SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission is responding to comments on its request for a three-year extension of the information collected under FERC–919 (OMB Control No. 1902– 0234) ‘‘Market Based Rates for Wholesale Sales of Electric Energy, Capacity and Ancillary Services by Public Utilities.’’ Order No. 697 1 was issued by the Commission on June 21, 2007 to modify Subpart H to 18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 35, governing market-based authorization. In Order No. 697, the Commission revised and codified its standards for obtaining and retaining market-based rates for public utilities. Order No. 697 also made minor adjustments to the change in status filing requirements adopted in Order No. 652.2 It added a requirement to include appendices of generation and transmission assets in the form provided in Appendix B of Order No. 697 when reporting a change in status regarding a change that impacts the pertinent assets held by a seller or its affiliates with market-based rate authorization. The market power analyses required by Order No. 697 help to inform the Commission as to whether an entity seeking market-based rate authority lacks market power, and whether rates charged by that entity will be just and reasonable. The updated market power analyses allow the Commission to monitor changes in a seller’s market presence or potential abuses of market power. The use of the Order No. 697 screens and reviews for market power for all companies seeking authority for market-based rates and those who have been charging market based rates results in a consistent authorization and review process. It provides regulatory certainty while ensuring the Commission meets 1 Market-Based Rates for Wholesale Sales of Electric Energy, Capacity and Ancillary Services by Public Utilities, Order No. 697, 72 FR 39,904 (Jul. 20, 2007), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,252 (2007), clarified, 121 FERC ¶ 61,260 (2007), order on reh’g, Order No. 697–A, 73 FR 25832 (May 7, 2008), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,268, Order No. 697–B, 73 FR 79610 (Dec. 30, 2008), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,285 (2008), order on reh’g, Order No. 697–C, 74 FR 30924 (June 29, 2009), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,291 (2009), order on reh’g, Order No. 697–D, 75 FR 14342 (Mar. 25, 2010), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,305 (2010). 2 Reporting Requirement for Changes in Status for Public Utilities with Market-Based Rate Authority, Order No. 652, 70 FR 8253 (Feb. 18, 2005), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,175, order on reh’g, 111 FERC ¶ 61,413 (2005), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,175.
