I. Introduction

Under section 2.106 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC is providing notice of the issuance of combined license NPF-103 to Virginia Electric and Power Company. Under 10 CFR 50.102(c), the NRC is providing notice of the Commission's Memorandum and Order documenting its final decision on the uncontested hearing, which serves as the ROD in this proceeding. With respect to the application for combined licenses filed by Virginia Electric and Power Company, the NRC finds that the applicable standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, (AEA) and the Commission's regulations have been met. The NRC finds that any required notifications to other agencies or bodies have been duly made and that there is reasonable assurance that the facilities will be constructed and will operate in conformity with the license, the provisions of the AEA, and the Commission's regulations. Furthermore, the NRC finds that Virginia Electric and Power Company is technically and financially qualified to engage in the activities authorized, and that issuance of the licenses will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public. Finally, the NRC has determined that the findings required by subpart A of 10 CFR part 51 have been made.

Accordingly, the combined license was issued on June 2, 2017, and became effective immediately.
