On November 20, 2009, Western published a notice in the Federal Register (74 FR 60256) announcing its Post-2017 remarketing effort for the BCP. This Federal Register notice included a proposal to apply the PMI to the BCP as well as other aspects related to the remarketing of BCP generation capacity and energy after the current long-term contracts expire on September 30, 2017.
Western subsequently held public information forums from December 1-3, 2009, and public comment forums from January 19-21, 2010. As a result of these forums, several requests were made to extend the comment period to allow for further study of the proposals and external developments.
This extension of the January 29 deadline to September 30 provides Western additional time to examine the issues raised in the comments received on the proposed application of the PMI to the BCP and the other Western proposals, and provides all interested parties additional opportunity to consult with Western and comment on the proposals.Start Signature
