Bonneville Power Administration's wholesale power and transmission rates for the FY 2016-2017 rate period were established during the BP-16 Rate Case
. The rate proceeding, conducted through a formal process described in Section 7(i) of the Northwest Power Act, concluded when the Administrator signed the Final Record of Decision
on July 23, 2015.
If necessary, BPA adjusts its power rates in accordance with the Cost Recovery Adjustment Clause (CRAC), the Dividend Distribution Clause (DDC), and the Emergency NFB Surcharge1 (see Power GRSPs, sections II.C, II.E, and II.N.3). Neither the CRAC nor the DDC triggered for FY 2016. The Emergency NFB Surcharge can trigger at any time during the rate period if specified conditions occur.
