Western extends comment period for 2021 Power Marketing Initiative

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.

Entities interested in commenting on the proposed 2021 PMI must submit written comments to:

Robert J. Harris, Regional Manager
Upper Great Plains Region
Western Area Power Administration
2900 4th Avenue North
Billings, MT 59101–1266

Western must receive written comments by 4 p.m., MDT, on Sept. 6. Comments may also be faxed to 406-255–2900 or e-mailed to UGP2021@wapa.gov.

Western will prepare and publish the final 2021 PMI in the Federal Register after all public comments on the proposed 2021 PMI are considered.
