SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Exports of electricity from the United States to a foreign country are regulated and require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (FPA)(16 U.S.C. 824a(e)).

On April 14, 1997, the Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) authorized NYSEG to transmit electric energy from the United States to Canada using the international electric transmission facilities owned by Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation and the New York Power Authority.

On September 17, 2002, NYSEG applied to amend its existing export authorization by adding to the list of authorized export points those international transmission facilities owned by Citizens Utilities Company, the Joint Owners of Highgate Project, and Vermont Electric Transmission Company. The construction, operation, maintenance, and connection of each of the international transmission facilities to be utilized by NYSEG, as more fully described in the application, has previously been authorized by a Presidential permit issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended.

Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to become a party to this proceeding or to be heard by filing comments or protests to this application should file a petition to intervene, comment or protest at the address provided above in accordance with §§ 385.211 or 385.214 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211, 385.214). Fifteen copies of each petition and protest should be filed with the DOE on or before the date listed above.

Tigue, Manager, Bulk Power Sales, New York State Electric & Gas Corporation, Corporate Drive, Kirkwood Industrial Park, Post Office Box 5224, Binghamton, New York 13902-5224 and Mr. William J. Cronin, Esq., Rosa Pietanza, Esq., Huber Lawrence & Abell, 605 Third Avenue, 27th Flr, New York, New York 10158.
