Boulder Canyon Project
Western Area Power Administration (Western), a power marketing administration within the Department of Energy (DOE), is proposing an adjustment to the Boulder Canyon Project (BCP) electric service base charge and rates. The current base charge and rates expire September 30, 2014, under Rate Schedule BCP-F8. The current base charge is not sufficient to cover all annual costs, including operation, maintenance, replacements, and interest expense, and to repay investment obligations within the required period. The proposed base charge will provide sufficient revenue to cover all annual costs and to repay investment obligations within the allowable period. A detailed rate package that identifies the reasons for the base charge and rates adjustment will be available in March 2014. The proposed base charge and rates are scheduled to become effective October 1, 2014, and will remain in effect through September 30, 2015. This Federal Register notice initiates the formal process for the proposed base charge and rates.
