  27. Projects and Funding Sources Basin Fund Main stem & participating projects replacements Appropriations Integrated projects Reclamation (generation assets) Collbran & Rio Grande transmission replacements Any new construction
  28. Integrated Projects - Appropriations CRSP investment is minimal but requires appropriations for replacements Reclamation is the primary owner of these projects CRSP replacement costs in the integrated projects from inception to FYE 2012 totals around $160K FY2013 CRSP will fund about $300K for a breaker replacement in Collbran project
  29. CRSP Issues Cash management for Basin Fund Increased purchase power due to poor water Cost Recovery Charge (CRC) Shortage Criteria Trigger (Glen Canyon < 8.23 maf) Significant replacements Waterflow Phase Shifters for $24M) Olmsted power plant With -0- appropriations, no funding available for integrated project transmission replacements
  30. Partnerships & Joint Ownership

    Adam Arellano, CRSP Counsel
  31. Partnerships & Joint Ownership Goal today is a dialog and obtaining feedback Western has engaged in joint or shared partnership in the past Western will continue to explore joint partnerships when mutually beneficial Western’s funding mechanisms are the lowest cost source Costs normally remain in the rate even if funded or financed by a third party
  32. Partnerships & Joint OwnershipConsiderations General -- Facility development subject to Reclamation Law and Federal "Property" Law.  Each proposal evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Joint Ownership -- Western may not jointly own (as tenants in common) property with another entity.  Western can participate in projects with others, but property must be solely owned by either Western or the other entity. Nature of Property -- Distinguish between real property and personal property.  Western's personal property generally not placed on real property of another entity. 
  33. Partnerships & Joint OwnershipConsiderations Facilities in Western Substations, Taps, and Switchyards:  Any equipment that becomes integral part of Western-owned facilities is typically owned by Western.  Necessary to protect the integrity of the Federal transmission system. Transformer Replacement:  Transformers may be replaced if it avoids construction of duplicate facilities and Western retains/gains capacity rights in the new transformer.
