Notice of Public Meeting and Webinar: Distribution System Storage Facility Inspection and Cleaning, 52647-52648 [2014-21073]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 171 / Thursday, September 4, 2014 / Notices Power Repayment Study using the existing Robert D. Willis Rate Schedule.2 Guidelines for preparation of power repayment studies are included in DOE Order No. RA 6120.2 entitled Power Marketing Administration Financial Reporting. This study indicates that Southwestern’s legal requirement to repay the investment in the power generating facility for power and energy marketed by Southwestern will not be met without an increase in revenues. The need for increased revenues is primarily due to increased investments and replacements in Corps hydroelectric generating facilities and a slight increase in the costs associated with operations and maintenance. The 2014 Revised Power Repayment Study shows that additional annual revenues of $109,164 (a 10.2 percent increase) are needed to satisfy repayment criteria. Because of concerns expressed by Southwestern’s customers during the development of the 2014 Power Repayment Studies regarding the magnitude of the proposed increase, Southwestern is proposing to increase revenue in two steps over a two-year period. Because Southwestern’s current rates are sufficient to recover all average operation and maintenance expenses during the next two years, the ability to meet both annual and long-term repayment criteria is satisfied by increasing revenues in two steps over the period. The first step of the rate increase, beginning January 1, 2015, would incorporate one half of the required revenue or 5.1 percent ($54,582). The second step of the rate increase, beginning October 1, 2015, and ending on September 30, 2018, would incorporate the remaining one half of the revenue requirement ($54,582 or 5.1 percent). Southwestern will continue to perform its Power Repayment Studies annually, and if the 2015 results should indicate the need for additional revenues, another rate filing will be conducted and updated revenue requirements implemented for FY 2016 and thereafter. Procedures for public participation in power and transmission rate adjustments of the Power Marketing Administrations are found at title 10, part 903, subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 903). Southwestern’s customers and other interested parties may request copies of the 2014 Robert D. Willis Power Repayment Studies and the proposed 2 FERC, on April 29, 2013, confirmed and approved the existing Robert D. Willis rate schedule for the period October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2016. See 143 FERC ¶ 62,067. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:14 Sep 03, 2014 Jkt 232001 Rate Schedule.

comment on the value and cost of periodic distribution system storage 
tank inspection and cleaning. The EPA received comments regarding
