By Delegation Order No. 00–037.00A, effective October 25, 2013, the Secretary of Energy delegated to Southeastern’s Administrator the authority to develop power and transmission rates, delegated to the Deputy Secretary 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 (‘‘Commission’’) 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 order is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to this delegation order. BACKGROUND Power from the Jim Woodruff Project is presently sold under Wholesale Power Rate Schedules JW–1–J and JW– 2–F. These rate schedules were approved by the Commission on December 22, 2011, for a period ending September 19, 2016 (171 FERC ¶62,248). By order dated March 31, 2016, (81 FR 18607) these rate schedules were extended to September 30, 2016. Public Notice and Comment Southeastern prepared a Power Repayment Study, dated July 2016, showing revenues at current rates were adequate to meet repayment criteria and generate an estimated cumulative surplus of over $159 million by fiscal year 2066. The rate reduction is due to reduced United States Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Operation and Maintenance expense estimates. Southeastern is proposing a rate reduction of about 24 percent to reduce this surplus. On March 31, 2016, by Federal Register notice (81 FR 18624), Southeastern proposed a rate adjustment. The notice also announced a Public Information and Comment Forum to be held May 5, 2016, in Chattahoochee, Florida. Two parties asked questions at the forum.

Federal Power Customers. All comments received are summarized and 
responded to in the following section.

Staff Review of Comments

    Notice of proposed rate schedules for the Jim Woodruff System was 
published in the Federal Register March 31, 2016 (81 FR 18624). The 
notice advised interested parties that a public information and comment 
forum would be held in Chattahoochee, Florida, on May 5, 2016. The end 
of the comment period was June 29, 2016. Written comments were received 
from one source, the Southeastern Federal Power Customers.
    Written comments received from the Southeastern Federal Power 
Customers and the comments received at the public forum are summarized 
below. Southeastern's response follows each comment.
    Comment 1: Overall, the SeFPC supports the rate proposed by SEPA.
    Response 1: Southeastern has requested the Deputy Secretary to 
approve the proposed rate schedules on an interim basis. The Deputy 
Secretary has approved the proposed rate schedules and Southeastern 
will request the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approve 
the proposed rate schedules on a final basis.
    Comment 2: In our review of the executive summary of the repayment 
study, we noted that SEPA had modeled roughly $2 million in incremental 
investment over the course of the repayment study. The customers desire 
to know the priority of the modeled investment for the Corps.
    Response 2: Southeastern is required to provide for estimated 
replacements in its rate studies. The incremental investment in the 
comment includes governor replacements for generators 1, 2, and 3 which 
the Corps plans to place in service in fiscal year 2018. The Corps has 
provided estimates of future capital investments to Southeastern, which 
include the governor replacements noted. There is no certainty of 
appropriated funding, and Southeastern does not currently have the 
option of customer funding in the Jim Woodruff System.
    Southeastern will continue to work with the customers and the Corps 
to assure appropriate funding of capital investment to ensure reliable, 
cost effective service.

DISCUSSION

System Repayment

    An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment 
study, prepared in July 2016, for the Jim Woodruff Project, shows the 
rates will pay all system power costs within the 50-year repayment 
period required by existing law and DOE Order RA 6120.2. The 
Administrator of Southeastern has certified the rates are consistent 
with applicable law and are the lowest possible rates to preference 
customers consistent with sound business principles.

Environmental Impact

    Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the 
rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded the adjusted 
rates would not significantly affect the quality of the human 
environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act 
of 1969. 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, is available for public review in the offices of 
Southeastern Power Administration, 1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton,

follows:
    Each month, Duke Energy Florida provides Southeastern with the 
meter readings for preference customers' delivery points that have an 
allocation of capacity from Southeastern. Subsequently, Duke Energy 
Florida provides Southeastern with reports of purchased power and 
support capacity requirements around the 10th of the succeeding month. 
Southeastern computes its purchased power obligation for each delivery 
point monthly.
    Southeastern computes any revenue from sales to Duke Energy Florida

    Power sold to the Company by the Government will be delivered at 
the connection of the Company's transmission system with the Project 
bus.

Character of Service:

    Electric power delivered to the Company will be three-phase 
alternating current at a nominal frequency of 60 cycles per second.

Monthly Rate:

    The monthly rate for energy sold under this schedule shall be equal 
to 100 percent of the calculated saving in the cost of fuel per kWh to 
the Company determined as follows:
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TN29AU16.019

[Computed to the nearest $0.00001 (1/100mill) per kWh]

Where:

Fm = Company fuel cost in the current period as defined in Federal 
Power Commission Order 517 issued November 13, 1974, Docket No. R-
479.

Sm = Company sales in the current period reflecting only losses 
associated with wholesale sales for resale. Sale shall be equated to 
the sum of (a) generation, (b) purchases, (c) interchange-in, less 
(d) inter-system sales, less estimated wholesale losses (based on 
average transmission loss percentage for preceding calendar year).

Determination of Energy Sold:

    Energy will be furnished by the Company to supply any excess of 
Project use over Project generation. Energy so supplied by the Company 
will be deducted from the actual deliveries to the Company's system to 
determine the net deliveries for energy accounting and billing 
purposes. Energy for Project use shall consist of energy used for 
station service, lock operation, Project yard, village lighting, and 
similar uses.
    The on-peak hours shall be the hours between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 
p.m., Monday through Sunday, inclusive. Off-peak hours shall be all 
other hours.
    All energy made available to the Company shall, to the extent 
required, be classified as energy transmitted to the Government's 
preference customers served from the Company's system. All energy made 
available to the Company from the Project shall be separated on the 
basis of the metered deliveries to it at the Project during on-peak and 
off-peak hours, respectively. Deliveries to preference customers of the 
Government shall be divided on the basis (with allowance for losses) of 
77 percent being considered as on-peak energy and 23 percent being off-
peak energy. Such percentages may by mutual consent be changed from 
time to time as further studies show to be appropriate. In the event 
that in classifying energy there is more than enough on-peak energy 
available to supply on-peak requirements of the Government's preference 
customers but less than enough off-peak energy available to supply such 
customers off-peak requirements, such excess on-peak energy may be 
applied to the extent necessary to meet off-peak requirements of such 
customers in lieu of purchasing deficiency energy to meet such off-peak 
requirements.

Billing Month:

    The billing month under this schedule shall end at 12:00 midnight 
on the last day of each calendar month.

Power Factor:

    The purchaser and seller under this rate schedule agree that they 
will both so operate their respective systems that neither party will 
impose an undue reactive burden on the other.
