Take notice that on January 11, 2006, Tucson Electric Power Company (TEP) filed a complaint against El Paso Electric Company (EPE) pursuant to Rule 206 of the Commission's Rules. TEP states that EPE has refused to permit TEP to use transmission rights on certain EPE transmission facilities that were assigned to it in a Tucson-El Paso Power Exchange and Transmission Agreement on file with the Commission (Power Exchange Agreement) for transmission of electricity from the newly-constructed Luna Generating Station near Deming, NM, to the TEP electric system. TEP has asked for Fast Track Processing of the Complaint and for prompt issuance of an order requiring EPE to refrain from disconnecting the Luna Generating Station to the TEP grid and to transmit electricity from TEP's share of the Luna Generating Station to the TEP service territory in accordance with the terms of the Power Exchange Agreement.
