SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The existing formula rate provides sufficient revenue to recover annual expenses, interest, and capital requirements, within the cost recovery criteria set forth in DOE Order RA 6120.2; therefore, WAPA proposes to extend the current formula rate schedule for five years. By Delegation Order No. 00–037.00A, effective October 25, 2013, the Secretary of Energy delegated: (1) The authority to develop power and transmission rates to WAPA’s Administrator; (2) the authority to confirm, approve, and place such rates into effect on an interim basis to the Deputy Secretary of Energy; and (3) the authority to confirm, approve, and place into effect on a final basis, to remand or to disapprove such rates to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). FERC confirmed and approved the Washoe Project non-firm power formula rate, Rate Schedule SNF–7, on April 16, 2009,1 and the subsequent extension on September 5, 2013.2 In accordance with 10 CFR part 903.23(a), WAPA proposes to extend the existing formula rate for the period October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2022.

By way of background, Congress declared all Washoe Project costs nonreimbursable except the Stampede Powerplant.3 The average Stampede generation, approximately 10 gigawatt hours annually, is used principally to provide energy for two Federal fish hatcheries. Since the Washoe Project has no Federally-owned transmission lines, WAPA contracted with Truckee Donner Public Utility District and the City of Fallon (TDPUD/Fallon) to accept Stampede generation and serve project use loads. Energy in excess of project use loads is integrated with the Central Valley Project (CVP) and marketed under the 2004 Power Marketing Plan. Pursuant to Rate Schedule SNF–7, each year, any remaining reimbursable expenses, in excess of the revenue collected under the TDPUD/Fallon contract, are transferred to the CVP and incorporated into the CVP power revenue requirement. In accordance with 10 CFR part 903.23(a)(2), WAPA determined it is not necessary to hold a public information or public comment forum, but is providing a 30-day comment period. Comments must be received by the end of the comment period. WAPA will post comments received to its Web site, https://www.wapa.gov/regions/SN/ rates/Pages/rates.aspx.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The existing formula rate provides 
sufficient revenue to recover annual expenses, interest, and capital

Secretary of Energy delegated: (1) The authority to develop power and 
transmission rates to WAPA's Administrator; (2) the authority to 
confirm, approve, and place such rates into effect on an interim basis 
to the Deputy Secretary of Energy; and (3) the authority to confirm, 
approve, and place into effect on a final basis, to remand or to 
disapprove such rates to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 
(FERC).
    FERC confirmed and approved the Washoe Project non-firm power 
formula rate, Rate Schedule SNF-7, on April 16, 2009,\1\ and the 
subsequent extension on September 5, 2013.\2\ In accordance with 10 CFR 
part 903.23(a), WAPA proposes to extend the existing formula rate for 
the period October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2022.
