SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Exports of electricity from the United States to a foreign country are regulated by the Department of Energy (DOE) pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. §§ 7151(b), 7172(f)) and require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C.§ 824a(e)).

On July 20, 2009, DOE issued Order No. EA-356 to transmit electric energy from the United States to Canada as a power marketer for a five-year term using existing international transmission facilities. That authority expires on July 20, 2014. On March 13, 2014, JPMCCC filed an application with DOE for renewal of the export authority contained in Order No. EA-356 for an additional five-year term.

JPMCCC states that it has no “supply system” of its own on which exports of power could have a reliability or stability impact. All of the electricity exported will be transmitted pursuant to arrangements with utilities that own or operate existing transmission facilities and will be consisted with the terms and conditions contained in the existing Presidential Permits and export authorizations associated with those facilities. The electric energy that JPMCCC proposes to export to Canada would be surplus energy purchased from electric utilities and other suppliers within the United States. The existing international transmission facilities to be utilized by JPMCCC have previously been authorized by Presidential permits issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended, and are appropriate for open access transmission by third parties.

Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to be heard in this proceeding should file a comment or protest to the application at the address provided above. Protests should be filed in accordance with Rule 211 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Rules of Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211). Any person desiring to become a party to these proceedings Start Printed Page 17144should file a motion to intervene at the above address in accordance with FERC Rule 214 (18 CFR 385.214).
