In accordance with Delegation Order No. 00–037.00A (October 25, 2013), and Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, the Administrator has determined that the proposed Willis power rate is consistent with applicable law and is the lowest possible rate to the customer consistent with sound business principles. ENVIRONMENT The environmental impact of the power rate increase proposal was evaluated in consideration of the Department of Energy’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 from the requirements of preparing either an Environmental Impact Statement or an Environmental Assessment (10 CFR part 1021, App. B to subpart D, § B1.1 ‘‘Changing rates & prices’’). to final approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

This rate shall remain in effect on an interim basis through September 30, 2019, or until the FERC confirms and approves the rate on a final basis. 1.1. These rates shall be applicable regardless of the quantity of Hydro Power and Energy available or delivered to SRMPA; provided, however, that if an Uncontrollable Force prevents utilization of both of the project’s power generating units for an entire billing period, and if during such billing period water releases were being made which otherwise would have been used to generate Hydro Power and Energy, then Southwestern shall, upon request by SRMPA, suspend billing for subsequent billing periods, until such time as at least one of the project’s generating units is again available. 1.2. The term ‘‘Uncontrollable Force,’’ as used herein, shall mean any force which is not within the control of the party affected, including, but not limited to, failure of water supply, failure of facilities, flood, earthquake, storm, lightning, fire, epidemic, riot, civil disturbance, labor disturbance, sabotage, war, acts of war, terrorist acts, or restraint by court of general jurisdiction, which by exercise of due diligence and foresight such party could not reasonably have been expected to avoid.
