Start Preamble April 9, 2001.

Take notice that the following filings have been made with the Commission:

1. Southwestern Power Administration

Take notice that on April 4, 2001, the Secretary, U.S. Department of Energy, tendered for filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for confirmation and approval on a final basis, pursuant to the authority vested in the FERC by Delegation Order No. 0204-172, November 11, 1999, the following Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern) Integrated System rate schedules:

Rate Schedule P-98D, Wholesale Rates for Hydro Peaking Power

Rate Schedule NFTS-98D, Wholesale Non-Federal Transmission/Interconnection Service

The Integrated System rate schedules were confirmed and approved on an interim basis by the Deputy Secretary in Rate Order No. SWPA-44 for the period April 1, 2001, through September 30, 2001, and have been submitted to the FERC for confirmation and approval on a final basis for the same period.

Southwestern has clarified the Energy Imbalance Service provision to specify the hours and circumstances in which energy within the authorized bandwidth is to be returned to the providing party, and has revised the Power Factor Penalty to charge on an hourly basis to more accurately reflect the actual taking of reactive kilovolt amperes (VARS) from the system of Southwestern. This penalty serves as an incentive to utilities to provide their own voltage support. In addition, Southwestern is adding a new provision for an Interconnection Facilities Service Charge. This charge will be applicable to interconnection requests for which Southwestern does not otherwise receive benefits or compensation for the use of Federal facilities. At this time, Southwestern does not anticipate any substantive change in revenues as a result of these changes which would impact revenue requirements. Southwestern does not forecast for penalties and currently has no contractual arrangements to which the Interconnection Facilities Service Charge would be applied.
