SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice provides an opportunity for the public to comment on proposed changes to the standard technical specifications (STS) after a preliminary assessment and finding by the NRC staff that the agency will likely offer the changes for adoption by licensees. This notice solicits comment on a proposed change to the STS, which if implemented by a licensee will modify the plant-specific TS. The NRC staff will evaluate any comments received for the proposed change to the STS and reconsider the change or announce the availability of the change for adoption by licensees. Licensees opting to apply for this TS change are responsible for reviewing the NRC staff’s SE, referencing the applicable technical justifications, and providing any necessary plant-specific information. The NRC will process and note each amendment application responding to the notice of availability according to applicable NRC rules and procedures. TSTF–500, Revision 2, is applicable to all nuclear power reactors. The Traveler modifies the STS requirements related to DC electrical systems. The NRC staff requests that each licensee applying for the changes proposed in TSTF–500, Revision 2, include in their license amendment request (LAR) letter(s) from battery manufacturer(s) verifying the acceptability of using float current monitoring. The proposed change does not prevent licensees from requesting an alternate approach or proposing changes other than those proposed in TSTF Traveler–500, Revision 2. However, significant deviations from the approach recommended in this notice or the inclusion of additional changes to the license require additional NRC staff review. This may increase the time and resources needed for the review or result in NRC staff rejection of the LAR. Licensees desiring significant deviations or additional changes should instead submit an LAR that does not claim to adopt TSTF Traveler–500, Revision 2.

ACTION: Notice of adoption of the Sixth Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Plan. SUMMARY: The Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act of 1980 (16 U.S.C. 839 et seq.) requires the Council to adopt and periodically review and revise a regional power plan, the Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Plan. The Council first adopted the power and conservation plan in 1983, with significant amendments or complete revisions adopted in 1986, 1991, 1998 and 2004. The Council began a review of the power and conservation plan in December 2007, and in September 2009, the Council released for public review and comment the Draft Northwest Sixth Electric Power and Conservation Plan. During the comment period, the Council held public hearings in each of the four Northwest states, as required by the Northwest Power Act, engaged in consultations about the power and conservation plan with various governments, entities and individuals in the region, and accepted and considered substantial written and oral comments. At the Council’s regularly scheduled public meeting in February 2010 in Portland, Oregon, the Council formally adopted the revised power and conservation plan, called the Sixth Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Plan. The revised power and conservation plan meets the requirements of the Northwest Power Act, which specifies the components the power plan is to have, including an energy conservation program, a recommendation for research and development; a methodology for determining quantifiable environmental costs and benefits; a 20-year demand forecast; a forecast of power resources that the Bonneville Power Administration will need to meet its E:\FR\FM\04MYN1.SGM 04MYN1 23824 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 85 / Tuesday, May 4, 2010 / Notices obligations; and an analysis of reserve and reserve reliability requirements. The power and conservation plan also includes the Council’s Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, developed pursuant to other procedural requirements under the Northwest Power Act. The Council followed the adoption of the power and conservation plan with decisions at public meetings in March and April 2010, also in Portland, Oregon, to approve supporting technical appendices and a Statement of Basis and Purpose and Response to Comments to accompany the final plan. A pre-publication version of the final power and conservation plan is available on the Council’s Web site, at http://www.nwcouncil.org/energy/ powerplan/6/default.htm. A formal version will be published in the near future.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST ELECTRIC POWER AND CONSERVATION PLANNING COUNCIL


Sixth Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Plan

AGENCY: Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Planning 
Council (Northwest Power and Conservation Council; the Council).

ACTION: Notice of adoption of the Sixth Northwest Electric Power and 
Conservation Plan.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation 
Act of 1980 (16 U.S.C. 839 et seq.) requires the Council to adopt and 
periodically review and revise a regional power plan, the Northwest 
Electric Power and Conservation Plan. The Council first adopted the 
power and conservation plan in 1983, with significant amendments or 
complete revisions adopted in 1986, 1991, 1998 and 2004. The Council 
began a review of the power and conservation plan in December 2007, and 
in September 2009, the Council released for public review and comment 
the Draft Northwest Sixth Electric Power and Conservation Plan. During 
the comment period, the Council held public hearings in each of the 
four Northwest states, as required by the Northwest Power Act, engaged 
in consultations about the power and conservation plan with various 
governments, entities and individuals in the region, and accepted and 
considered substantial written and oral comments.
    At the Council's regularly scheduled public meeting in February 
2010 in Portland, Oregon, the Council formally adopted the revised 
power and conservation plan, called the Sixth Northwest Electric Power 
and Conservation Plan. The revised power and conservation plan meets 
the requirements of the Northwest Power Act, which specifies the 
components the power plan is to have, including an energy conservation 
program, a recommendation for research and development; a methodology 
for determining quantifiable environmental costs and benefits; a 20-
year demand forecast; a forecast of power resources that the Bonneville 
Power Administration will need to meet its

[[Page 23824]]

obligations; and an analysis of reserve and reserve reliability 
requirements. The power and conservation plan also includes the 
Council's Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, developed 
pursuant to other procedural requirements under the Northwest Power 
Act. The Council followed the adoption of the power and conservation 
plan with decisions at public meetings in March and April 2010, also in 
Portland, Oregon, to approve supporting technical appendices and a 
Statement of Basis and Purpose and Response to Comments to accompany 
the final plan.
    A pre-publication version of the final power and conservation plan 
is available on the Council's Web site, at http://www.nwcouncil.org/energy/powerplan/6/default.htm. A formal version will be published in 
the near future.

assistance in obtaining a copy of the Sixth Power Plan, please contact 
the Council's central office. The Council's address is 851 SW. Sixth 
Avenue, Suite 1100, Portland, Oregon 97204. The Council's telephone
