Sam Rayburn Dam Power Rate
The Administrator, Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern), has prepared Current and Revised 2007 Power Repayment Studies that show the need for an increase in annual revenues to meet cost recovery criteria. Such increased revenues are required due to significant increases in expected U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' generation investment expenses at the project. The Administrator has developed a proposed Sam Rayburn Dam rate schedule, which is supported by a power repayment study, to recover the required revenues. Beginning October 1, 2007, the proposed rate would increase annual revenues 22.8 percent from $2,816,064 to $3,458,124.
