 rural electric cooperatives and
public power systems in the southwestern region joined together as
members of the Southwestern Power Resources Association (SPRA).
What began as the Committee on Power for the Southwest, SPRA
continues as a voluntary organization of consumer-owned electric
systems located in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma
and Texas. These systems are customers of the Southwestern Power
Administration, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which markets
hydroelectric power generated at 24 multi-purpose Corps of Engineers
water projects in this region.
SPRA has a record of significant accomplishments on behalf of its
membership. It supports appropriations for both the Corps of Engineers
and the Southwestern Power Administration for water development
studies, project construction, operation and maintenance
(O&M), and the federal power marketing activities. We boast the
first of its kind, tri-party Customer Trust Memorandum of Agreement
(also known as the Jonesboro MOA), with Southwestern Power Administration
and the US Army Corps of Engineers, allowing SPRA
members to directly fund Corps non-routine O&M work necessary to
ensure the reliability of hydropower projects.
SPRA has been a major force in defeating proposals to alter national
policies requiring federal power be sold at cost and made available to
nonprofit consumer-owned electric systems. These policies were enacted
by Congress more than 90 years ago as a means to assure the
benefits of national water resources development are retained by the
public.
SPRA activities have benefited millions of rural and small town electric
consumers in the Southwest region, while providing solid support
for repayment of the federal investment in the power facilities in
a consistent and timely manner. Grassroots support by its membership
has assured the continued flow of federal power to the Southwestern
region on a not-for-profit basis.

There are four Power Marketing Administrations (PMAs) – Bonneville
Power Administration (BPA), Western Area Power Administration
(WAPA), Southwestern Power Administration (SWPA) and Southeastern
Power Administration (SEPA). The PMAs market federally generated
hydropower, with a right of first refusal granted to not-for-profit entities,
including public power systems and rural electric cooperatives.
PMA rates are set to cover all of the costs of generating and transmitting
the electricity, as well as repayment with interest of the federal investment
in these hydro projects. PMA power rates are reviewed annually
and set in accordance with Department of Energy Order RA 6120.2
federal law, including Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944.
Traditionally, all revenues collected from ratepayers, including projected
operation and maintenance (O&M) costs of the dams, were sent
directly to the Treasury with the expectation that Congress would appropriate
the dollars back to the PMAs to repair and maintain these aging
hydro facilities.
As Congressional appropriations continue to dwindle, SPRA members
recognize this growing funding problem as a threat to the reliability of
the federal power system. In 1999, a tri-party funding agreement was
reached between Southwestern, the Corps of Engineers and Jonesboro
City Water and Light, allowing Southwestern’s customers to directly
pay for specific O&M projects deemed essential to maintain the reliability
of Southwestern’s federal energy and power delivery. The Jonesboro
Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was the first of its kind in the nation
becoming the template for success. Our gratitude goes to Mr. Ron
Bowen (now retired from Jonesboro CWL) for taking on this responsibility
and setting the example of “working for the good of the whole.”
This MOA has evolved to The Customer Trust MOA and continues to
allow federal power customers to directly fund Corps O&M and decrease
the need to replace hydro with more expensive thermal energy.
As one of the few providers of cost-based wholesale power, the PMAs
serve as a valuable yardstick against which consumers, regulators and
policymakers can measure the profit margin embedded in the cost of
power from other sources.
By taking a pro-active stand in assuring a healthy federal power system,
SPRA members (Southwestern’s customers) have demonstrated their
commitment to renewable, clean, affordable and competitive electricity.

Southwestern Power Administration
Southwestern was established in 1943 by the Secretary of the Interior as a
Federal Agency that today operates within the Department of Energy as
authorized by Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944.
As one of four Power Marketing Administrations in the United States,
Southwestern markets hydroelectric power in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana,
Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas from 24 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
multipurpose dams with a generating capacity of approximately
2,174 MW.
By law, Southwestern’s power is marketed and delivered to not-for-profit
municipal utilities and rural electric cooperatives. Southwestern has over
one hundred such “preference” customers, and these entities ultimately
serve over 8.2 million end-use customers.
Southwestern operates and maintains 1,380 miles of high-voltage transmission
lines, substations, and a communications system that includes
microwave, VHF radio, and state-of-the-art fiber optics. Southwestern’s
staff works from its headquarters located in Tulsa, Oklahoma and field
offices located in Gore, Oklahoma; Jonesboro, Arkansas; and Springfield,
Missouri. Power scheduling and plant dispatching are conducted on a 24-
hour basis from the Springfield Operations Center.
Annual revenue for Southwestern has averaged approximately $181 million
over the last five years. This revenue is used to pay the cost of operating
and maintaining the generation and transmission facilities and to repay
the principal and interest on the Federal Investment.
Southwestern’s mission is to market and reliably deliver Federal hydroelectric
power with preference to public bodies and cooperatives. This is
accomplished by maximizing the use of Federal assets to repay the Federal
investment and participating with other water resource users in an effort
to balance their diverse interests with power needs within broad parameters
set by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and implementing public
policy.
