Salt Lake City Area Integrated Projects-Rate Order No. WAPA-117
The Western Area Power Administration (Western) is proposing adjustments to the Salt Lake City Area Integrated Projects (SLCA/IP) firm power rates. The SLCA/IP consists of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), Collbran, and Rio Grande projects, which were integrated for marketing and ratemaking purposes on October 1, 1987, and two participating projects of the CRSP that have power facilities, the Dolores and Seedskadee projects. The current rates, under Rate Schedule SLIP-F7 expire September 30, 2007, but are not sufficient to meet the SLCA/IP revenue requirements. The proposed rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including operation and maintenance, and replacements (OM&R), interest expenses, and the required repayment of investment within the allowable period. Western will prepare a brochure that provides detailed information on the rates to all interested parties. The proposed rates, under Rate Schedule SLIP-F8, are scheduled to go into effect on October 1, 2005. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rates.
