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 October 1, 1997, FE issued Order No. EA-153 authorizing Citizens Power Sales, LLC (Citizens) to transmit electric energy from the United States to Canada as a power marketer. On January 11, 2000, in Order No. EA-153-A, FE renewed Citizens' authorization to export electric energy to Canada for a five year term that will expire on January 11, 2005. On October 26, 2000, Edison Mission Marketing & Trading, Inc. (EMMT) notified FE that Citizens merged with and into EMMT effective September 1, 2000.

On November 17, 2004, EMMT filed an application with FE for renewal of the export authority contained in Order No. EA-153-A for an additional five-year term. EMMT proposes to export electric energy to Canada and to arrange for the delivery of those exports over the international transmission facilities owned by Basin Electric Power Cooperative, Bonneville Power Administration, Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative, International Transmission Company, Joint Owners of the Highgate Project, Long Sault, Inc., Maine Electric Power Company, Maine Public Service Company, Minnesota Power, Inc., Minnkota Power Cooperative, New York Power Authority, Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, Northern States Power, Vermont Electric Company and Vermont Electric Transmission Company.

The construction of each of the international transmission facilities to be utilized by EMMT, as more fully described in the application, has previously been authorized by a Presidential permit issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended.
