​WP-2000 Rate Case
​Procedural History of This Bate Proceeding
This Record of Decision (ROD) contained the decisions of the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), based on the record compiled in this rate proceeding, with respect to the adoption of power rates for the five-year rate period commencing October, 1, 2001, through September 30, 2006.  This “2002 Wholesale Power Rate Adjustment Proceeding” was the pricing implementation of BPA’s Power Subscription Strategy adopted December 21, 1998.  The Subscription Strategy, as well as other agency processes, provided the policy context for this rate case.  This context is described in ROD chapter 2. 

BPA established rates that allowed BPA to meet the net firm load requirement of its preference customers, offer a combination of power and financial benefits to regional IOU’s for the benefit of their residential and small farm customers, and serve a significant portion of the DSI load at competitive rates,  Burns and Elizalde, WP-02-E-BPA-07 at 7.  The proposed rates promoted the spread of the benefits of the FCRPS while avoiding increases in the PF rates. Id. As stated in the Subscription ROD, the lowest cost-based PF rate is available to preference customers that signed contracts in the Subscription window for firm power to meet their regional firm power loads. Id. The actual amount of power that BPA was obligated to sell to preference customers was determined by contract, Burns and Elizalde WP-02-E-37, at 4.  In making PF rate available to preference customers, BPA is under no obligation to restrict service to IOUs for service to their residential and small farm customers and DSIs in order to further lower the PF rate. Id.  Any legal challenges raised by the parties pertaining to any proposed rate are addressed in applicable sections in this ROD.  As a matter of policy, BPA’s 2002 power rates are in accord with applicable Law.
