Key Data Impacts

true up update generation leads exclusion
“True-Up” UpdateGeneration Leads Exclusion

Transmission Formula Rate – 2012 ATRR

  • In 2010, a transfer of transmission plant that was solely for generation leads was completed. This transfer was made from Transmission Plant to Generation Plant.
  • In prior years, this transmission plant was excluded from the TFR calculations [AGR, Page 3, Line 3]. In 2009, the amount was $2,330,375.
  • Since these assets were removed from transmission plant in 2010, there is no need to exclude in the TFR.
  • This impacts the Transmission Plant Allocator (TP) in the TFR. The 2010 TP Allocator is now 100% (1.0000) in comparison the 2009 TP Allocator of 99.76% (0.9976).

June 15, 2011 “True-Up” Update (posted June 15, 2011)

During this update, a comparison of the

2010 Projected ATRR and 2010 Actual ATRR was calculated.

The difference was $4,482,742.

This was an under-collection before interest.

During the “Annual” update (posted on or before October 15, 2011), the interest will be applied to the “True-Up” amounts.

The True-Up Amounts with Interest will be applied to the 2012 ATRR.
