Petitioner requests that the Commission issue an order confirming that proposed transaction in connection with an instantaneous sale of energy and renewable energy credits by the Project Companies  to a third-party offtaker, with an instantaneous buy-back of the energy only would not: (1) Violate any of the Commission's anti-manipulation rules, and (2) result in the loss of small power producer qualifying facility status for any of the wind generation facilities owned by Project Companies and would not disqualify the ultimate sale of electric power from the Project Companies to the local utility from being considered an avoided cost sale by a QF pursuant to the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978, as amended (PURPA).
