Loveland Area Projects-Rate Order No. WAPA-167
Document Number: 2014-18811
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-08
Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
The Western Area Power Administration (Western) Loveland Area Projects' (LAP) Rate Schedule L-F9 expires December 31, 2014. LAP consists of the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project (Fry-Ark) and the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program (P-SMBP)Western Division, which were integrated for marketing and rate-making purposes in 1989. Western is proposing modifications to the charge components in Rate Schedule L-F9 in order to true up the base and drought adder charges, which require a minor rate adjustment process. The revenue requirement and the total rate charges in the firm electric service rate schedule are not changing from Rate Schedule L-F9 and will continue to provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repay investments within the allowable periods. If approved, the proposed Rate Schedule L-F10 will become effective on January 1, 2015, and will remain in effect through December 31, 2019. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rate schedule.
Energy Conservation Standards for Refrigerated Beverage Vending Machines: Public Meeting and Availability of the Preliminary Technical Support Document

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-08
Agency: Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will hold a public meeting to discuss and receive comments on the preliminary analysis it has conducted for purposes of considering amended energy conservation standards for refrigerated beverage vending machines.
