Pacific Northwest-Pacific Southwest Intertie Project-Rate Order No. WAPA-181
The Deputy Secretary of Energy extends, on an interim basis, the existing Pacific Northwest-Pacific Southwest Intertie Project (Intertie) transmission service rates through September 30, 2020. Existing Rate Schedules INT-FT5 and INT-NFT4 expired on April 30, 2018. The Administrator of the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) approved rates for short-term sales of firm and non-firm transmission service on April 26, 2018, to cover the period between May 1, 2018, and the date this rate extension goes into effect or October 31, 2018, whichever occurs first. The extended transmission service rates will be in effect on an interim basis until the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) confirms, approves, and places them into effect on a final basis, or until they are replaced by other rates.
