The United States Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), Colorado River Storage Project Management Center (CRSP MC), is proposing a new power formula rate for the Olmsted Hydroelectric Powerplant Replacement Project (Olmsted). There is no existing rate for Olmsted; therefore, the CRSP MC is proposing a new formula, under Rate Schedule Olmsted F-1, that will be used to determine the annual energy charge. WAPA will provide a brochure detailing information about the proposed formula rate prior to the public information forum and will post it to the Olmsted rate action Web site at https://www.wapa.gov/regions/CRSP/rates/Pages/rate-order- 177.aspx. If approved, the proposed formula rate under Rate Schedule Olmsted F-1 would become effective on April 1, 2018, and remain in effect through March 31, 2023, or until superseded. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed formula rate.
