Brazos Electric Power Cooperative, Inc.

Tex-La Electric Cooperative of Texas, Inc.
West Texas Utilities Company
    Tex-La currently receives wholesale electric service at 28 points 
of delivery (PODS) on TU Electric's system and 5 PODs on SESCO's 
system, all within the load control area of TU Electric. Tex-La seeks 
transmission services from TU Electric and SESCO which will enable Tex-
LA to move the operational control of these 33 PODs from the load 
control area of TU Electric to the load control area of West Texas 
Utilities Company (WTU) using remote control telemetry equipment.
    The proposed date for initiating the requested transmission service 
is June 29, 1994, or as soon thereafter as the operational control of 
all Tex-La PODs on TU Electric's and SESCO's systems has been 
transferred to WTU and service by WTU commences. The proposed date for 
terminating the requested transmission services is February 1, 2025, 
except that, as to any such POD which Tex-La transfers prior to such 
date to the Southwest Power Pool, transmission service shall cease at 
the time of such transfer.
    During 1992, the sum of the non-coincident peak demands at the 28 
Tex-La PODs on the TU Electric system was 92.5 MW, and a total of 
358,760 MWH of energy was delivered to Tex-La by TU Electric at such

requested by Tex-La is firm network transmission service, over the TU 
Electric and SESCO transmission systems at a level and quantity 
sufficient for Tex-La to meet its loads at the PODs with (1) 27.5 MW of 
power and energy sold by the Southwestern Power Administration from the 
Denison Dam hydroelectric facility, (2) when Denison Dam is 
unavailable, 27.5 MW of backup power from Brazos Electric Power 
Cooperative, Inc., (3) 6 MW of power sold by Central Power and Light 
Company, and (4) wholesale power purchased from WTU for the balance of 
Tex-La's requirements.

[Docket No. EL94-15-000]

Service Company (Northern Indiana), tendered for filing a petition 
requesting a Commission determination that it will not exercise its 
jurisdiction, granted by the Federal Power Act (FPA), over service 
provided by Northern Indiana to Greenfield Mills, Inc. (Greenfield 
Mills), the owner and operator of a hydroelectric facility in Lagrange 
County, Indiana. Northern Indiana purchases power generated by 
Greenfield Mills and, should Greenfield Mills need electricity for its 
operations, Northern Indiana provides such ``backfeed'' power from its 
system supply. Northern Indiana will purchase power generated by 
Greenfield Mills during the 18-hour period from 6 a.m. to midnight at a 
rate of 7 mills per kilowatt hour (Kwh); power generated during the 
remaining six hours of the day will be purchased by Northern Indiana at 
a rate of 3 mills per Kwh. Northern Indiana sells backfeed to 
Greenfield Mills by offsetting two Kwh of power purchased for every one 
Kwh of power sold.
    Northern Indiana seeks a declaratory order regarding Commission 
jurisdiction due to the de minimis nature of the Greenfield Mills 
transaction. Over the past 10 years, Northern Indiana's annual revenue 
from the contract has been about $865 per year and, during the past 
decade, Northern Indiana has sold only 615,200 Kwh of power to 
Greenfield Mills, representing only 38 ten-thousandths of one percent 
of its total sales for resale. Copies of Northern Indiana's petition 
for declaratory order are on file with the Commission and are available 
for public inspection.
