance with Section 3.3.4.

3.3.3. Penalty Charge for Power Factor

    The Customer shall be assessed a penalty for all Demand Periods 
of a month where the power factor is less than 95 percent lagging. 
For any Demand Period during a particular month such penalty shall 
be in accordance with the following formula:

C = D x (0.95 - LPF) x $0.10

with the factors defined as follows:

C = The charge in dollars to be assessed for any particular Demand 
Period of such month that the determination of power factor ``PF'' 
is calculated to be less than 95 percent lagging.
D = The Customer's demand in kilowatts at the point of delivery for 
such Demand Period in which a low power factor was calculated.
LPF = The lagging power factor, if any, determined by the formula 
``PF'' for such Demand Period.

    If C is negative, then C = zero (0).

3.3.4. Applicability of Power Factor Penalty

    The Power Factor Penalty is applicable to radial 
interconnections with the System of Southwestern. The total Power 
Factor Penalty for any month shall be the sum of all charges ``C'' 
for all Demand Periods of such month. No penalty is assessed for 
leading power factor. Southwestern, in its sole judgment and at its 
sole option, may determine whether power factor calculations should 
be applied to (i) a single physical point of delivery, (ii) a 
combination of physical points of delivery where a Customer has a 
single, electrically integrated load, (iii) or interconnections. The 
general criteria for such decision shall be that, given the 
configuration of the Customer's and Southwestern's systems, 
Southwestern will determine, in its sole judgment and at its sole 
option, whether the power factor calculation more accurately 
assesses the detrimental impact on Southwestern's system when the 
above formula is calculated for a single physical point of delivery, 
a combination of physical points of delivery, or for an

[[Page 62622]]

interconnection as specified by an Interconnection Agreement.
    Southwestern, at its sole option, may reduce or waive Power 
Factor Penalties when, in Southwestern's sole judgment, low power 
factor conditions were not detrimental to the System of Southwestern 
due to particular loading and voltage conditions at the time the 
power factor dropped below 95 percent lagging.

2.6.5.1. Applicability of Regulation Purchased Adder

    The replacement value of the estimated annual use of energy from 
storage for Regulation and Frequency Response Service shall be 
recovered by Customers located within Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area on a non-coincident peak ratio share basis, divided 
into twelve equal monthly payments, in accordance with the formula 
in Section 2.4.5.2.
    If the Regulation Purchased Adder is determined and applied 
under Southwestern's Rate Schedule NFTS-11, then it shall not be 
applied here.

2.6.5.2. Procedure for Determining Regulation Purchased Adder

    Unless otherwise specified by contract, the Regulation Purchased 
Adder for an individual Customer shall be based on the following 
formula rate, calculated to include the replacement value of the 
estimated annual use of energy from storage by Southwestern for 
Regulation and Frequency Response Service.

RPA = The Regulation Purchased Adder for an individual Customer per 
month, which is as follows:

[(LCustomer / LTotal) x RPTotal] / 
12

with the factors defined as follows:

LCustomer = The sum in MW of the following three factors:

    (1) The Customer's highest metered load plus generation used to 
serve the Customer's load that is accounted for through a reduction 
in the Customer's metered load (referred to as `generation behind 
the meter') during the previous calendar year, and
    (2) The Customer's highest rate of Scheduled Exports\2\ during 
the previous calendar year, and
(3) The Customer's highest rate of Scheduled Imports\2\ during the 
previous calendar year.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Scheduled Exports and Scheduled Imports are transactions, 
such as sales and purchases respectively, which are in addition to a 
Customer's metered load that contribute to Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area need for regulation.

LTotal = The sum of all LCustomer factors for 
all Customers that were inside Southwestern's Balancing Authority 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Area at the beginning of the previous calendar year in MW.

RPTotal = The ``net'' cost in dollars and cents based on 
Southwestern's estimated purchased power price for the corresponding 
year from the most currently approved Power Repayment Studies 
multiplied by the average annual use of energy from storage, as 
provided for in the table in Section 2.4.5, to support 
Southwestern's ability to regulate within its Balancing Authority 
Area. The ``net'' cost in dollars and cents shall be adjusted by 
subtracting the product of the quantity of such average annual use 
of energy from storage in MWh and Southwestern's highest rate in 
dollars per MWh for Supplemental Peaking Energy during the previous 
calendar year.

    For Customers that have aggregated their load, resources, and 
scheduling into a single node by contract within Southwestern's 
Balancing Authority Area, the individual Customer's respective 
Regulation Purchased Adder shall be that Customer's ratio share of 
the Regulation Purchased Adder established for the node. Such ratio 
share shall be determined for the Customer on a non-coincident basis 
and shall be calculated for the Customer from their highest metered 
load plus generation behind the meter.

2.6.6. Energy Imbalance Service Limitations

    Energy Imbalance Service primarily applies to deliveries of 
power and energy which are required to satisfy a Customer's load. As 
Hydro Peaking Power and associated energy are limited by contract, 
the Energy Imbalance Service bandwidth specified for Non-Federal 
Transmission Service does not apply to deliveries of Hydro Peaking 
Power, and therefore Energy Imbalance Service is not charged on such 
deliveries. Customers who consume a capacity of Hydro Peaking Power 
greater than their Peaking Contract Demand may be subject to a 
Capacity Overrun Penalty.
    Energy delivered or received within the authorized bandwidth for 
this service is accounted for as an inadvertent flow and will be 
netted against flows in the future. The inadvertent flow in any 
given hour will only be offset with the flows in the corresponding 
hour of a day in the same category. Unless otherwise specified by 
contract, the two categories of days are weekdays and weekend days/
North American Electric Reliability Corporation holidays, and this 
process will result in a separate inadvertent accumulation for each 
hour of the two categories of days. The hourly accumulations in the 
current month will be added to the hourly inadvertent balances from 
the previous month, resulting in a month-end balance for each hour.
    The Customer is required to adjust the scheduling of resources 
in such a way as to reduce the accumulation towards zero. It is 
recognized that the inadvertent hourly flows

[[Page 62626]]

can be both negative and positive, and that offsetting flows should 
deter a significant accumulation of inadvertent. Unless otherwise 
specified by contract, in the event any hourly month-end balance 
exceeds 12 MWhs, the excess will be subject to Section 3.1 or 
Section 3.2 of this Rate Schedule, depending on the direction of the 
accumulation.

3. Non-Federal Transmission/Interconnection Facilities Service 
Penalties, Terms, and Conditions

3.1. Capacity Overrun Penalty

3.1.1. Penalty Charge for Capacity Overrun

    For each hour during which energy flows outside the authorized 
bandwidth, the Customer will be obliged to purchase such energy at 
the following rates:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Rate per
                Months associated with charge                  kilowatt
------------------------------------------------------------------------
March, April, May, October, November, December..............       $0.15
January, February, June, July, August, September............        0.30
------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.1.2. Applicability of Capacity Overrun Penalty

    Customers who receive deliveries within Southwestern's Balancing 
Authority Area are obligated to provide resources sufficient to meet 
their loads. Such obligation is not related to the amount of 
transmission capacity that such Customers may-have reserved for 
transmission service to a particular load. In the event that a 
Customer underschedules its resources to serve its load, resulting 
in a difference between resources and actual metered load (adjusted 
for transformer losses as applicable) outside the authorized 
bandwidth for Energy Imbalance Service for any hour, then such 
Customer is subject to the Capacity Overrun Penalty.

3.2. Unauthorized Use of Energy Imbalance Service by Overscheduling 
of Resources

    In the event that a Customer schedules greater resources than 
are needed to serve its load, such that energy flows at rates beyond 
the authorized bandwidth for the use of Energy Imbalance Service, 
Southwestern retains such energy at no cost to Southwestern and with 
no obligation to return such energy.

3.3. Power Factor Penalty

3.3.1. Requirements Related to Power Factor

    Any Customer served from facilities owned by or available by 
contract to Southwestern will be required to maintain a power factor 
of not less than 95 percent and will be subject to the following 
provisions.

3.3.2. Determination of Power Factor

    The power factor will be determined for all Demand Periods and 
shall be calculated under the formula:
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TN22OC13.013

with the factors defined as follows:

PF = The power factor for any Demand Period of the month.
kWh = The total quantity of energy which is delivered during such 
Demand Period to the point of delivery or interconnection in 
accordance with Section 3.3.4.
rkVAh = The total quantity of reactive kilovolt-ampere-hours (kVARs) 
delivered during such Demand Period to the point of delivery or 
interconnection in accordance with Section 3.3.4.

3.3.3. Penalty Charge for Power Factor

    The Customer shall be assessed a penalty for all Demand Periods 
of a month where the power factor is less than 95 percent lagging. 
For any Demand Period during a particular month such penalty shall 
be in accordance with the following formula:

C = D x (0.95 - LPF) x $0.10

with the factors defined as follows:

C = The charge in dollars to be assessed for any particular Demand 
Period of such month that the determination of power factor ``PF'' 
is calculated to be less than 95 percent lagging.
D = The Customer's demand in kilowatts at the point of delivery for 
such Demand Period in which a low power factor was calculated.
LPF = The lagging power factor, if any, determined by the formula 
``PF'' for such Demand Period.

    If C is negative, then C = zero (0).

3.3.4. Applicability of Power Factor Penalty

    The Power Factor Penalty is applicable to radial 
interconnections with the System of Southwestern. The total Power 
Factor Penalty for any month shall be the sum of all charges ``C'' 
for all Demand Periods of such month. No penalty is assessed for 
leading power factor. Southwestern, in its sole judgment and at its 
sole option, may determine whether power factor calculations should 
be applied to (i) a single physical point of delivery, (ii) a 
combination of physical points of delivery where a Customer has a 
single, electrically integrated load, (iii) or interconnections. The 
general criteria for such decision shall be that, given the 
configuration of the Customer's and Southwestern's systems, 
Southwestern will determine, in its sole judgment and at its sole 
option, whether the power factor calculation more accurately 
assesses the detrimental impact on Southwestern's system when the 
above formula is calculated for a single physical point of delivery, 
a combination of physical points of delivery, or for an 
interconnection as specified by an Interconnection Agreement.
    Southwestern, at its sole option, may reduce or waive Power 
Factor Penalties when, in Southwestern's sole judgment, low power 
factor conditions were not detrimental to the System of Southwestern 
due to particular loading and voltage conditions at the time the 
power factor dropped below 95 percent lagging.

4. Non-Federal Transmission/Interconnection Facilities Service 
Miscellaneous Rates, Terms, and Conditions

4.1. Real Power Losses

    Customers are required to self-provide all Real Power Losses for 
non-Federal energy transmitted by Southwestern on behalf of such 
Customers under the provisions detailed below.
    Real Power Losses are computed as four (4) percent of the total 
amount of non-Federal energy transmitted by Southwestern. The 
Customer's monthly Real Power Losses are computed each month on a 
megawatthour basis as follows:

ML = 0.04 x NFE

with the factors defined as follows:

ML = The total monthly loss energy, rounded to the nearest 
megawatthour, to be scheduled by a Customer for receipt by 
Southwestern for Real Power Losses associated with non-Federal 
energy transmitted on behalf of such Customer; and
NFE = The amount of non-Federal energy that was transmitted by 
Southwestern on behalf of a Customer during a particular month.

    The Customer must schedule or cause to be scheduled to 
Southwestern, Real Power Losses for which it is responsible subject 
to the following conditions:
    4.1.1. The Customer shall schedule and deliver Real Power Losses 
back to Southwestern during the second month after they were 
incurred by Southwestern in the transmission of the Customer's non-
Federal power and energy over the System of Southwestern unless such 
Customer has accounted for Real Power Losses as part of a metering 
arrangement with Southwestern.
    4.1.2. On or before the twentieth day of each month, 
Southwestern shall determine the amount of non-Federal loss energy 
it provided on behalf of the Customer during the previous month and 
provide a written schedule to the Customer setting forth hour-by-
hour the quantities of non-Federal energy to be delivered to 
Southwestern as losses during the next month.
    4.1.3. Real Power Losses not delivered to Southwestern by the 
Customer, according to the schedule provided, during the month in 
which such losses are due shall be billed by Southwestern to the 
Customer to adjust the end-of-month loss energy balance to zero (0) 
megawatthours and the Customer shall be obliged to purchase such 
energy at the following rates:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              Rate per
               Months associated with charge                kilowatthour
------------------------------------------------------------------------
March, April, May, October, November, December............        $0.15
January, February, June, July, August, September..........         0.30
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4.1.4. Real Power Losses delivered to Southwestern by the 
Customer in excess of the losses due during the month shall be 
purchased by Southwestern from the Customer at a rate per 
megawatthour equal to Southwestern's rate per megawatthour for 
Supplemental Peaking Energy, as set forth in Southwestern's then-
effective Rate Schedule for Hydro Peaking Power to adjust such 
hourly end-of-month loss energy balance to zero (0) megawatthours.
