ACTION: Notice of proposed Provo River Project firm power formula rate. AGENCY: Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) proposes a 5year Provo River Project (PRP) Firm Power Formula Rate through March 31, 2025, which is unchanged from the existing formula rate in Rate Schedule PR–1 that expires on March 31, 2020. This is considered a minor rate adjustment since the installed capacity for the project is only 5,000 kilowatts and therefore below the 20,000 kilowatt threshold that would make it a major rate adjustment. DATES: A consultation and comment period will begin July 17, 2019 and end August 16, 2019. WAPA will accept written comments at any time during the consultation and comment period. ADDRESSES: Written comments and requests to be informed of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) actions concerning the proposed formula rate submitted by WAPA to FERC for approval should be sent to: Steven Johnson, CRSP Manager, Colorado River Storage Project Management Center, Western Area Power Administration, 299 South Main Street, Suite 200, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, (970) 252–3000, email: CRSPMCrate-adj@wapa.gov. WAPA will post information about the proposed formula rate and the written comments received to its website at: https://www.wapa.gov/ regions/CRSP/rates/Pages/rates.aspx. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Thomas Hackett, Rates Manager, Colorado River Storage Project Management Center, Western Area Power Administration, (801) 524–5503, or email: CRSPMC-rate-adj@wapa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Deer Creek Dam, Reservoir, and Power Plant are components of the Deer Creek Division of the PRP, located on the Provo River in Utah. The marketing plan SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34175 for the PRP was published in the Federal Register on November 21, 1994.1 In accordance with the marketing plan, WAPA markets the output of the PRP to the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems, Utah Municipal Power Agency, and Heber Light and Power (Customers). WAPA provides electric service to the Customers under contracts that will expire September 30, 2024.2 WAPA intends to execute new contracts and a new marketing plan to be effective October 1, 2024; however, these will be done in a separate public rate process and are not expected to impact this rate action. The Customers receive all marketable power generation from the PRP and pay the annual revenue requirement in 12 monthly-installment payments based on the estimated operation, maintenance, interest, and replacement costs for the Deer Creek Power Plant. The payments do not depend upon the power and energy made available for sale each year. A reconciliation of estimates to actual expenses is accomplished at the end of the fiscal year, and any differences are included in the following fiscal year’s revenue requirement. On November 2, 2010, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) confirmed, approved, and placed into effect Rate Order No. WAPA–149 for a 5-year period through March 31, 2015. Subsequently, WAPA–165 extended the formula rate for another 5-year period through March 31, 2020.3 The existing formula rate provides sufficient revenue to recover annual expenses, interest, and capital replacements within the cost recovery criteria set forth in Department of Energy (DOE) Order RA 6120.2. Legal Authority The proposed action is a minor rate adjustment, as defined by 10 CFR 903.2(f). In accordance with 10 CFR 903.15(a) and 10 CFR 903.16(a), WAPA has determined it is not necessary to hold public information and public comment forums for this rate action. Nonetheless, WAPA is initiating a 30day consultation and comment period to give the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed formula rate. WAPA will review and consider all timely public comments at the conclusion of the consultation and comment period and make amendments 1 59 FR 60,007. Contract Nos. 94–SLC–0254 (Dec. 22, 1994), 94–SLC–0253 (Jan. 19, 1995), and 07–SLC– 0601 (Mar. 28, 2007). 3 FERC approved consecutive 5-year rate extensions of the same formula rate in Docket Nos. EF15–5–000 (133 FERC ¶ 62,112) and EF15–6–000 (151 FERC ¶ 62,223), extending the rate through March 31, 2020. 2 WAPA E:\FR\FM\17JYN1.SGM 17JYN1
