    05/18/2011: The Western Area Power Administration, Sierra Nevada Region (WASN) intends to place two recently constructed 230-kV circuits into commercial operation over the weekend of May 21-22, 2011. The new transmission line includes one circuit between WASN’s O’Banion Substation and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s (SMUD) Elverta Substation and another circuit between WASN’s O’Banion Substation and SMUD’s Natomas Substation. The new circuits support Western’s contractual and system reliability obligations by providing additional power-importing capabilities to the greater Sacramento area. ATC values reflecting the commissioning of the new lines will be posted for scheduling purposes in advance of when schedules will flow on the new lines. This will be done to allow for normal pre-scheduling in accordance with WECC scheduling time lines. If the new transmission lines are not commissioned as anticipated schedules using the new ATC values will be adjusted to reflect the delay in commissioning. Once the lines are commissioned all schedule adjustments will be done in the normal manner.

    March 5, 2009: Subject: Customer Update – Section 402 of the Recovery Act On March 4, a Request for Interest (RFI) seeking interest in potential projects that can be funded using the Recovery Act authority to borrow up to $3.25 billion from the U.S. Treasury was published in the Federal Register. These projects will provide Federal funding in partnerships to develop transmission infrastructure that delivers renewable energy to market across the West. The full RFI, along with submission requirements for the RFI, is available on Western’s Web site at http://www.wapa.gov. Questions regarding the RFI can be submitted by e-mail at txrfi@wapa.gov. Answers will be posted on Western’s Web site to make them available to all interested parties. Western should receive statements of interest by April 3, 2009. Also on March 4, through a second notice, also available at www.wapa.gov, Western initiated the public process to develop practices and policies that implement this new authority. Western is proposing to adopt a Transmission Infrastructure Program, with a number of key principles, to guide the selection of projects approved for funding. Projects would be in the public interest, not adversely impact system reliability, and offer reasonable expectations that proceeds from the project will be adequate to meet Western’s repayment obligations. For repayment purposes, each transmission line and related facility project would be treated as a distinct project to protect the rights of existing Reclamation projects and customers. Revenues from each project would be the only source of repayment of the associated loan for that project and expenses for ancillary services, and operation and maintenance. Western will host a public meeting to explain the proposed program and accept oral and written comments on March 23, 2009, at 1 p.m. at Western’s Corporate Services Office, 12155 West Alameda Parkway, Lakewood, CO 80228. Participants may also join the meeting via Webcast. Western will accept written comments any time during the consultation and comment period which closes April 3, 2009. Recovery Act Federal Register Notice document is posted in the General Information folder.
