Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Department of Energy.

ACTION:

Submission for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review; comment request.

SUMMARY:

The Department of Energy (DOE) submitted an information collection request (ICR) to the OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (OMB Control Number 1910-0068).

DOE requests a three-year extension of its collection activities for information from owners of qualified renewable energy generation facilities who apply annually for Renewable Energy Production Incentive (REPI) payments. This ICR seeks information necessary to determine whether an applicant's facility qualifies for these REPI payments by producing the requisite amount of net electricity. The information gathered by the ICR ensures that the government has sufficient information to determine whether public funds are being properly used for these incentive payments.

DATES:

Comments regarding this request to extend the collection of information concerning annual applications from the owners of qualified renewable energy generation facilities must be received on or before January 28, 2008. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the OMB Desk Officer of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible. The Desk Officer may be telephoned at 202-395-4650.
