On March 23, 2001, Duke Energy Mohave, LLC (Duke Mohave) filed an application seeking authority to sell firm and non-firm energy, capacity, and ancillary services at market-based rates and to reassign transmission capacity under the terms of its proposed FERC Electric Tariff No. 1. Duke Mohave also sought certain blanket approvals and waivers of the Commission's regulations. In particular, Duke Mohave requested that the Commission grant blanket approval under 18 CFR part 34 of all future issuances of securities and assumptions of liabilities by Duke Mohave. On May 18, 2001, the Commission issued an Order Conditionally Accepting For Filing Market-Based Rate Tariff (Order), in the above-docketed proceeding.
The Commission's May 18, 2001 Order granted the request for blanket approval under Part 34, subject to conditions found in Ordering Paragraphs (D), (E), and (G).
