Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2) Order Approving 
Transfer of License and Conforming Amendment

I.

    Northern States Power Company, a Minnesota corporation (NSPM) and 
Nuclear Management Company, LLC (NMC) are holders of Facility Operating 
License No. DPR-42 and DPR-60, which authorize the possession, use, and 
operation of Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant (Prairie Island), 
Units 1 and 2, and Materials License SNM-2506, which authorizes the 
possession, use, and operation of the Prairie Island Independent Spent 
Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI). NSPM is authorized to possess, and 
NMC is authorized to use and operate Prairie Island and the Prairie 
Island ISFSI. The facilities are located at the licensees' site in 
Goodhue County, Minnesota.

    By letter dated April 16, 2008, as supplemented by letter dated 
August 6, 2008, NSPM and NMC requested approval for NSPM to acquire the 
operating authority of the facilities from NMC following approval of 
the proposed license transfer. Subsequently, NSPM will be responsible 
for the operation and maintenance of Prairie Island and the Prairie 
Island ISFSI. NMC will be integrated into the current NSPM 
organization, which would be the sole entity holding both the ownership 
and operating authority of the facilities.
    The applicants also requested approval of conforming license 
amendments that would replace references to NMC in the licenses with 
references to NSPM to reflect the transfer of operating authority under 
the applicable conditions and authorizations included in the Prairie 
Island licenses. The applicants proposed no physical changes to the 
facilities or operational changes. After completion of the proposed 
transfer, NSPM would become the operator, as well as continue to be the 
owner of the facilities.
    Approval of the transfer of the licensed operating authority and 
conforming license amendments are requested by the applicants pursuant 
to Sections 50.80 and 50.90 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal

thereunder, shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through 
transfer of control of the license, unless the Commission shall give 
its consent in writing. Upon review of the information in the 
application and other information before the Commission, and relying 
upon the representations and agreements contained in the application, 
the NRC staff has determined that NSPM is qualified to continue to hold 
the ownership interests in the facilities, and is qualified to acquire 
and hold the operating authority previously held by NMC, and that the 
transfer of the operating interests in the facilities to NSPM described 
in the application is otherwise consistent with applicable provisions 
of law, regulations, and orders issued by the Commission, subject to 
the conditions set forth below. The NRC staff has further found that 
the applications for the proposed license amendments comply with the 
standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended 
(the Act), and the Commission's rules and regulations set forth in 10 
CFR Chapter I; the facilities will operate in conformity with the 
applications, the provisions of the Act, and the rules and regulations 
of the Commission; there is reasonable assurance that the activities 
authorized by the proposed license amendments can be conducted without 
endangering the health and safety of the public and that such 
activities will be conducted in compliance with the Commission's 
regulations; the issuance of the proposed license amendments will not 
be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and 
safety of the public; and the issuance of the proposed amendments will 
be in accordance with 10 CFR Part 51 of the Commission's regulations 
and all applicable requirements have been satisfied.
    The findings set forth above are supported by NRC staff's safety 
evaluation dated the same day as this Order.
