The Commission has received two preliminary permit applications deemed filed on February 1, 2011, at 8:30 a.m.,[1] for proposed projects to be located on the Mississippi River, near the town of North Vacherie, in St. James Parish, Louisiana. The applications were filed by FFP Project 17, LLC for Project No. 12865-002, and Northland Power Mississippi River LLC for Project No. 14072-000.

On January 17, 2012, at 9 a.m. (eastern time), the Secretary of the Commission, or her designee, will conduct a random drawing to determine the filing priority of the applicants identified in this notice. The Commission will select among competing permit applications as provided in section 4.37 of its regulations.[2] The priority established by this drawing will be used to determine which applicant, among those with identical filing times, will be considered to have the first-filed application.

The drawing is open to the public and will be held in room 2C, the Commission Meeting Room, located at 888 First St. NE., Washington, DC 20426. A subsequent notice will be issued by the Secretary announcing the results of the drawing.
