1980, which has a distribution system from which it serves both

within and without said region.

CHAPTER 12F - PACIFIC NORTHWEST CONSUMER POWER PREFERENCE;

RECIPROCAL PRIORITY IN OTHER REGIONS

-HEAD-

Sec. 837b. Contract terms and conditions for use of electric energy

outside Pacific Northwest

-STATUTE-

(a) Surplus energy; discontinuance of deliveries to maintain

ability to meet requirements of Pacific Northwest customers;

purchaser's responsibility for hardships; deliveries by

non-Federal utility for use on contiguous distribution system

not deemed deliveries for use outside Pacific Northwest

Any contract for the sale or exchange of surplus energy for use

outside the Pacific Northwest, or as replacement, directly or

indirectly, within the Pacific Northwest for hydroelectric energy

delivered for use outside that region by a non-Federal utility,

shall provide that the Secretary, after giving the purchaser notice

not in excess of sixty days, will not deliver electric energy under

such contract whenever it can reasonably be foreseen that such

delivery would impair his ability to meet, either at or after the

time of such delivery, the energy requirements of any Pacific

Northwest customer. The purchaser shall obligate himself not to

take delivery of or use any such energy to supply any load under

such conditions that discontinuance of deliveries from the Pacific

Northwest in sixty days would cause undue hardship to the purchaser

or in his territory, and, further, the purchaser shall acknowledge

full responsibility if any such hardship occurs. Deliveries by a

non-Federal utility from its generating plants in the Pacific

Northwest for use on its own distribution system in an area outside

but contiguous to the Pacific Northwest (not including any

extension of its outside service area by merger or acquisition

after August 31, 1964) shall not be deemed deliveries by such

utility for use outside the Pacific Northwest.

(b) Conservable electric energy; provisional basis for delivery;

return of energy to meet requirements of Pacific Northwest

customers; time and extent of return of energy

Electric energy generated at Federal hydroelectric plants in the

Pacific Northwest which can be conserved, for which there is no

immediate demand in the Pacific Northwest at any established rate,

but for which the Secretary determines there may be a demand in

meeting the future requirements of the Pacific Northwest, may be

delivered for use outside that region only on a provisional basis

under contracts providing that if the Secretary determines at a

subsequent time that, by virtue of prior deliveries under such

contract, the Secretary is or will be unable to meet the energy

requirements of any Pacific Northwest customer, the purchaser will

return the full amount of energy delivered to him, or such portion

or portions thereof as may be required, at such time or times as

may be specified by the Secretary, except that the Secretary shall

not require return during the purchaser's daily peak periods. The

Secretary shall require the return of the energy provisionally

delivered hereunder, to such extent and at such times, as may be

necessary to meet demands at any established rate for use within

the Pacific Northwest.

(c) Surplus peaking capacity; termination clause; advance or return

of energy; time of return of energy; sale under subsection (a)

conditions

Any contract for the disposition of surplus peaking capacity

shall provide that (1) the Secretary may terminate the contract

upon notice not in excess of sixty months, and (2) the purchaser

shall advance or return the energy necessary to supply the peaking

capacity, except that the Secretary shall not require such advance

or return during the purchaser's daily peak periods. The Secretary

may contract for the sale of such energy to the purchaser, in lieu

of its return, under the conditions prescribed in subsection (a) of

this section.

(d) Determination of energy requirements of Pacific Northwest

non-Federal utility customer; exclusion of conservable energy;

sale of surplus energy to the utility

The Secretary, in making any determination of the energy

requirements of any Pacific Northwest customer which is a

non-Federal utility having hydroelectric generating facilities,

shall exclude any amounts of hydroelectric energy generated in the

Pacific Northwest and disposed of outside the Pacific Northwest by

the utility which, through reasonable measures, could have been

conserved or otherwise kept available for the utility's own needs

in the Pacific Northwest. The Secretary may sell the utility as a

replacement therefor only what would otherwise be surplus energy.

energy during the Pacific Northwest storage refill period, (2) any

hydroelectric energy during the Pacific Northwest storage refill

period which will be returned to the Pacific Northwest in equal

amounts during the same Pacific Northwest refill period or the

succeeding storage drawdown period, (3) any hydroelectric energy

which will be returned to the Pacific Northwest in equal amounts

during the same Pacific Northwest storage drawdown period, (4)

hydroelectric peaking capacity, or (5) surplus peaking capacity for

energy. All benefits from such exchanges, including resulting

increases of firm power, shall be shared equitably by the areas

involved, having regard to the secondary energy and other

contributions made by each.

area outside the Pacific Northwest, which is not required for the

transmission of Federal energy or the energy described in section

837h of this title, shall be made available as a carrier for

transmission of other electric energy between such areas. The

transmission of other electric energy shall be at equitable rates

determined by the Secretary, but such rates shall be subject to

equitable adjustment at appropriate intervals not less frequently

than once in every five years as agreed to by the parties. No

contract for the transmission of non-Federal energy on a firm basis

shall be affected by any increase, subsequent to the execution of

such contract, in the requirements for transmission of Federal

energy, the energy described in section 837h of this title, or

other electric energy.
