Current Power Rates      (Updated October 1, 2013)

2014 BPA Power Rates

Bonneville Power Administration's wholesale power and transmission rates for the FY 2014-2015 rate period were established during the BPA-14 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 24, 2013.

The complete rate proceeding record was then sent to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for their review and approval of the proposed rates. The Commission granted interim approval to the 2014 Power Rates Schedules and General Rate Schedule Provisions and the Transmission, Ancillary and Control Area Service Rate Schedules on September 27, 2013. Subject to final approval from the Commission, these rates will be in effect from October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2015 (FY 2014-2015).

If necessary, BPA adjusts its rates in accordance with the Dividend Distribution Clause (DDC), the Cost Recovery Adjustment Clause (CRAC), and the NFB1 Mechanisms (see GRSPs, sections II.C, II.D, and II.K). There are no adjustments or surcharges at this time. Neither the DDC nor the CRAC triggered for FY 2014. BPA is not expecting adjustments to the power rates for FY 2014.
