Wholesale Power Rate Development Study (WPRDS)

Rate Document Number: WP-02-FS-BPA-05
Publication Number: DOE/BP-3288
Number of Pages: 181
Contact Person: Bill Doubleday, BPA Power Business Line, (503) 230-7570, wjdoubleday@bpa.gov (updated December 13, 2000)

Summary: The Wholesale Power Rate Development Study (WPRDS) is the primary source for details of the development of power rates, reflecting the results of all the other studies. It documents the Rate Analysis Model and designs rates for BPA's wholesale power products and services. The WPRDS documents the development of Slice Costs, the development and forecast of Inter-business Line costs, the development of charges for demand, load variance, unauthorized increase charges, and implementation of Power Subscription Strategy.

WPRDS Documentation - Volume 1

Rate Document Number: WP-02-FS-BPA-05A
Publication Number: DOE/BP-3298
Number of Pages: 401
Contact Person: Jan Stoffels, BPA Power Business Line, (503) 230-3689, jastoffels@bpa.gov

Summary: The Documentation for the Wholesale Power Rate Development Study shows the details of the calculation of the proposed rates. It contains the source data, the calculation, and the results. Volume 1 of the Documentation includes Sections 1, 2,and 3 (see Volume 2 below for Section 4). Section 1 contains an overview of the information used and developed in the various models used in the rate development process. Section 2 contains the documentation of the Rate Analysis Model (RAM). The RAM is a group of computer applications that performs most of the computations that determine BPA's proposed rates. The output tables of RAM show the source data, calculations (in sequence), and the results (rate charges) of the rate development process. Section 3 provides documentation of revenue forecasts for the 5-year rate test period FY 2002 through FY 2006 at both current and proposed rates and for the period immediately preceding the rate test period.
