Start Preamble

Take notice that on May 23, 2014, pursuant to section 206 and 306 of the Federal Power Act (FPA), 16 USC 824e and 825e and Rule 206 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.206, the City of Hastings, Nebraska and the City of Grand Island, Nebraska (collectively, Complainants) filed a formal complaint against Southwest Power Pool, Inc. (Respondent or SPP) alleging that, the Respondent may have misinterpreted its Tariff and is in violation of the FPA by demanding that the Complainants purchase transmission service that is not required by the Tariff and demanding that Complainants pay unreserved use penalties that are not permitted under the Tariff. In the alternative, if the Commission finds that SPP's interpretation is correct, the Complainants requests that the Commission determine that the affected provisions of the Tariff are unjust and unreasonable, as more fully explained in the Complaint.

The Complainants certify that copies of the Complaint were served on the contacts for the Respondent as listed in the Commission's list of Corporate Officials.
