The energy to be exported would be delivered to Canada over existing transmission interconnections between the United States and Canada over any facility determined by DOE to be appropriate for third-party use. The electric energy which JPMCCC proposes to export to Canada would be surplus to the needs of the selling entities. JPMCCC has requested an electricity export authorization with a 5-year term.
