In the Matter of:

Southeastern Power Administration Cumberland System Rates

Order Confirming and Approving Power Rates on an Interim Basis

Pursuant to Sections 302(a) 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. 00-037.00, effective December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy delegated to Southeastern's Administrator the authority to develop power and transmission rates for Southeastern customers and delegated to the Deputy Secretary of Energy the authority to extend and place in effect such rates on an interim basis. This rate is issued by the Deputy Secretary pursuant to that delegation order.

Background

Power from the Cumberland Projects is presently sold under Wholesale Power Rate Schedules CBR-1-H, CSI-1-H, CEK-1-H, CM-1-H, CC-1-I, CK-1-H, CTV-1-H, CTVI-1-A, and Replacement-3. These rate schedules were approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in docket number EF11-13-000 on December 22, 2011, for a period ending September 30, 2013 (137 FERC ¶ 62,249).

Public Notice and Comment

Notice of a proposed rate extension was published in the Federal Register on March 28, 2013 (78 FR 18976). The notice advised interested parties of a proposal to extend the existing rate schedules for a two-year period, from October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2015. Written comments were due on or before April 29, 2013. Written comments were received from seven sources.

Comments received from interested parties are summarized below. Southeastern's response follows each comment.

Comment 1: The customers support the proposed extension.

Response 1: Southeastern will recommend the extension to the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Energy.

Comment 2: Future rate increases may drive Southeastern's rates to the point where it would no longer be economical to purchase Southeastern power. Once the full cost of repairs of the Wolf Creek and Center Hill Projects are included, the customers estimate Southeastern power will become uneconomical during nearly eighty percent of the dispatchable hours. The potential price of the Southeastern resources has been projected to exceed the expected market prices the majority of the time.

Response 2: Southeastern is concerned the cost of power Southeastern is responsible for marketing may exceed market rates. Southeastern will work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and the customers to ensure costs are managed and charged appropriately in an effort to maintain competitive rates.

Comment 3: At present, the Corps has not completed the repair work at the Wolf Creek and Center Hill Projects. It is appropriate that Southeastern set a rate that does not include any of the repair costs at this time.

Response 3: The cost of the repair work at Wolf Creek and Center Hill has not been included in the proposed rate extension.

Comment 4: While the Corps has declined to consider the appropriate statutory language in the Dam Safety Act that would mitigate the cost that hydropower customers may be asked to pay, Southeastern retains the full authority to ensure that the eventual rates for power will be the lowest possible rates consistent with sound business principles.

Response 4: Southeastern agrees that it retains full authority to ensure that the rates for power will be the lowest possible rates consistent with sound business principles within the meaning of Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944. As noted above, Southeastern has not included the repair costs in the proposed rate extension.

Discussion

System Repayment

An examination of Southeastern's revised system power repayment study, prepared in January 2013, for the Cumberland System, shows that the existing rates are adequate to meet repayment criteria. The Administrator of Southeastern Power Administration (Administrator) has certified that the rates are consistent with applicable law and that they are the lowest possible rates to customers consistent with sound business principles.

Environmental Impact

Southeastern has reviewed the possible environmental impacts of the rate extension 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 Start Printed Page 42765Federal action for which preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is required.

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.

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 interiml basis, effective October 1, 2013, attached Wholesale Power Rate Schedules CBR-1-H, CSI-1-H, CEK-1-H, CM-1-H, CC-1-I, CK-1-H, CTV-1-H, CTVI-1-A, and Replacement-3. The Rate Schedules shall remain in effect through September 30, 2015, unless such period is extended or until the FERC confirms and approves substitute Rate Schedules on a final basis.

Wholesale Power Rate Schedule CBR-1-H

Availability:

This rate schedule shall be available to Big Rivers Electric Corporation and includes the City of Henderson, Kentucky (hereinafter called the Customer).

Applicability:

This rate schedule shall be applicable to electric capacity and energy available from the Dale Hollow, Center Hill, Wolf Creek, Cheatham, Old Hickory, Barkley, J. Percy Priest, and Cordell Hull Projects (all of such projects being hereinafter called collectively the “Cumberland Projects”) and sold in wholesale quantities.

Character of Service:

The electric capacity and energy supplied hereunder will be three-phase alternating current at a nominal frequency of 60 hertz. The power shall be delivered at nominal voltages of 13,800 volts and 161,000 volts to the transmission system of Big Rivers Electric Corporation.

Points of Delivery:

Capacity and energy delivered to the Customer will be delivered at points of interconnection of the Customer at the Barkley Project Switchyard, at a delivery point in the vicinity of the Paradise steam plant and at such other points of delivery as may hereafter be agreed upon by the Government and Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

Billing Month:

The billing month for power sold under this schedule shall end at 2400 hours CDT or CST, whichever is currently effective, on the last day of each calendar month.

Conditions of Service:

The customer shall at its own expense provide, install, and maintain on its side of each delivery point the equipment necessary to protect and control its own system. In so doing, the installation, adjustment, and setting of all such control and protective equipment at or near the point of delivery shall be coordinated with that which is installed by and at the expense of TVA on its side of the delivery point.

Southeastern is including three rate alternatives. All of the rate alternatives have a revenue requirement of $59,600,000.

Rate Scenario 1—Interim Operating Plan

The final marketing policy for the Cumberland System was published in the Federal Register August 5, 1993 (58 FR 41762). The marketing policy for the Cumberland System of Projects provides peaking capacity, along with 1500 hours of energy annually with each kilowatt of capacity, to customers outside the TVA transmission system. Due to restrictions on the operation of the Wolf Creek Project and the Center Hill Project imposed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) as a precaution to prevent failure of the dams, Southeastern is not able to provide peaking capacity to these customers. Southeastern implemented an Interim Operating Plan for the Cumberland System to provide these customers with energy that did not include capacity. The rates under Scenario 1 will remain in effect for the duration of the Interim Operating Plan.

Monthly Rate:

The monthly rate for capacity and energy sold under this rate schedule shall be:

Demand Charge:

None.

Energy Charge:

17.69 mills per kilowatt-hour.

Transmission:

The Customer will pay a ratable percent listed below of the credit the Administrator of Southeastern Power Administration (Administrator) provides to the TVA as consideration for delivering capacity and energy for the account of the Administrator to points of delivery of Other Customers or interconnection points of delivery with other electric systems for the benefit of Other Customers, as agreed by contract between the Administrator and TVA.

Big Rivers Electric Corporation, 32.660%

City of Henderson, Kentucky, 2.202%

Energy to be Furnished by the Government:

The Customer will receive a ratable share of the energy made available by the Nashville District of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Rate Scenario 2—Cost Recovered From Capacity and Energy

This rate alternative will be implemented if a portion of the Cumberland Capacity can be scheduled, though not all the capacity in the published marketing policy can be scheduled. The revenue requirement under this alternative is $59,600,000, the same as the revenue requirement in Scenarios 1 and 3. The Rate Scenario 2 will receive revenues from capacity that can be scheduled and the remainder from energy, at charges that will be determined at the time. Under Scenario 2, the cost of the TVA transmission credit will be passed to customers outside the TVA System. This rate alternative will be in effect when the Corps modifies operation of the Wolf Creek Project and the Center Hill Project to allow some of the capacity scheduled. When the lake level rises and capacity is available, the capacity will be allocated on an interim basis to the customers.

Rate Scenario 3—Original Cumberland Marketing Policy

The third rate alternative will go into effect once the Corps lifts all restrictions on the operation of the Wolf Creek Dam and Center Hill Dam and Southeastern returns to operations that support the published marketing policy.

Monthly Rate:

The monthly rate for capacity and energy sold under this rate schedule shall be:

Demand Charge:

$4.245 per kilowatt/month of total contract demand.

Energy Charge:

None.

Energy to be Furnished by the Government:

The Government shall make available each contract year to the customer from the Projects through the customer's interconnections with TVA and the customer will schedule and accept an allocation of 1500 kilowatt-hours of energy delivered at the TVA border for each kilowatt of contract demand. A contract year is defined as the 12 months beginning July 1 and ending at midnight June 30 of the following calendar year. The energy made available for a contract year shall be Start Printed Page 42766scheduled monthly such that the maximum amount scheduled in any month shall not exceed 240 hours per kilowatt of the customer's contract demand and the minimum amount scheduled in any month shall not be less than 60 hours per kilowatt of the customer's contract demand.
