Reserves Distribution Clause Triggers for BPA Power Services

The Reserves Distribution Clause (RDC) is an element of the Financial Reserves Policy. It allows the administrator to repurpose financial reserves when certain conditions are met. The primary condition is that both the agency and the business line must exceed their upper days cash thresholds: 90 days cash on hand for the agency and 120 days cash on hand for a business line. Days cash on hand is the number of days a business can continue to operate using its own cash on hand with no new revenue. BPA’s Financial Reserves Policy, has triggered for Power Services based on FY 2021 end-of-year results. The Power RDC amount of approximately $14 million will be applied in FY 2022. The administrator’s preliminary decision is to apply the entire amount toward a power rate reduction. After a comment period, the administrator will make a final decision and BPA will notify customers no later than Dec. 15. BPA is taking public comments on the RDC proposal through Dec. 8, 2021.
