Take notice that on March 8, 2002, UtiliCorp United Inc. (UtiliCorp) filed a Petition for Declaratory Order under Section 201 of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA). UtiliCorp requests that the Commission issue a declaratory order finding that UtiliCorp is not primarily engaged in the generation or sale of electric power within the meaning of Section 201 of PURPA and Section 292.206(a) of the Commission's regulations, and is therefore permitted to acquire up to one hundred percent (100%) of the equity interests in qualifying facilities.
Any person desiring to intervene or to protest this filing should file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214). Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Any person wishing to become a party must file a motion to intervene. All such motions or protests should be filed on or before the comment date, and, to the extent applicable, must be served on the applicant and on any other person designated on the official service list.
