Additional Base Resource Under the final Marketing Plan, there may be future opportunities for entities to receive a Base Resource allocation from WAPA, for instance: 1. If an allocation is withdrawn because an allottee is unable to execute a contract or secure transmission arrangements for the delivery of power by the prescribed dates. 2. A customer surrenders an allocation. 3. An allottee’s or existing customer’s Base Resource allocation is greater than its need. If additional Base Resource is available for reallocation, WAPA, at its discretion and sole determination, reserves the right to reallocate the additional Base Resource through bilateral negotiations. WAPA also reserves the right to offer any additional Base Resource to (1) eligible entities who submitted applications during the 2025 Call for Applications, (2) existing customers, (3) new preference entities, or (4) any entity on a short-term basis. Contracting Process 18:30 Feb 11, 2019 Authorities The Marketing Plan, published in the Federal Register (82 FR 38675) on August 15, 2017, was established under the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7101, et seq.); the Reclamation Act of June 17, 1902 (ch. 1093, 32 Stat. 388), as amended and supplemented by subsequent enactments, particularly section 9(c) of the Reclamation Project Act of 1939 (43 U.S.C. 485(c)); and other acts specifically applicable to the projects involved. Allocating power from the resource pool falls within the Marketing Plan and is covered by this authority. Regulatory Procedure Requirements Environmental Compliance SNR will offer existing customers 98 percent of their current Base Resource allocations. The 2025 Resource Pool consists of the remaining 2 percent of the power resources. For existing customers who received a resource pool allocation, the additional allocation will be included with their existing Base Resource allocation. WAPA solely determines the terms, conditions, rates, or charges of its power contracts and will work with allottees to develop customized products, if requested, to meet their needs when the final 2025 Resource Pool allocations have been published. Each allottee is responsible for obtaining transmission arrangements for delivery of power to its load. Upon request, WAPA may assist VerDate Sep<11>2014 an allottee in obtaining transmission arrangements for delivery of power. Allottees will be required to execute a contract within six months of the contract offer. Electric service contracts will be effective upon WAPA’s signature, and service will begin on January 1, 2025. Jkt 247001 WAPA completed a Categorical Exclusion to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.), Council on Environmental Quality NEPA implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–08), and Department of Energy NEPA implementing regulations (10 CFR part 1021). Determination Under Executive Order 12866 WAPA has an exemption from centralized regulatory review under Executive Order 12866; accordingly, no clearance of this Federal Register notice by the Office of Management and Budget is required.

The procedures for identifying the eligible units for each control period and for allocating allowances from the NUSAs and Indian country NUSAs to these units are set forth in the CSAPR trading program regulations at 40 CFR 97.411(b) and 97.412 (NOX Annual), 97.511(b) and 97.512 (NOX Ozone Season Group 1), 97.611(b) and 97.612 (SO2 Group 1), 97.711(b) and 97.712 (SO2 Group 2), and 97.811(b) and 97.812 (NOX Ozone Season Group 2). Each NUSA allowance allocation process involves up to two rounds of allocations to eligible units, termed ‘‘new’’ units, followed by the allocation to ‘‘existing’’ units of any allowances not allocated to new units. In a notice of data availability (NODA) published in the Federal Register on December 6, 2018 (83 FR 62860), EPA provided notice of the preliminary identification of units eligible to receive second-round NUSA allocations for the 2018 control periods and described the process for submitting any objections. EPA received no objections in response to the December 6, 2018 NODA. This NODA provides notice of EPA’s calculations of the amounts of the second-round 2018 NUSA allocations to the previously identified eligible new units and the allocations of the remaining allowances to existing units.

Unit Set-Asides for 2018 Control Periods

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of data availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing notice 
of the availability of data on emission allowance allocations to 
certain units under the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) trading 
programs. EPA has completed final calculations for the second round of 
allocations of allowances from the CSAPR new unit set-asides (NUSAs) 
for the 2018 control periods and has posted spreadsheets containing the 
calculations on EPA's website. EPA has also completed calculations for 
allocations of the remaining 2018 NUSA allowances to existing units and 
has posted spreadsheets containing those calculations on EPA's website 
as well.

DATES: February 12, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions concerning this action 
should be addressed to Kenon Smith at (202) 343-9164 or

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under each CSAPR trading program where

[[Page 3443]]

EPA is responsible for determining emission allowance allocations, a 
portion of each state's emissions budget for the program for each 
control period is reserved in a NUSA (and in an additional Indian 
country NUSA in the case of states with Indian country within their 
borders) for allocation to certain units that would not otherwise 
receive allowance allocations. The procedures for identifying the 
eligible units for each control period and for allocating allowances 
from the NUSAs and Indian country NUSAs to these units are set forth in 
the CSAPR trading program regulations at 40 CFR 97.411(b) and 97.412 
(NOX Annual), 97.511(b) and 97.512 (NOX Ozone 
Season Group 1), 97.611(b) and 97.612 (SO2 Group 1), 
97.711(b) and 97.712 (SO2 Group 2), and 97.811(b) and 97.812 
(NOX Ozone Season Group 2). Each NUSA allowance allocation 
process involves up to two rounds of allocations to eligible units, 
termed ``new'' units, followed by the allocation to ``existing'' units 
of any allowances not allocated to new units.
    In a notice of data availability (NODA) published in the Federal 
Register on December 6, 2018 (83 FR 62860), EPA provided notice of the 
preliminary identification of units eligible to receive second-round 
NUSA allocations for the 2018 control periods and described the process 
for submitting any objections. EPA received no objections in response 
to the December 6, 2018 NODA. This NODA provides notice of EPA's 
calculations of the amounts of the second-round 2018 NUSA allocations 
to the previously identified eligible new units and the allocations of 
the remaining allowances to existing units.
    The detailed unit-by-unit data and final allowance allocation 
calculations are set forth in Excel spreadsheets titled 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOx_Annual_2nd_Round_Final_Data_New_Units'', 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOx_OS_2nd_Round_Final_Data_New_Units'', 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_SO2_2nd_Round_Final_Data_New_Units'', 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOx_Annual_2nd_Round_Final_Data_Existing_Units'', 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOx_OS_2nd_Round_Final_Data_Existing_Units'', 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_SO2_2nd_Round_Final_Data_Existing_Units'', available 
on EPA's website at https://www.epa.gov/csapr/csapr-compliance-year-2018-nusa-nodas.
    EPA notes that an allocation or lack of allocation of allowances to 
a given unit does not constitute a determination that CSAPR does or 
does not apply to the unit. EPA also notes that under 40 CFR 97.411(c), 
97.511(c), 97.611(c), 97.711(c), and 97.811(c), allocations are subject 
to potential correction if a unit to which allowances have been 
allocated for a given control period is not actually an affected unit 
as of the start of that control period.
