These projects are located in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. The Southwestern marketing area includes these states, plus Kansas and Louisiana. PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U:\07SEN1.SGM 50105 Program Background On June 18, 1987, Southwestern implemented its Temporary Power Sales Program, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Program’’ (52 FR 23206). The notice implementing the Program is hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the 1987 FRN.’’ The Program allows existing Southwestern customers to make all or a portion of their allocated federal hydroelectric power and energy from Southwestern (allocation) available to Southwestern for temporary sale to others in the following priority: (1) Public body and cooperative electric utility systems that are present or potential customers (including joint action agencies and any other public body and/or cooperative electric utility organizations that may be able to distribute the benefits of federal hydroelectric power and energy to said public body and cooperative electric utility systems), and (2) electric utilities other than public body and/or cooperative electric utility systems to be selected if no public body or cooperative electric utility systems are available to purchase such federal hydroelectric power and energy. See 52 FR at 23206 at 23207. Entities participating in the Program are referred to as ‘‘loaners’’ and ‘‘borrowers.’’ In response to the 1987 FRN, Southwestern received nine borrower applications and two loaner applications within the period of notice of the 1987 FRN, which began June 18, 1987 and ended August 31, 1987. Of the applications received, Southwestern made one match between two loaners and one borrower for a total of 0.7 megawatts (MW) for a term to continue on a year-to-year basis until terminated by the loaner, the borrower, or Southwestern. (The match was ultimately dissolved on August 17, 2005.) On October 14, 1988, Southwestern sent a letter to its customers soliciting additional interest in the Program and indicating Southwestern’s intention to maintain electric utility data on a biennial basis, with the lists of loaners and borrowers to be renewed every two years. In response to the October 14, 1988 letter, Southwestern received two additional borrower applications and no additional loaner applications. Implementation of the Program continued with two internal memoranda to the file, the first dated August 9, 1989, and the second dated January 17, 1992. These memoranda summarized the results of two separate reviews. Both reviews acknowledged minimal interest in the Program but recommended continuing the Program pending the 07SEN1
