Take notice that on July 15, 2009, Colstrip Energy Limited Partnership (Colstrip) filed with the Commission an application for recertification of a facility as a qualifying small power production facility.
The facility is a small power production facility located in Rosebud County near Colstrip, Montana. The facility uses and will continue to use waste coal as its primary energy source. Colstrip seeks recertification authorizing a “backup” waste fuel to be used as the primary energy source for the facility in the event of an interruption in the supply of the facility's current, Commission-approved primary energy source.
NorthWestern Corporation interconnects with the facility, purchases the useful electric output of the facility, and supplies any required supplementary, backup and maintenance power required by the facility.
Any person desiring to intervene or to protest this filing must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211, 385.214). Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Any person wishing to become a party must file a notice of intervention or motion to intervene, as appropriate. Such notices, motions, or protests must be filed on or before the comment date. Anyone filing a motion to intervene or protest must serve a copy of that document on the Applicant and all the parties in this proceeding.
The Commission encourages electronic submission of protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the “eFiling” link at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should submit an original and 14 copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426.
