Integrated System Power Rates: Correction
Southwestern Power Administration published a document in the Federal Register (76 FR 48159) on August 8, 2011, announcing the public review and comment period on proposed rates. Inadvertently, the date listed for the combined Public Information and Comment Forum (Forum) was erroneously listed in the DATES section as of August 16, 2011. The correct date and time for the Forum, if requested, will be August 30, 2011, at 9 a.m.
Integrated System Power Rates
The Administrator, Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern), has prepared Current and Revised 2011 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 increased costs associated with compliance requirements of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation and to cover increased investments and replacements in hydroelectric generating facilities. The Administrator has developed proposed Integrated System rates, which are supported by a rate design study, to recover the required revenues. The June 2011 Revised Study indicates that the proposed rates would increase annual system revenues approximately 5.4 percent from $177,191,800 to $186,761,225 effective November 1, 2011 through September 30, 2015.
