In this order, we approve on an interim basis Bonneville Power Administration’s (Bonneville) proposed 2018–2019 transmission rates for transmission service on the Southern Intertie (IS Rates),1 pending our further review.2 We also provide an additional period of time for parties to file comments. I. Background 2. On July 31, 2017,3 Bonneville filed a request for interim and final approval of its IS Rates (IS–18) in accordance with section 7 of the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act (Northwest Power Act) 4 and Part 300 of the Commission’s regulations.5 Bonneville states that, although its rate design is not subject to Commission review, it provides a summary of the hourly rate design change on the Southern Intertie for informational purposes. Bonneville explains that the change is significant, increasing the hourly rates approximately 170 percent, but asserts that the adopted revisions are necessary to address the impact of increased renewable generation in California in combination with seams issues between the transmission system connecting the Pacific Northwest and California.6 3. Bonneville projects that the filed rates will produce average annual transmission revenues of $1.044 billion 1 The Southern Intertie is a system of transmission lines and substations that transmit power between the Pacific Northwest and California, and is primarily used to export power from the Pacific Northwest and Canada to California. Bonneville Administrator’s Final Record of Decision 5.2.2. 2 Today, we also approve on an interim basis Bonneville’s other transmission rates filed in Docket No. EF17–3–000. See Bonneville Power Admin., 160 FERC ¶61,112 (2017). 3 Bonneville submitted errata filings on August 7, 2017, and August 10, 2017 to correct various attachments to the July 31, 2017 Transmittal Letter and to add inadvertently omitted documents to the record. 4 16 U.S.C. 839e (2012). 5 18 CFR pt. 300 (2017). 6 Bonneville July 31, 2017 Transmittal Letter at 2.

Notice of Filing 4. Notice of Bonneville’s July 31, 2017 filing was published in the Federal Register, 82 FR 37,445 (2017),9 with protests and interventions due on or before August 30, 2017. Timely motions to intervene were filed by Pacific Northwest Generating Cooperative, Powerex Corporation, Sierra Club and Montana Environmental Information Center, Avista Corporation, Northwest Requirements Utilities, Industrial Customers of Northwest Utilities, NorthWestern Corporation, Western Public Agencies Group, M–S–R Public Power Agency, Snohomish County Public Utility District No. 1, Public Power Council, Puget Sound Energy Inc., Idaho Power Company, and Avangrid Renewables LLC. Renewable Northwest filed a timely motion to intervene and comments. Sacramento Municipal Utility District, Transmission Agency of Northern California, and Turlock Irrigation District (collectively, Northern California Utilities) filed a timely motion to intervene, protest, objection to the motion for interim rate approval, request for an evidentiary hearing, and alternative request for stay of implementation of hourly transmission rates. On September 15, 2017, Bonneville filed a request for leave to answer and an answer to Northern California Utilities’ protest, and on September 19, 2017, Northern California Utilities filed an answer to Bonneville’s answer. On September 22, 2017, Bonneville filed an answer to Northern California Utilities’ September 19 answer. 5.
