The current Sam Rayburn Dam Project rate was approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on March 30, 2009, Docket No. EF09-4021-000, 126 FERC ] 62,224. These rates became effective for the period January 1, 2009, through September 30, 2012. The rate was extended by the Deputy Secretary of Energy for the period October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013 (77 FR 67813, November. 14, 2012). 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 of $280,248 (7.1 percent) to meet cost recovery criteria. Such increased revenues are needed primarily to recover cost increases to investments and replacements in the hydroelectric generating facilities and small increases to annual operations and maintenance costs by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Administrator of Southwestern has developed a proposed Sam Rayburn Dam rate to recover the required revenues. The Revised 2013 Study indicates that the proposed rates would increase annual system revenues approximately 7.1 percent, from $3,949,872 to $4,230,120, effective October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2017.
