Proposed 2025 Power Marketing Plan
The Department of Energy (DOE), Western Area Power Administration (Western), Sierra Nevada Region (SNR) has developed a Proposed 2025 Power Marketing Plan (Proposed Plan). The Proposed Plan provides for marketing power from the Central Valley Project (CVP) and the Washoe Project from January 1, 2025, through December 31, 2054. Western currently markets about 1,580 megawatts (MW) of power from the CVP and 3.65 MW from the Washoe Project under long-term contracts to approximately 80 preference customers in northern and central California and Nevada. On December 31, 2024, all of Western's long-term power sales contracts will expire. Western developed the Proposed Plan to define the products and services to be offered, and the Eligibility and Allocation Criteria that will lead to allocations of SNR's power starting on January 1, 2025, and going through December 31, 2054. This Federal Register notice initiates the formal public process for the Proposed Plan. As part of the process, Western requests public comment.
