A repayment study prepared in February of 2020 showed existing rates are adequate to recover all costs required by present repayment criteria. However, approval of the existing rate schedules expires September 30, 2020. The existing rate schedules include an annual true-up mechanism for the capacity and energy rates based on the variance of the actual net revenue available for repayment from the planned net revenue available for repayment. The adjustment is for every $100,000 under-recovery of the planned net revenue available for repayment, the base capacity charge is increased by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, up to a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per month, and the base energy charge is increased by 0.10 mills per kilowatthour, up to a maximum of 3.0 mills per kilowatt-hour. For every $100,000 overrecovery of the planned net revenue available for repayment, the base capacity charge is reduced by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, up to a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per month, and the base energy charge is reduced by 0.10 mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 mills per kilowatthour. The initial base capacity charge for the current rate schedules was $4.40 per kilowatt per month. The initial base energy charge was 17.80 mills per kilowatt-hour. As of April 1, 2020, the base capacity charge has been adjusted to $3.65 per kilowatt per month and the base energy charge has been adjusted to 14.80 mills per kilowatt-hour for net revenue available for repayment. The existing rates are adequate to meet repayment criteria. The annual true-ups incorporated in the rate schedules have proven to be effective in matching revenue available for repayment to planned amounts. Southeastern is proposing to maintain the initial base rate of $4.40 per kilowatt per month for capacity and the initial base energy charge of 17.80 mills per kilowatt-hour and the annual true-up mechanism. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Unit Rates The initial base rates for capacity and energy will be as follows: E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 61 / Monday, March 30, 2020 / Notices Capacity: $4.40 per kW per month Energy: 17.80 mills per kWh The rates are based on a repayment study estimating the Kerr-Philpott System will produce the following net revenue available for repayment (rounded to nearest $10,000): Fiscal year 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 2029 .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... ..........

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 
(FERC), by order issued February 24, 2016, 154 FERC ] 62,129, confirmed 
and approved Rate Schedules VA-1-C, VA-2-C, VA-3-C, VA-4-C, DEP-1-C,

2020. A repayment study prepared in February of 2020 showed existing 
rates are adequate to recover all costs required by present repayment 
criteria. However, approval of the existing rate schedules expires 
September 30, 2020.
    The existing rate schedules include an annual true-up mechanism for 
the capacity and energy rates based on the variance of the actual net 
revenue available for repayment from the planned net revenue available 
for repayment. The adjustment is for every $100,000 under-recovery of 
the planned net revenue available for repayment, the base capacity 
charge is increased by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, up to a maximum of 
$0.75 per kilowatt per month, and the base energy charge is increased 
by 0.10 mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 mills per 
kilowatt-hour. For every $100,000 over-recovery of the planned net 
revenue available for repayment, the base capacity charge is reduced by 
$0.02 per kilowatt per month, up to a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per 
month, and the base energy charge is reduced by 0.10 mills per 
kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 mills per kilowatt-hour.
    The initial base capacity charge for the current rate schedules was 
$4.40 per kilowatt per month. The initial base energy charge was 17.80 
mills per kilowatt-hour. As of April 1, 2020, the base capacity charge 
has been adjusted to $3.65 per kilowatt per month and the base energy

schedules have proven to be effective in matching revenue available for 
repayment to planned amounts. Southeastern is proposing to maintain the 
initial base rate of $4.40 per kilowatt per month for capacity and the 
initial base energy charge of 17.80 mills per kilowatt-hour and the 
annual true-up mechanism.

Proposed Unit Rates

    The initial base rates for capacity and energy will be as follows:

    The proposed rates continue a true-up of the capacity and energy 
rates based on the cumulative net revenue available for repayment from 
the table above. For every $100,000 under-recovery of the planned 
cumulative net revenue available for repayment, Southeastern will 
increase the base capacity charge by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, up 
to a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per month, and increase the base 
energy charge by 0.10 mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 
mills per kilowatt-hour. For every $100,000 over-recovery of the 
planned cumulative net revenue available for repayment, Southeastern 
will reduce the base capacity charge by $0.02 per kilowatt per month, 
up to a maximum of $0.75 per kilowatt per month, and reduce the base 
energy charge by 0.10 mills per kilowatt-hour, up to a maximum of 3.0 
mills per kilowatt-hour, to be implemented April 1 of the next fiscal 
year.
    Southeastern is proposing the following rate schedules to be 
effective for the period from October 1, 2020, through September 30, 
2025. The capacity charge and energy charge will be the same for all 
rate schedules. These rate schedules are necessary to accommodate the
