Pacific Northwest-Pacific Southwest Intertie Project-Rate Order No. WAPA-130
The Western Area Power Administration (Western) is proposing adjustments to the Pacific Northwest-Pacific Southwest Intertie Project (Intertie) rates for firm transmission service on the 230/345-kilovolt (kV) transmission system, firm transmission service on the 500-kV transmission system, and nonfirm transmission service on the 230/345/ 500-kV transmission system. The existing rates, under Rate Schedules INT-FT2, INT-FT3, and INT-NFT2, expire December 31, 2006. The proposed rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repay required investment within the allowable period. Western will prepare a brochure that provides detailed information on the rates to all interested parties. Western expects the proposed rates to go into effect on January 1, 2007, and remain in effect through December 31, 2011. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rates.
