Boulder Canyon Project
Document Number: 2021-18172
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-08-24
Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
The Assistant Secretary for Electricity confirms, approves, and places into effect on a final basis the Boulder Canyon Project (BCP) base charge and rates for fiscal year (FY) 2022 under Rate Schedule BCP-F10. The base charge increased 2.9 percent from $65.4 million in FY 2021 to $67.4 million in FY 2022. The change is primarily the result of an increase in the Bureau of Reclamation's (Reclamation) replacement costs, an increase in the Western Area Power Administration's (WAPA) operations and maintenance (O&M) expenses and replacement costs, and a decrease in prior year carryover funds from FY 2021.

Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Prerinse Spray Valves
Document Number: 2021-16995
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-08-18
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended (``EPCA''), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including commercial prerinse spray valves (``CPSVs''). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'' or ``the Department'') to periodically determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. In this notification of proposed determination (``NOPD''), DOE has initially determined that amended energy conservation standards for commercial prerinse spray valves are not needed. DOE requests comment on this proposed determination and the associated analyses and results.
