Pursuant to the Bureau of Indian Affairs regulations governing our electric power utilities, found at 25 CFR 175, notice is hereby given that the San Carlos Irrigation Project (SCIP) is implementing a purchased Power Cost Adjustment (PCA). In addition to our existing electric power rates published in the Federal Register (87 FR 77628, Dec. 19, 2022), we will apply a PCA of $0.0249 per kilowatt-hour consumed. Except for the Irrigation Project Pumps rate category, the PCA will apply to all customers starting on April 1, 2023.

SCIP holds long-term purchased power contracts with Western Area Power Authority for hydropower from Parker-Davis Project and Salt Lake City Area Integrated Project. Additionally, SCIP purchases much of its power through short-term or month-ahead contracts based on market rates. Recent weather-related events combined with the limited availability of summer energy resources has significantly increased power market rates. Because our purchased power costs are in part determined by market rates that are not under our control, we need to immediately implement the PCA to meet our financial and statutory requirements. We will continue to monitor the fluctuating power market and may adjust the PCA as needed.
