Final Firm Power Products and
Services (FPS-96R) Rate Adjustment

In August 1999, BPA proposed to correct errors in the Firm Power Products and Services rate schedule (FPS-96), and to establish posted rates that apply to the capacity with energy product. Certain BPA contracts executed prior to October 1, 1996, provide that BPA supply capacity without energy at the demand charge in the Contract Rate of the then applicable surplus firm power rate schedule. BPA erred in the FPS-96 rate schedule when it failed to expressly state in that schedule that the capacity without energy product would be priced at a negotiated rate. The demand charge in the Contract Rate section of FPS-96 was priced to be sold only in conjunction with the purchase of the separate energy product in that section. This action is intended to correct those errors.
