Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Report

Past years 

For fiscal year 2017, BPA had total operating expenses of $2.98 billion with total operating revenues of $3.57 billion. Adjusted net revenues, or ANR, was $5.4 million. Power Services modified net revenues, or PMNR, was negative $85 million, which is lower than rate-case expectations largely due to reduced revenues from lower preference and industrial loads, surplus sales and U.S. Treasury credits. Transmission Services’ net revenues of $90.5 million were better than anticipated and driven by lower-than-expected expenses.
