Download as PDF 9532 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 37 / Friday, February 24, 2006 / Notices wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Power Act against companies that failed to file.5 6. Commission staff review of the Electric Quarterly Report submittals has identified a number of public utilities that previously had been granted authority to sell power at market-based rates that have failed to file Electric Quarterly Reports through the third quarter of 2005. Commission staff has contacted all non-filing utilities via email to remind them of their regulatory obligations. None of the public utilities listed in the caption of this order has met those obligations.6 Respondent/Last quarter filed Capital Power, Inc.—2005 Quarter 1 Energy Investments Management, Inc.—2005 Quarter 1 New Light Energy, LLC—2005 Quarter 1 TME Energy Services—2005 Quarter 1 Premier Energy Marketing, LLC—2005 Quarter 2 Sprague Energy Corp.—2005 Quarter 2 7. Accordingly, this order notifies these public utilities that their marketbased rate authorizations will be revoked unless they comply with the Commission’s requirements within 15 days of the issuance of this order. 8. In addition, the above-captioned companies’ failure to comply with their Electric Quarterly Report filing requirements provides a basis for the Commission to institute proceedings under section 206 of the FPA. These proceedings will determine appropriate refunds in the event these companies continue to make wholesale power sales at market-based rates. In cases where, as here, the Commission institutes a section 206 investigation on its own motion, section 206(b) of the FPA, as recently amended by section 1285 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005,7 requires the Commission to establish a refund effective date that is no earlier than the date of publication of notice of its initiation of the investigation, but no later than five months subsequent to that date. Thus, we will set the refund effective date as the date of publication of this order in the Federal Register. 9. In the event that any of the abovecaptioned market-based rate sellers has already filed its required Electric Quarterly Reports in compliance with the Commission’s requirements, its inclusion herein is inadvertent. Any 5 See Electric Quarterly Reports, 113 FERC ¶ 61,305 (2005). 6 According to the Commission’s records, the companies subject to this order last filed their Electric Quarterly Reports in the quarters and years shown below: 7 Energy Policy Act of 2005, § 1285, Pub. L. No. 109–58, 119 Stat. 980 (2005). VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:03 Feb 23, 2006 Jkt 208001 such market-based rate seller is directed, within 15 days of the date of issuance of this order, to make a filing with the Commission identifying itself and providing details about its prior filings that establish that it complied with the Commission’s Electric Quarterly Report filing requirements. 10. If any of the above-captioned market-based rate sellers does not wish to continue having market-based rate authority and does not foresee entering into any contracts to sell power at market-based rates, it may file a notice of cancellation with the Commission pursuant to section 205 of the FPA to cancel its market-based rate tariff and end its obligation to submit further Electric Quarterly Reports. The Commission orders: (A) Within 15 days of the date of issuance of this order, each public utility listed in the caption of this order shall file with the Commission all delinquent Electric Quarterly Reports. If a public utility fails to make this filing, the Commission will revoke that public utility’s authority to sell power at market-based rates and terminate its electric market-based rate tariff. The Secretary is hereby directed, upon expiration of the filing deadline in this order, to promptly issue a notice, effective on the date of issuance, listing the public utilities whose tariffs have been revoked for failure to comply with the requirements of this order and the Commission’s Electric Quarterly Report filing requirements. (B) Pursuant to the authority contained in and subject to the jurisdiction conferred upon the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission by section 402(a) of the Department of Energy Organization Act and by the Federal Power Act, particularly section 206 thereof, and pursuant to the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure and the regulations under the Federal Power Act (18 CFR chapter I), the Commission hereby institutes proceedings to determine the appropriate refunds if the abovecaptioned companies continue to make wholesale power sales at market-based rates. (C) The Secretary is hereby directed to publish this order in the Federal Register. By the Commission. Magalie R. Salas, Secretary. [FR Doc.

Midla proposes to abandon in place or by removal approximately the 22.4 miles of inactive mainline extending from Milepost 0.0 at its Desiard compressor station in Ouachita Parish and ending at Milepost 22.4 on the T–1 Mainline in Richland Parish.
