Unlike the Commission’s statutory authority under the Federal Power Act, the Commission’s authority under sections 7(a) and 7(k) of the Northwest Power Act does not include the power to modify the rates. The responsibility for developing rates in the first instance is vested with Bonneville’s Administrator. The rates are then submitted to the Commission for approval or disapproval. In this regard, the Commission’s role can be viewed as an appellate one: to affirm or remand the rates submitted to it for review.23 11. Moreover, review at this interim stage is further limited. In view of the volume and complexity of a Bonneville rate application, such as the one now before the Commission in this filing, and the limited period in advance of the requested effective date in which to review the application,24 the Commission generally defers resolution of issues on the merits of Bonneville’s application until the order on final confirmation. Thus, the proposed rates, if not patently deficient, generally are approved on an interim basis and the parties are afforded an additional opportunity in which to raise issues with regard to Bonneville’s filing.25 12. The Commission declines at this time to grant final confirmation and approval of Bonneville’s proposed wholesale power and transmission rates. The Commission’s preliminary review nevertheless indicates that Bonneville’s wholesale power and transmission rates filing appears to meet the statutory standards and the minimum threshold filing requirements of Part 300 of the Commission’s regulations.26 Moreover, the Commission’s preliminary review of Bonneville’s submittal indicates that it does not contain any patent deficiencies. The proposed rates therefore will be approved on an interim basis pending our further review. We note, as well, that no one will be harmed by this decision because interim approval allows Bonneville’s rates to go 23 See, e.g., United States Department of Energy— Bonneville Power Admin., 67 FERC ¶ 61,351, at 62,216–17 (1994); see also, e.g., Aluminum Co. of America v.

In addition, we will provide an additional period of time for parties to file comments and reply comments on issues related to final confirmation and approval of Bonneville’s proposed rates. This will ensure that the record in this proceeding is complete and fully developed. The Commission orders: (A) Interim approval of Bonneville’s proposed wholesale power and transmission rates is hereby granted, to become effective on October 1, 2015, through September 30, 2017, subject to refund with interest as set forth in section 300.20(c) of the Commission’s regulations 28 pending final action and either their approval or disapproval. (B) Within thirty (30) days of the date of this order, parties who wish to do so may file additional comments regarding final confirmation and approval of Bonneville’s proposed rates. Parties who wish to do so may file reply comments within twenty (20) days thereafter. (C) The Secretary shall promptly publish this order in the Federal Register. By the Commission.

By Delegation Order No. 00–037.00A, effective December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy delegated to Southeastern’s Administrator the authority to develop power and transmission rates, to the Deputy Secretary of Energy the authority to confirm, approve, and place in effect such rates on interim basis, and to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) the authority to confirm, approve, and place into effect on a final basis or to disapprove rates developed by the Administrator under the delegation. This rate is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to that delegation order. Background Power from the Kerr-Philpott Projects is presently sold under Wholesale E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1 57354 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 184 / Wednesday, September 23, 2015 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Power Rate Schedules VA–1–B, VA–2– B, VA–3–B, VA–4–B, CP&L–1–B, CP&L– 2–B, CP&L–3–B, CP&L–4–B, AP–1–B, AP–2–B, AP–3–B, AP–4–B, NC–1–B, and Replacement–2–A. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC on March 11, 2011, for a period ending September 30, 2015 (134 FERC 62,233). Public Notice and Comment Notice of a proposed rate adjustment for the Kerr-Philpott System was published in the Federal Register (80 FR 12819) on March 11, 2015. The notice advised interested parties that a public information and comment forum would be held in Boydton, Virginia on April 21, 2015. Written comments were due on or before June 9, 2015. The proposed rate adjustment was a reduction of about six percent (6%). Subsequent to the Public Information and Comment Forum on April 21, Southeastern discovered an error due to omissions in the repayment study used to develop the proposed rate schedules. Two accounting lines were omitted from the estimated Corps O&M expenses included in the study. The accounting lines were Work Category Code 602, Operation for Flood Damage Reduction, and Work Category Code 612, Maintenance for Flood Damage Reduction. On June 1, 2015, Southeastern sent a letter to all KerrPhilpott customers notifying them of the error and notifying them Southeastern intended to add the omitted accounting lines and correct the error in the rate schedules Southeastern would recommend to the Deputy Secretary. After these corrections, the proposed rate is an increase of about 2.2 percent. Southeastern received comments from one source, the Southeast Federal Power Customers, Inc., as a result of the above notifications. The comments and Southeastern’s response are below. Comment: The SeFPC questions whether the expenses in accounts WCC 602 and 612 should properly be assigned to hydropower as a joint expense. Given the Congressional Mandate to provide flood control at the Kerr and Philpott projects, the assignment of these costs appears to be arbitrary, capricious, and not consistent with the authorizing statutes. The SeFPC would ask SEPA to review the inclusion of these costs and work with Corps representatives to remove such expenses as joint expense for purpose of the proposed rate. Failure to take this action would impose over $10 million in additional cost for the hydropower customers over the five year study period in the repayment study which should properly be borne by the flood control purpose. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 Sep 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 The referenced Work Category Codes 602 and 612 contain operation and maintenance expenses associated with flood risk management. The Corps has taken the position the John H. Kerr and Philpott final cost allocations state that the only specific costs at these reservoirs are Power and Recreation, and that as a result, the Corps cannot charge costs to the flood control purpose at these projects. The $10 million assigned to hydropower and disputed by SeFPC include the operations, maintenance and readiness of equipment associated with spillways, sluices, pumping plants and earthen dams. The Corps has included these costs in the O&M expenses included in the financial statements provided to Southeastern for the John H. Kerr and Philpott projects. SeFPC has raised legitimate questions about the nature and assignment of WCC s 602 and 612. Further study of this issue is necessary. Southeastern will continue to discuss with the Corps the appropriateness of assigning these costs solely to hydropower. Southeastern and the Corps have discussed the need for a new authorized purpose allocation study and agreed to jointly fund the effort. Once completed, Southeastern and the Corps will work together to determine whether costs in these accounts should be allocated to purposes other than Power and Recreation. A reallocation could significantly reduce the proportion of charges assigned to Southeastern’s power customers and ensure that costs are being assigned to appropriate costcausers. Discussion System Repayment An examination of Southeastern’s revised system power repayment study, prepared in July 2015, for the KerrPhilpott System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are paid within the appropriate repayment period required by existing law and DOE Procedure RA 6120.2. The Administrator of Southeastern Power Administration has certified that the rates are consistent with applicable law and that they are the lowest possible rates to customers consistent with sound business principles, pursuant to section 5 of the Flood Control Act (16 U.S.C.A.835(s)). Environmental Impact Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the adjusted rates would not significantly PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C.A 4332), the proposed action is not a major Federal action for which preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is required. Availability of Information Information regarding these rates, including studies and other supporting materials and transcripts of the public information and comment forum, is available for public review in the offices of Southeastern Power Administration, 1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton, Georgia 30635, and in the Power Marketing Liaison Office, James Forrestal Building, 1000 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20585.

In the Matter of: Southeastern Power Administration), Kerr-Philpott 
System Power Rates), Rate Order No. SEPA-58

Order Confirming and Approving Power Rates on an Interim Basis

    Pursuant to Sections 302(a) of the Department of Energy 
Organization Act, Public Law 95-91, the functions of the Secretary of 
the Interior and the Federal Power Commission under Section 5 of the 
Flood Control Act of 1944, 16 U.S.C. 825s, relating to the Southeastern 
Power Administration (Southeastern), were transferred to and vested in 
the Secretary of Energy. By Delegation Order No. 00-037.00A, effective 
December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy delegated to Southeastern's 
Administrator the authority to develop power and transmission rates, to 
the Deputy Secretary of Energy the authority to confirm, approve, and 
place in effect such rates on interim basis, and to the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission (FERC) the authority to confirm, approve, and 
place into effect on a final basis or to disapprove rates developed by 
the Administrator under the delegation. This rate is issued by the 
Deputy Secretary pursuant to that delegation order.

Background

    Power from the Kerr-Philpott Projects is presently sold under 
Wholesale

Power Rate Schedules VA-1-B, VA-2-B, VA-3-B, VA-4-B, CP&L-1-B, CP&L-2-
B, CP&L-3-B, CP&L-4-B, AP-1-B, AP-2-B, AP-3-B, AP-4-B, NC-1-B, and 
Replacement-2-A. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC on 
March 11, 2011, for a period ending September 30, 2015 (134 FERC 
62,233).

Public Notice and Comment

    Notice of a proposed rate adjustment for the Kerr-Philpott System 
was published in the Federal Register (80 FR 12819) on March 11, 2015. 
The notice advised interested parties that a public information and 
comment forum would be held in Boydton, Virginia on April 21, 2015. 
Written comments were due on or before June 9, 2015. The proposed rate 
adjustment was a reduction of about six percent (6%).
    Subsequent to the Public Information and Comment Forum on April 21, 
Southeastern discovered an error due to omissions in the repayment 
study used to develop the proposed rate schedules. Two accounting lines 
were omitted from the estimated Corps O&M expenses included in the 
study. The accounting lines were Work Category Code 602, Operation for 
Flood Damage Reduction, and Work Category Code 612, Maintenance for 
Flood Damage Reduction. On June 1, 2015, Southeastern sent a letter to 
all Kerr-Philpott customers notifying them of the error and notifying 
them Southeastern intended to add the omitted accounting lines and 
correct the error in the rate schedules Southeastern would recommend to 
the Deputy Secretary. After these corrections, the proposed rate is an 
increase of about 2.2 percent.
    Southeastern received comments from one source, the Southeast 
Federal Power Customers, Inc., as a result of the above notifications. 
The comments and Southeastern's response are below.
    Comment: The SeFPC questions whether the expenses in accounts WCC 
602 and 612 should properly be assigned to hydropower as a joint 
expense. Given the Congressional Mandate to provide flood control at 
the Kerr and Philpott projects, the assignment of these costs appears 
to be arbitrary, capricious, and not consistent with the authorizing 
statutes. The SeFPC would ask SEPA to review the inclusion of these 
costs and work with Corps representatives to remove such expenses as 
joint expense for purpose of the proposed rate. Failure to take this 
action would impose over $10 million in additional cost for the 
hydropower customers over the five year study period in the repayment 
study which should properly be borne by the flood control purpose.
    The referenced Work Category Codes 602 and 612 contain operation 
and maintenance expenses associated with flood risk management. The 
Corps has taken the position the John H. Kerr and Philpott final cost 
allocations state that the only specific costs at these reservoirs are 
Power and Recreation, and that as a result, the Corps cannot charge 
costs to the flood control purpose at these projects.
    The $10 million assigned to hydropower and disputed by SeFPC 
include the operations, maintenance and readiness of equipment 
associated with spillways, sluices, pumping plants and earthen dams. 
The Corps has included these costs in the O&M expenses included in the 
financial statements provided to Southeastern for the John H. Kerr and 
Philpott projects. SeFPC has raised legitimate questions about the 
nature and assignment of WCC s 602 and 612. Further study of this issue 
is necessary. Southeastern will continue to discuss with the Corps the 
appropriateness of assigning these costs solely to hydropower.
    Southeastern and the Corps have discussed the need for a new 
authorized purpose allocation study and agreed to jointly fund the 
effort. Once completed, Southeastern and the Corps will work together 
to determine whether costs in these accounts should be allocated to 
purposes other than Power and Recreation. A reallocation could 
significantly reduce the proportion of charges assigned to 
Southeastern's power customers and ensure that costs are being assigned 
to appropriate cost-causers.

Discussion

System Repayment

    An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment 
study, prepared in July 2015, for the Kerr-Philpott System shows that 
with the proposed rates, all system power costs are paid within the 
appropriate repayment period required by existing law and DOE Procedure 
RA 6120.2. The Administrator of Southeastern Power Administration has 
certified that the rates are consistent with applicable law and that 
they are the lowest possible rates to customers consistent with sound 
business principles, pursuant to section 5 of the Flood Control Act (16 
U.S.C.A.835(s)).

Environmental Impact

    Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the 
rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the 
adjusted rates would not significantly affect the quality of the human 
environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act 
of 1969 (42 U.S.C.A 4332), the proposed action is not a major Federal 
action for which preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is 
required.

    Information regarding these rates, including studies and other 
supporting materials and transcripts of the public information and 
comment forum, is available for public review in the offices of 
Southeastern Power Administration, 1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton, 
Georgia 30635, and in the Power Marketing Liaison Office, James

Order

    In view of the foregoing and pursuant to the authority delegated to 
me by the Secretary of Energy, I hereby confirm and approve on an 
interim basis, effective October 1, 2015, attached Wholesale Power Rate 
Schedules VA-1-C, VA-2-C, VA-3-C, VA-4-C, DEP-1-C, DEP-2-C, DEP-3-C, 
DEP-4-C, AP-1-C, AP-2-C, AP-3-C, AP-4-C, NC-1-C, and Replacement-2-B.

cumulative net revenue available for repayment, Southeastern will 
reduce the base capacity charge by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, up to 
a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per month, and reduce the base energy 
charge by 0.10 mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 mills 
per kilowatt per hour, to be implemented April 1 of the next fiscal 
year. Southeastern will give written notice to the customers of the 
amount of the true-up to the capacity and energy rates by February 1 of 
the next fiscal year.
    Additional rates for transmission and any ancillary services 
provided under this rate schedule shall be the rates charged 
Southeastern Power Administration by the Company or PJM. Future 
adjustments to these rates will become effective upon acceptance for 
filing by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) of the 
Company's rate.
    Transmission:
    $0.775 per kilowatt of total contract demand per month estimated as 
of April 2015, is presented for illustrative purposes.
    Ancillary Services:
    0.34 mills per kilowatt-hour of energy estimated as of April 2015,

the Customer's ratable share of the charges for transmission, 
distribution, and ancillary services paid by the Government. The 
charges for transmission and ancillary services are governed by and 
subject to refund based upon the determination in proceedings before 
the FERC involving the Company's or PJM's Open Access Transmission 
Tariff (OATT).
    Proceedings before FERC involving the OATT or the Distribution 
charge may result in the separation of charges currently included in 
the transmission rate. In this event, the Government may charge the 
Customer for any and all separate transmission, ancillary services, and 
distribution charges paid by the Government in behalf of the Customer. 
These charges could be recovered through a capacity charge or an energy 
charge, as determined by the Government.

estimated cost as of April 2015.
    The tandem transmission charge will recover the cost of 
transmitting power from a project to the border of another transmitting 
system. This rate will be a formulary rate based on the cost to the 
Government for transmission of power from the Philpott project to the 
border of the Virginia Electric and Power Company System and the cost 
to the Government for transmission of power from the John H. Kerr 
Project to the border of the Duke Energy Progress System. These charges 
could be recovered through a capacity charge or an energy charge, as 
determined by the Government.
    Transmission and Ancillary Services:
    The charges for transmission and ancillary services shall be 
governed by and subject to refund based upon the determination in the 
proceeding involving the Company's or PJM's OATT.

non-performance charges to Southeastern. These non-performance charges, 
if incurred, will be allocated to the capacity delivered in PJM 
(currently 120,100 kilowatts) in the month incurred.
    Contract Demand:
    The contract demand is the amount of capacity in kilowatts stated 
in the contract which the Government is obligated to supply and the 
Customer is entitled to receive.
    Energy to be Furnished by the Government:
    The Government will sell to the Customer and the Customer will 
purchase from the Government energy

[[Page 57356]]

each billing month equivalent to a percentage specified by contract of 
the energy made available to the Company (less applicable losses). The 
Customer's contract demand and accompanying energy will be allocated 
proportionately to its individual delivery points served from the 
Company's system. The applicable energy loss factor for transmission is 
specified in the OATT.
    These losses shall be effective until modified by the FERC, 
pursuant to application by the Company or PJM under Section 205 of the 
Federal Power Act or Southeastern Power Administration under Section 
206 of the Federal Power Act or otherwise.
    Billing Month:

    The rates include a true-up of the capacity and energy rates based 
on the variance of the actual cumulative net revenue available for 
repayment from the planned cumulative net revenue available for 
repayment in the table above. For every $100,000 under-recovery of the 
planned cumulative net revenue available for repayment, Southeastern 
will increase the base capacity charge by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, 
up to a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per month, and increase the base 
energy charge by 0.10 mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 
mills per kilowatt per hour, to be implemented April 1 of the next 
fiscal year. For every $100,000 of over-recovery of the planned 
cumulative net revenue available for repayment, Southeastern will 
reduce the base

capacity charge by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, up to a maximum of 
$0.75 per kilowatt per month, and reduce the base energy charge by 0.10 
mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 mills per kilowatt per 
hour, to be implemented April 1 of the next fiscal year. Southeastern 
will give written notice to the customers of the amount of the true-up 
to the capacity and energy rates by February 1 of the next fiscal year.
    Additional rates for Transmission and Ancillary Services provided 
under this rate schedule shall be the rates charged Southeastern Power 
Administration by the Company or PJM. Future adjustments to these rates 
will become effective upon acceptance for filing by the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission (FERC) of the Company's rate.
    Ancillary Services:
    0.34 mills per kilowatt-hour of energy estimated as of April 2015, 
is presented for illustrative purposes.
    The initial charge for transmission and Ancillary Services will be 
the Customer's ratable share of the charges for transmission, 
distribution, and ancillary services paid by the Government. The 
charges for transmission and ancillary services are governed by and 
subject to refund based upon the determination in proceedings before 
the FERC involving the Company's or PJM's Open Access Transmission 
Tariff (OATT).
    Proceedings before FERC involving the OATT or the Distribution 
charge may result in the separation of charges currently included in 
the transmission rate. In this event, the Government may charge the 
Customer for any and all separate transmission, ancillary services, and 
distribution charges paid by the Government in behalf of the Customer. 
These charges could be recovered through a capacity charge or an energy 
charge, as determined by the Government.
    Tandem Transmission Charge:
    $0.42 per kilowatt of total contract demand per month, as an 
estimated cost as of April 2015.
    The tandem transmission charge will recover the cost of 
transmitting power from a project to the border of another transmitting 
system. This rate will be a formulary rate based on the cost to the 
Government for transmission of power from the Philpott project to the 
border of the Virginia Electric and Power Company System and the cost 
to the Government for transmission of power from the John H. Kerr 
Project to the border of the Duke Energy Progress System. These charges 
could be recovered through a capacity charge or an energy charge, as 
determined by the Government.
    Transmission and Ancillary Services:
    The charges for transmission and ancillary services shall be 
governed by and subject to refund based upon the determination in the 
proceeding involving the Company's or PJM's OATT.
    Capacity Performance Non-Performance Charge:
    Requirements of the PJM capacity performance market may lead to 
non-performance charges to Southeastern. These non-performance charges, 
if incurred, will be allocated to the capacity delivered in PJM 
(currently 120,100 kilowatts) in the month incurred.
    Contract Demand:
    The contract demand is the amount of capacity in kilowatts stated 
in the contract which the Government is obligated to supply and the 
Customer is entitled to receive.
    Energy to be Furnished by the Government:
    The Government will sell to the Customer and the Customer will 
purchase from the Government energy each billing month equivalent to a 
percentage specified by contract of the energy made available to the 
Company (less applicable losses). The Customer's contract demand and 
accompanying energy will be allocated proportionately to its individual 
delivery points served from the Company's system. The applicable energy 
loss factor for transmission is specified in the OATT.
    These losses shall be effective until modified by the Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission, pursuant to application by the Company or 
PJM under Section 205 of the Federal Power Act or Southeastern Power 
Administration under Section 206 of the Federal Power Act or otherwise.
    Billing Month:
    The billing month for power sold under this schedule shall end at 
12:00 midnight on the last day of each calendar month.

Administration by the Company. Future adjustments to these rates will 
become effective upon acceptance for filing by the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission (FERC) of the Company's rate.
    Transmission:
    $0.775 per kilowatt of total contract demand per month estimated as 
of April 2015, is presented for illustrative purposes.
    Ancillary Services:
    0.34 mills per kilowatt-hour of energy estimated as of April 2015, 
is presented for illustrative purposes.
    The initial charge for transmission and Ancillary Services will be 
the Customer's ratable share of the charges for transmission, 
distribution, and ancillary services paid by the Government. The 
charges for transmission and ancillary services are governed by and 
subject to refund based upon the determination in proceedings before 
the FERC involving the Company's or PJM's Open Access Transmission 
Tariff (OATT).
    Proceedings before FERC involving the OATT or the Distribution 
charge may result in the separation of charges currently included in 
the transmission rate. In this event, the Government may charge the 
Customer for any and all separate transmission, ancillary services, and 
distribution charges paid by the Government in behalf of the Customer. 
These charges could be recovered through a capacity charge or an energy 
charge, as determined by the Government.
    Tandem Transmission Charge:
    $0.42 per kilowatt of total contract demand per month, as an 
estimated cost as of April 2015
    The tandem transmission charge will recover the cost of 
transmitting power from a project to the border of another transmitting 
system. This rate will be a formulary rate based on the cost to the 
Government for transmission of power from the Philpott project to the 
border of the Virginia Electric and Power Company System and the cost 
to the Government for transmission of power from the John H. Kerr 
Project to the border of the Duke Energy Progress System. These charges 
could be recovered through a capacity charge or an energy charge, as 
determined by the Government.
    Transmission and Ancillary Services:
    The charges for transmission and ancillary services shall be 
governed by and subject to refund based upon the determination in the 
proceeding involving the Company's or PJM's OATT.

    Requirements of the PJM capacity performance market may lead to 
non-performance charges to Southeastern. These non-performance charges, 
if incurred, will be allocated to the capacity delivered in PJM 
(currently 120,100 kilowatts).
    Contract Demand:
    The contract demand is the amount of capacity in kilowatts stated 
in the contract which the Government is obligated to supply and the 
Customer is entitled to receive.
    Energy to be Furnished by the Government:
    The Government will sell to the Customer and the Customer will 
purchase from the Government energy each billing month equivalent to a 
percentage specified by contract of the energy made available to the 
Company (less applicable losses). The Customer's contract demand and 
accompanying energy will be allocated proportionately to its individual 
delivery points served from the Company's system. The applicable energy 
loss factor for transmission is specified in the OATT.
    These losses shall be effective until modified by the Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission, pursuant to application by American 
Electric Power Service Corporation under Section 205 of the Federal 
Power Act or Southeastern Power Administration under Section 206 of the
