Gulf States Transmission LLC; Notice of Application and Establishing Intervention Deadline, 20686-20688 [2021-08240]

Download as PDF 20686 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 75 / Wednesday, April 21, 2021 / Notices sections 211 and section 213 of the Federal Power Act as amended and added by the Energy Policy Act 1992. FERC–716 also includes the requirement to file a section 211 request if the negotiations between the transmission requestor and the transmitting utility are unsuccessful. For the initial process, the information is not filed with the Commission. However, the request and response may be analyzed as a part of a section 211 action. The Commission may order transmission services under the authority of FPA 211. The Commission’s regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), 18 CFR 2.20, provide standards by which the Commission determines if and when a valid good faith request for transmission has been made under section 211 of the FPA. By developing the standards, the Commission sought to encourage an open exchange of data with a reasonable degree of specificity and completeness between the party requesting transmission services and the transmitting utility. As a result, 18 CFR 2.20 identifies 12 components of a good faith estimate and 5 components of a reply to a good faith request. Type of Respondents: Transmission Requestors and Transmitting Utilities. Estimate of Annual Burden: 1 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: FERC–716 (GOOD FAITH REQUESTS FOR TRANSMISSION SERVICE AND GOOD FAITH RESPONSES BY TRANSMITTING UTILITIES UNDER SECTIONS 211(a) AND 213(a) OF THE FEDERAL POWER ACT (FPA)) Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden and cost per response 2 Total annual burden hours and total annual cost ($) Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) Information exchange between parties .......................

ACTION: Notice of proposed transmission, energy and generator imbalance, and losses formula rates for use under the Western Energy Imbalance Service (WEIS) Market. AGENCY: The Rocky Mountain Region (RMR) of the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) proposes to convert its existing rates for short-term sales for RMR to use under the WEIS Market to new long-term formula rates for use October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2024. The existing formula rates (approved under the WAPA Administrator’s short-term rate authority) expire on September 30, 2021. No changes are being proposed to the existing formula rates under the rates for short-term sales Rate Schedules L–NFJDT (joint dispatch transmission), L–AS4 (energy imbalance), L–AS9 (generator imbalance), and L–AS7 (balancing authority real power losses). DATES: A consultation and comment period will begin April 21, 2021 and end May 21, 2021. RMR will accept written comments at any time during the 30-day consultation and comment period. SUMMARY: Written comments and requests to be informed of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) actions concerning the proposed formula rates submitted by WAPA to FERC for approval should be sent to: Mr. Timothy A. Vigil, Acting Regional Manager, Rocky Mountain Region, Western Area Power Administration, 5555 East Crossroads Boulevard, Loveland, CO 80538–8986, or email: LAPtransadj@wapa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 9, 2017, FERC approved and confirmed LAP transmission and LAP, WACM, and Colorado River Storage Project ancillary services formula rates under Rate Schedules L–NT1 (network), L–FPT1 ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (firm point-to-point), L–NFPT1 (nonfirm point-to-point), L–UU1 (unreserved use), L–AS1 (scheduling and dispatch), L–AS2 (reactive supply and voltage control (VAR) support), L–AS3 (regulation), L–AS4 (energy imbalance), L–AS5 (spinning reserves), L–AS6 (supplemental reserves), L–AS7 (transmission losses), and L–AS9 (generator imbalance) under Rate Order No. WAPA–174 for a 5-year period through September 30, 2021.1 On December 29, 2020, WAPA’s Administrator approved rates for shortterm sales for RMR to use under the WEIS Market, which superseded the previously approved Rate Schedules L– AS4 (energy imbalance), L–AS9 (generator imbalance), and L–AS7 (transmission losses) and which created a new Rate Schedule, L–NFJDT (joint dispatch transmission), for the 8-month period February 1, 2021, through September 30, 2021. The existing formula rates under the rates for short-term sales provide sufficient revenue to recover annual costs within the cost recovery criteria set forth in Department of Energy (DOE) Order RA 6120.2. RMR proposes that the long-term formula-based rates would take effect October 1, 2021. The proposed formula rates would remain in effect until September 30, 2024, or until WAPA changes the formula rates through another public rate process pursuant to 10 CFR part 903, whichever occurs first. For more information on the proposed rates, please see the customer brochure located on RMR’s website at: https://www.wapa.gov/ regions/RM/rates/Pages/2021-LongTerm-Rates---WEIS-Market.aspx. Under a separate rate extension process, Rate Order No. WAPA–196, RMR is concurrently proposing to extend the remaining 5-year formula rates under Rate Schedules L–NT1 (network), L–FPT1 (firm point-to-point), L–NFPT1 (non-firm point-to-point), L– UU1 (unreserved use), L–AS1 (scheduling and dispatch), L–AS2 (VAR support), L–AS3 (regulation), L–AS5 (spinning reserves), and L–AS6 (supplemental reserves) for this same 3year period, October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2024. This 3-year period would allow RMR time to refine the WEIS Market implementation and investigate the potential expansion of and participation in the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) in the Western Interconnection. 1 Order Confirming and Approving Rate Schedules on a Final Basis, FERC Docket Nos.

will be available from the Commission's Office of External Affairs, at
