Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
The Assistant Secretary for Electricity confirms, approves, and places into effect on a final basis the Boulder Canyon Project (BCP) base charge and rates for fiscal year (FY) 2022 under Rate Schedule BCP-F10. The base charge increased 2.9 percent from $65.4 million in FY 2021 to $67.4 million in FY 2022. The change is primarily the result of an increase in the Bureau of Reclamation's (Reclamation) replacement costs, an increase in the Western Area Power Administration's (WAPA) operations and maintenance (O&M) expenses and replacement costs, and a decrease in prior year carryover funds from FY 2021.
