Start Preamble April 20, 2010.

Notice is hereby given that a new docket prefix “LA” has been established for `Land Acquisition Reports' (LA Reports) filed by market-based utilities on a quarterly basis, pursuant to Order No. 697-C.[1]

In that Order, the Commission required that all market-based rate sellers must report on a quarterly basis the acquisition of control of a site or sites for new generation capacity development for which site control has been demonstrated in the interconnection process and for which the potential number of megawatts that are reasonably commercially feasible on the site or sites for new generation capacity development is equal to 100 megawatts or more. If a Seller elects to make a monetary deposit so that it may demonstrate site control at a later time in the interconnection process, the monetary deposit will trigger the quarterly reporting requirement instead of the demonstration of site control. A notification of change in status that is submitted to report the acquisition of control of a site or sites for new generation capacity development must include:

(1) The number of sites acquired;

(2) The relevant geographic market in which the sites are located; and

(3) The maximum potential number of megawatts (MW) that are reasonably commercially feasible on the sites reported.

Each LA Report will now receive a new prefix “LA” as part of its designated docket number and will be enumerated quarterly so that the first quarterly filing received will be filed under LA10-1-000, the second quarterly filing will be filed under LA10-2-000 and so on. Accordingly, each quarter and year the LA docket number will change and the Commission will no longer sub-docket these reports under the formerly used “ER” docket prefixes that were used previously for these reports.

For 2010 filings, the docket numbers will appear as follows:

Docket No.Periods coveringDate filed
LA10-1-000First quarter of calendar year 2010Filed in April 2010 for January-March 2010.
