Models Used for the 2003 SN CRAC (SN-03) Expedited Rate Case
ToolKit Model for SN CRAC Trigger Case
(Treasury Payment Probability Calculation)
(web page posted on February 12 , 2003)

Summary: The model described on this page is the one used by BPA to determine the Treasury Payment Probability (TPP) for the SN CRAC Trigger Case. On February 7, 2003, the Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) triggered the Safety Net Cost Recovery Adjustment Clause (SN CRAC) rate setting process. BPA is currently forecasting that it has greater than a 50 percent probability that it will miss its next payment to Treasury or other creditor.
