10. Montana Power Company

Take notice that on April 21, 2000, Montana Power Company (Montana Power) filed pursuant to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Order No. 888 and Section 205 of the Federal Power Act supplements to network transmission service agreements with Central Montana Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (Central Montana) and Big Horn County Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Big Horn) that will enable it to recover wholesale stranded costs from such customers. Montana Power states that when it acquired its generation resources, it reasonably expected to provide wholesale electric service to Central Montana and Big Horn for the indefinite future. Montana Power further states that as a result of the determination of those customers to obtain generation services from alternative suppliers, it is entitled to recover stranded costs from them in accordance with FERC Order No. 888.

Montana Power states that because it sold substantially all of its generation resources in December 1999, the revenues-lost methodology generally followed by the FERC in stranded cost proceedings is inapplicable to calculation of its stranded costs. Montana Power has therefore proposed an alternative methodology for calculation of stranded costs and has requested a waiver of the Commission's regulations to the extent necessary to use that method.

Montana Power has proposed to make each supplement effective on June 23, 2000.
