The application sought NRC's consent to the indirect transfer of control of the NRC licenses for NRG South Texas' 44 percent ownership interest in STP, Units 1 and 2, and to the extent required, the Exelon Generation Company facilities' licenses as described in Exelon's January 29, 2009, application and supplemental letter dated March 18, 2009. As described in the application, the indirect transfer of STP would have occurred in connection with Exelon's plan to acquire control of NRG South Texas' parent, NRG Energy, Inc. (NRG), through a tender offer. A Notice of Hearing has not been issued subject to the application. This action relates to application for indirect transfer of control of licenses of STP, Units 1 and 2. The action related to Exelon's application for indirect transfer of Exelon Generation Company's units listed above is addressed in a separate action.

The Commission had previously issued Notice of Consideration of Approval of Application regarding proposed merger of NRG Energy, Inc. and Exelon Corporation published in the Federal Register on July 9, 2009 (74 FR 32967). However, by letter dated July 30, 2009, the applicant withdrew its application.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application dated January 29, 2009, as supplemented by letter dated March 18, 2009, the licensee's letter dated July 30, 2009, which withdrew the application, and the Commission's separate action for Exelon Generation Company's units, which is being published in the Federal Register in parallel with this action.
