Current Power Rates
​Bonneville Power Administration's wholesale power and transmission rates for the FY 2022-2023 rate period (Oct 2021 – Sep 2023) were established during the BP-22 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 28, 2021.
The complete rate proceeding record was then sent to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for their review and approval of the rates. The Commission granted interim approval of the power and transmission rates on September 30, 2021. These rates went into effect on October 1, 2021:
During this two-year rate period, power rates may be adjusted in accordance with the Power Cost Recovery Adjustment Clause (Power CRAC), the Power Reserves Distribution Clause (Power RDC), and the Power Financial Reserves Policy (Power FRP) Surcharge (see Power GRSPs, sections II.O, II.P, and II.Q).  Any such adjustments can be viewed on the Rate Adjustments web page.
