Take notice that on September 12, 2000, Nicole Energy Marketing of Illinois, Inc. (NEMI), tendered for filing a petition for authorization to sell electricity at market-based rates pursuant to FERC Electric Tariff, Original Sheet No. 1, under which NEMI will engage in wholesale electric power and energy transactions as a marketer.
The Commission has granted open-ended market rate authority to power marketers when it has determined that the market and its affiliates do not have, or have adequately mitigated, market power in generation and transmission; cannot engage in anti-competitive practices through preferential affiliate transactions or reciprocal dealing; and cannot otherwise erect barriers to market entry by competing suppliers.
NEMI requests waiver from Commission Regulations, which have been granted to other power marketers. NEMI also requests blanket approval under Part 34 of the Commission's Regulations of future issuances regarding securities and assumptions of liabilities, subject to objection by an interested party.
NEMI requests that the rate schedule be effective 60 days after filing, or the date the Commission issues an order accepting the rate schedule, whichever occurs first.
