Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program-Eastern Division-Notice of Proposed Transmission and Ancillary Services Rates-Rate Order No. WAPA-122
The Western Area Power Administration (Western) is proposing a minor transmission and ancillary services rate adjustment for the Pick- Sloan Missouri Basin ProgramEastern Division (P-SMBPED). The P- SMBPED transmission and ancillary service rate schedules will expire on September 30, 2005. The proposed rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repayment of required investment within the allowable periods. Western will prepare a brochure providing detailed information on the rates to all interested parties. Western intends to conduct the public participation according to the minor rate adjustment process as defined in the Department of Energy's (DOE) Procedures for Public Participation in Power and Transmission Rate Adjustments and Extensions. Western expects the proposed rates to go into effect October 1, 2005, and remain in effect through September 30, 2010. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rates.
