DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES DEPUTY SECRETARY In the Matter of: Southeastern Power Administration Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System Power Rates Rate Order No. SEPA–62 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. 00–037.00B, effective November 19, 2016, 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 order is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to said delegation. Background Power from the Georgia-AlabamaSouth Carolina Projects is presently sold under Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO–1–E, SOCO–2–E, SOCO–3–E, SOCO–4–E, ALA–1–N, MISS–1–N, Duke–1–E, Duke–2–E, Duke–3–E, Duke– VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:54 Aug 30, 2017 Jkt 241001 4–E, Santee–1–E, Santee–2–E, Santee– 3–E, Santee–4–E, SCE&G–1–E, SCE&G– 2–E, SCE&G–3–E, SCE&G–4–E, Pump– 1–A, Pump–2, Replacement–1, and Regulation–1. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC in docket number EF12–4–000 on April 2, 2013, for a period ending September 30, 2017 (143 FERC ¶ 62,002). Public Notice and Comment Notice of a proposed rate adjustment was published in the Federal Register April 6, 2017 (82 FR 16828). The notice advised interested parties of a proposed reduction in the capacity rates of about fifteen percent (15%). The proposed reduction in the revenue requirement was about nine percent (9%). The energy rate was to be extended. A public information and comment forum was held May 9, 2017, in Savannah, Georgia. Written comments were accepted through July 5, 2017. Comments were received from two parties at the forum. Written comments were received from two interested parties. Comments received from interested parties are summarized below. Southeastern’s response follows each comment. Comment 1: If the previous historical rainfall patterns return during the term of the proposed rates, SEPA will likely over-recover. We encourage SEPA to carefully monitor the results each year to ensure [the conservative average energy estimate] does not lead to sustained over-recovery. Response 1: Southeastern uses the best available estimates to prepare a rate study used to support a rate adjustment. Southeastern updates the repayment studies for each of its four systems annually to monitor repayment. By law, Southeastern is required to recover the cost of each system. The term of the rate schedules can be no more than five years. Should the annual update of the repayment study reveal cost recovery is unduly accelerated, Southeastern may file a rate adjustment before the term of these rate schedules expire. Comment 2: The SeFPC notes that the implementation of newly adopted Water Control Manuals (‘‘WCM’’) for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (‘‘ACF’’) and Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa (‘‘ACT’’) river basins may change operations of the projects that provide the power marketed to customers of the GA-AL-SC system of projects. Because of potential changes in the operation of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (‘‘Corps’’) projects, we encourage SEPA to consider whether the anticipated changes associated with the WCMs will have an impact on the underlying revenue requirement. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Response 2: Southeastern will monitor the potential changes in the operations of the projects to ensure the changes do not impact cost recovery without appropriate adjustments to protect power customers. Comment 3: The SeFPC encourages SEPA to continue conversations with Corps representatives to review cost allocations for the multi-purpose projects which support the generation of power. Response 3: Southeastern continues to discuss with Corps representatives appropriate review of cost allocations for Southeastern’s projects. Comment 4: The SeFPC asks SEPA to re-examine the cost associated with the installation of a secant wall at the Walter F. George project. SEPA’s jurisdiction and authority to set rates for hydropower customers should be exercised as appropriate to ensure that the rates are as low as possible consistent with sound business principles. Response 4: Southeastern is continuing discussions with the Corps regarding whether repairs to the Walter F. George secant wall qualify as modifications due to changes in state-ofthe-art design or construction criteria deemed necessary for safety purposes. If so, the costs associated with the secant wall would be limited as to recovery under the Dam Safety Act. 33 U.S.C. 467n. The General Accounting Office (GAO) has recommended that the Corps clarify policy guidance on the usage of the state-of-the-art provision. (See https://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-16106.) Southeastern is awaiting the Corps’ response to the GAO report before taking further action. Discussion System Repayment An examination of Southeastern’s revised system power repayment study, prepared in July 2017, for the GeorgiaAlabama-South Carolina System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are paid within the appropriate repayment period required by existing law and DOE Order 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. Environmental Impact Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 168 / Thursday, August 31, 2017 / Notices 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 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.

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

DEPUTY SECRETARY

In the Matter of:

Southeastern Power Administration
Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System Power Rates
Rate Order No. SEPA-62

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. 00-037.00B, effective 
November 19, 2016, 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 order is issued by 
the Deputy Secretary pursuant to said delegation.

Background

    Power from the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina Projects is presently 
sold under Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO-1-E, SOCO-2-E, SOCO-3-E, 
SOCO-4-E, ALA-1-N, MISS-1-N, Duke-1-E, Duke-2-E, Duke-3-E, Duke-4-E, 
Santee-1-E, Santee-2-E, Santee-3-E, Santee-4-E, SCE&G-1-E, SCE&G-2-E, 
SCE&G-3-E, SCE&G-4-E, Pump-1-A, Pump-2, Replacement-1, and Regulation-
1. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC in docket number 
EF12-4-000 on April 2, 2013, for a period ending September 30, 2017 
(143 FERC ] 62,002).

Public Notice and Comment

    Notice of a proposed rate adjustment was published in the Federal 
Register April 6, 2017 (82 FR 16828). The notice advised interested 
parties of a proposed reduction in the capacity rates of about fifteen 
percent (15%). The proposed reduction in the revenue requirement was 
about nine percent (9%). The energy rate was to be extended. A public 
information and comment forum was held May 9, 2017, in Savannah, 
Georgia. Written comments were accepted through July 5, 2017. Comments 
were received from two parties at the forum. Written comments were 
received from two interested parties.
    Comments received from interested parties are summarized below. 
Southeastern's response follows each comment.
    Comment 1: If the previous historical rainfall patterns return 
during the term of the proposed rates, SEPA will likely over-recover. 
We encourage SEPA to carefully monitor the results each year to ensure 
[the conservative average energy estimate] does not lead to sustained 
over-recovery.
    Response 1: Southeastern uses the best available estimates to 
prepare a rate study used to support a rate adjustment. Southeastern 
updates the repayment studies for each of its four systems annually to 
monitor repayment. By law, Southeastern is required to recover the cost 
of each system. The term of the rate schedules can be no more than five 
years. Should the annual update of the repayment study reveal cost 
recovery is unduly accelerated, Southeastern may file a rate adjustment 
before the term of these rate schedules expire.
    Comment 2: The SeFPC notes that the implementation of newly adopted 
Water Control Manuals (``WCM'') for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint (``ACF'') and Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa (``ACT'') river basins may 
change operations of the projects that provide the power marketed to 
customers of the GA-AL-SC system of projects. Because of potential 
changes in the operation of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers 
(``Corps'') projects, we encourage SEPA to consider whether the 
anticipated changes associated with the WCMs will have an impact on the 
underlying revenue requirement.
    Response 2: Southeastern will monitor the potential changes in the 
operations of the projects to ensure the changes do not impact cost 
recovery without appropriate adjustments to protect power customers.
    Comment 3: The SeFPC encourages SEPA to continue conversations with 
Corps representatives to review cost allocations for the multi-purpose 
projects which support the generation of power.
    Response 3: Southeastern continues to discuss with Corps 
representatives appropriate review of cost allocations for 
Southeastern's projects.
    Comment 4: The SeFPC asks SEPA to re-examine the cost associated 
with the installation of a secant wall at the Walter F. George project. 
SEPA's jurisdiction and authority to set rates for hydropower customers 
should be exercised as appropriate to ensure that the rates are as low 
as possible consistent with sound business principles.
    Response 4: Southeastern is continuing discussions with the Corps 
regarding whether repairs to the Walter F. George secant wall qualify 
as modifications due to changes in state-of-the-art design or 
construction criteria deemed necessary for safety purposes. If so, the 
costs associated with the secant wall would be limited as to recovery 
under the Dam Safety Act. 33 U.S.C. 467n. The General Accounting Office 
(GAO) has recommended that the Corps clarify policy guidance on the 
usage of the state-of-the-art provision. (See https://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-16-106.) Southeastern is awaiting the Corps' response to 
the GAO report before taking further action.

Discussion

System Repayment

    An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment 
study, prepared in July 2017, for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina 
System shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are 
paid within the appropriate repayment period required by existing law 
and DOE Order 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.

Environmental Impact

    Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the 
rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the

[[Page 41403]]

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 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.

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, 2017, attached Wholesale Power Rate 
Schedules SOCO-1-F, SOCO-2-F, SOCO-3-F, SOCO-4-F, ALA-1-O, Duke-1-F,
