i. Deadline for filing comments, protests, and interventions: May 29, 2002.

All documents (original and eight copies) should be filed with: Magalie Roman Salas, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. Comments, protests, and interventions may be filed electronically via the internet in lieu of paper. See 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's web site under the “e-Filing” link.

Please include the noted project numbers on any comments or motions filed.

j. Description of Proposal: The Applicants request approval for transfer of the licenses for Project Nos. 10822, 10823, 11168, and 11547 from Summit Hydropower to Summit Hydro, LLC and of the license for Project No. 11143 from Summit Hydropower to Glen Falls Hydro, LLC, in connection with the proposed reorganization of the licensee.

All five licenses were issued to “Summit Hydropower,” a partnership. However, on March 3, 1993, the partners formed Summit Hydropower, Inc. in place of the partnership, and the corporation then acquired all of the partnership's assets. As the licenses for Project Nos. 11143 and 11168 had been issued prior to March 3, 1993, the transfer applications for those two projects will also be considered requests for after-the-fact approval of the transfers that resulted from the partnership-to-corporation change. The remaining licenses were erroneously issued in the partnership's name after March 3, 1993.

k. Copies of this filing are on file with the Commission and are available for public inspection. This filing may also be viewed on the web at using the “RIMS” link, select “Docket#” and follow the instructions. (Call (202) 208-2222 for assistance).
