The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has permitted the withdrawal of the application dated April 15, 2002, as supplemented by letter dated July 11, 2002, filed by Arizona Public Service Company (APS) and Pinnacle West Energy Corporation (PWE), which had requested approval of the transfer of the Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-41, NPF-51, and NPF-74 for the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (Palo Verde), Units 1, 2, and 3, to the extent held by APS, to PWE, in connection with a proposed restructuring of APS. The application also requested approval, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.90, of proposed conforming amendments. Palo Verde, Units 1, 2, and 3, are located in Maricopa County, Arizona.

However, by letter dated December 23, 2002, APS and PWE withdrew the application.
