In the Matter of: Southeastern Power Administration B Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina Rates; Rate Order No. SEPA-48; Order Confirming and Approving Power Rates on an Interim Basis

Pursuant to Sections 302(a) and 301(b) of the Department of Energy Organization Act, Public Law 95-91, the functions of the Secretary of the Interior and the Federal Power Commission under Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, 16 U.S.C. 825s, relating to the Southeastern Power Administration (Southeastern) were transferred to and vested in the Secretary of Energy. By Delegation Order No. 0204-108, effective May 30, 1986, 51 FR 19744 (May 30, 1986), the Secretary of Energy delegated to Southeastern's Administrator the authority to develop power and transmission rates, delegated to the Under Secretary of Energy the authority to confirm, approve, and place in effect such rates on an interim basis, and delegated to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) the authority to confirm, approve and place into effect on a final basis or to disapprove rates developed by the Administrator under the delegation. On December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy issued Delegation Order No. 00-037.00, granting the Deputy Secretary of Energy authority to confirm, approve, and place into effect Southeastern's rates on an interim basis. This rate order is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to said notice.

Background

Power from the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System is presently sold under Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO-1-B, SOCO-2-B, SOCO-3-B, SOCO-4-B, ALA-1-K, MISS-1-K, Duke-1-B, Duke-2-B, Duke-3-B, Duke-4-B, Santee-1-B, Santee-2-B, Santee-3-B, Santee-4-B, SCE&G-1-B, SCE&G-2-B, SCE&G-3-B, SCE&G-4-B, Regulation-1, Replacement-1, Pump-1-A, and Pump-2. These rate schedules were approved by the FERC on November 3, 2004, for a period ending September 30, 2007 (109 FERC ¶ 61,133).

Public Notice and Comment

Notice of proposed rate adjustment was published in the Federal Register April 4, 2007 (72 FR 16345). The notice advised interested parties of a proposed rate increase of about eight and one-half percent (8.5%). A public information and comment forum was scheduled for May 10, 2007. Subsequent to the public information and comment forum, the proposed rates were revised. With the revisions, the proposed rate adjustment is an increase of about seven percent (7%). Written comments were accepted on or before July 3, 2007. Written comments were received from one source, the Southeastern Federal Power Customers (SeFPC), pursuant to this notice.

The following comments were received during the comment period. Southeastern's response follows each comment.

Comment 1: Customers are concerned with a 28% increase in O&M expense from the previous study, which is largely responsible for the overall increase in the rates.

Response 1: Estimates of future Corps Operations & Maintenance (O&M) Expense were provided by the Corps of Engineers to the O&M Committee of the SeFPC in April of 2006. Southeastern believes that these are the best estimates available. Southeastern shares the customer's concerns with the rate of increase of Corps O&M expense and will, in conjunction with the O&M Committee of the SeFPC, monitor and review this expense.

Comment 2: The high level for 2006 may be attributable to large increases in spending at the Carters and Russell projects that will not be repeated in future years.

Response 2: Information provided by the Corps of Engineers suggests costs at the Carters and Russell projects may have been higher in Fiscal Year 2006 due to some nonrecurring work. Nevertheless, Southeastern believes these estimates are the best available for the purposes of this rate filing. Southeastern will, in conjunction with the O&M Committee of the SeFPC, monitor and review O&M Expense for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System Projects.

Comment 3: The SeFPC [asks] SEPA to review the proposed increase for O&M and recent {events} at the Carters and Russell project to determine if any of these O&M expenses should be capitalized. If costs have been included as O&M expenses which should more properly be capitalized, the SeFPC would request that SEPA make the appropriate reductions in O&M expenses and commensurate increases in the capital project expenditures.

Response 3: The Corps of Engineers prepares its financial statements in accordance with Corps Directives. Southeastern has reviewed the Corps' cost reporting and has not discovered any material items that the Corps expensed and Southeastern believes should be capitalized. Southeastern will work with the Corps to ensure appropriate reporting of all expenditures.

Discussion

System Repayment

An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment study, prepared in July, 2007, for the Georgia-Alabama-South Carolina System, shows that with the proposed rates, all system power costs are paid within the 50-year repayment period required by existing law and DOE Order RA 6120.2. The Administrator of Southeastern has certified that the rates are consistent with applicable law and that they are the lowest possible rates to customers Start Printed Page 53757consistent with sound business principles.

Environmental Impact

Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the rate adjustment under consideration and has concluded that, because the adjusted rates would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, the proposed action is not a major Federal action for which preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is required. (10 CFR Part 1021, Subpart D, App. B4.3)

Availability of Information

Information regarding these rates, including studies, and other supporting materials is available for public review in the offices of Southeastern Power Administration, 1166 Athens Tech Road, Elberton, Georgia 30635-6711.

Submission to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

The rates hereinafter confirmed and approved on an interim basis, together with supporting documents, will be submitted promptly to FERC for confirmation and approval on a final basis, ending no later than September 30, 2012.

Order

In view of the foregoing and pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Secretary of Energy, I hereby confirm and approve on an interim basis, effective October 1, 2007, attached Wholesale Power Rate Schedules SOCO-1-C, SOCO-2-C, SOCO-3-C, SOCO-4-C, ALA-1-L, MISS-1-L, Duke-1-C, Duke-2-C, Duke-3-C, Duke-4-C, Santee-1-C, Santee-2-C, Santee-3-C, Santee-4-C, SCE&G-1-C, SCE&G-2-C, SCE&G-3-C, SCE&G-4-C, Replacement-1, Pump-1-A, Pump-2 and Regulation-1.
