Western’s Upper Great Plains Region published the proposed 2021 Power Marketing Initiative in the Federal Register notice on March 4, 2011. Western received a comment requesting additional time to submit comments on the proposed 2021 PMI and re-opened the written comment period for the proposed 2021 PMI until Sept. 6, 2011.
Western’s firm electric service contracts associated with the current marketing plan will expire Dec. 31, 2011. This proposed 2021 PMI provides the basis for marketing the long-term firm hydroelectric resources of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program—Eastern Division beyond 2020.
