Integrated System Power Rates
The Administrator, Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern), has prepared Current and Revised 2013 Power Repayment Studies which show the need for an increase in annual revenues to meet cost recovery criteria. Such increased revenues are needed primarily to cover the increased costs associated with increased operations and maintenance and increases to investments and replacements in the hydroelectric generating facilities. The Administrator of Southwestern has developed proposed Integrated System rates, which are supported by the rate design study, to recover the required revenues. The Revised 2013 Study indicates that the proposed rates would increase annual system revenues approximately 4.7 percent from $184,059,100 to $192,765,802 effective October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2017.
