Calpine Power America—OR, LLC and Calpine Power America—CA, LLC (collectively, “Applicants”) filed an application for market-based rate authority, with accompanying tariffs. The proposed market-based rate tariffs provide for the sale of capacity, energy and ancillary services, resale of transmission rights and for the reassignment of transmission rights. Applicants also requested waiver of various Commission regulations. In particular, Applicants requested that the Commission grant blanket approval under 18 CFR part 34 of all future issuances of securities and assumptions of liability by Applicants.
On February 24, 2003, pursuant to delegated authority, the Director, Division of Tariffs and Market Development—South, granted the request for blanket approval under part 34, subject to the establishment of a period of time for the filing of protests.
Accordingly, any person desiring to be heard or to protest the blanket approval of issuances of securities or assumptions of liability by Applicants should file a motion to intervene or protest 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).
Notice is hereby given that the deadline for filing motions to intervene or protests, as set forth above, is March 26, 2003.
Absent a request to be heard in opposition by the deadline above, Applicants are authorized to issue securities and assume obligations or liabilities as a guarantor, indorser, surety, or otherwise in respect of any security of another person; provided that such issuance or assumption is for some lawful object within the corporate purposes of Applicants, compatible with the public interest, and is reasonably necessary or appropriate for such purposes.
The Commission reserves the right to require a further showing that neither public nor private interests will be adversely affected by continued approval of Applicants' issuances of securities or assumptions of liability.
