Post-2014 Resource Allocations

On December 17, 2010, Western Area Power Administration's Rocky Mountain Region published its Post-2014 Resource Pool-Loveland Area Projects (LAP), Allocation Procedures and Call for Applications (75 FR 78988). Through the Post-2014 Resource Pool (Resource Pool), Western will allocate up to 1 percent of the LAP long-term firm hydroelectric resource available as of October 1, 2014, that is estimated to be approximately 6.9 megawatts for the summer season and 6.1 megawatts for the winter season. The Resource Pool will be created by reducing existing customers' allocations by up to 1 percent. A public information forum was held on February 2, 2011, prior to the application deadline, which was March 4, 2011.

Of the seven applications received, Western determined that six of the applicants met the Resource Pool General Eligibility Criteria. Western published the Resource Pool proposed power allocation and initiated a public comment period in the Federal Register (76 FR 45551, July 29, 2011). A public comment forum on the proposed power allocation was held August 25, 2011, and public comments were due to Western by September 12, 2011. There were no comments received during the public comment period.

Western published the Resource Pool final power allocation in the Federal Register (76 FR 64085, October 17, 2011). The Resource Pool will be effective October 1, 2014. Western will offer firm electric service contracts to the six qualified applicants, which are responsible for obtaining transmission service for their allocations. The qualified applicants are: the City of Jetmore, Kansas; the City of Pomona, Kansas; the City of Waterville, Kansas; Doniphan Electric Cooperative Association, Inc.; Kaw Valley Electric Cooperative, Inc.; and Nemaha-Marshall Electric Cooperative Association, Inc.
