E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2011 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) has made a finding in accordance with Section 105c(2) of the Atomic Energy Act, as amended, that no significant (antitrust) changes in the applicant’s activities or proposed activities have occurred subsequent to the antitrust construction permit review of Unit 2 of the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant (WBN) by the U.S. Attorney General and the Commission. Section 105c(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, provides for an antitrust review of an operating license application, filed before August 8, 2005, if the Commission determines that significant changes in the applicant’s activities or proposed activities have occurred subsequent to the previous construction permit review. The Commission has delegated the authority to make the ‘‘significant change’’ determination to the Director, NRR. Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) application for construction permits and operating licenses for the WBN Units 1 and 2 have been the subject of 4 previous antitrust reviews. In connection with the construction permit review in 1972, the Acting Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) found no antitrust problems that would require a hearing. In subsequent operating license reviews in 1979, 1983 and 1991, the NRC staff found ‘‘no significant changes’’ that would warrant an operating license antitrust review. Based upon an examination of the events since the previous operating license review of TVA’s activities conducted in 1991, the NRC staff has concluded, after consulting with the Department of Justice, that the changes that have occurred since the construction permit review are not of the nature to require a formal antitrust review at the operating license stage of the application. II. Summary of Staff Analysis and Recommendation In reaching this conclusion, the NRC staff considered the structure of the utility industry in the Tennessee Valley and adjacent areas, the events relevant to the construction permit review and the previous operating license reviews for WBN. Due to construction delays at the WBN facility, the staff reviewed TVA’s activities in 1979, 1983, 1990, and again in 2010 to determine whether there have been changes in TVA’s activities since the completion on the construction permit antitrust review in 1972 that would create or maintain a situation inconsistent with the antitrust laws. Several types of changes were identified in each of the earlier post construction permit reviews; however, it was determined that none of the changes resulted from abuse of TVA’s market power. In its review of TVA’s activities in the 2010 operating license review, the staff again found no evidence of changed activity associated with abuse of its market power. In relation to TVA’s customers, TVA projected a capacity shortfall based on previous long-term agreements, with or without the operation of WBN Unit 2, which would be inconsistent with a utility using anticompetitive behavior. In relation to building transmission, rate schedules and capacity additions other than from operation of WBN Unit 2, all of the developments were not atypical of a large utility and did not raise significant antitrust issues. Further, in 1997, TVA reached a settlement agreement that defined the counterparties and arrangements under which TVA can only make exchange power arrangements with other power generating companies consistent with the provisions of the Tennessee Valley Authority Act of 1933, as amended (TVA Act). The region that TVA is allowed to supply and sell power is still dictated by Section 15d(a) of the TVA Act. But, TVA may now only engage in Emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Accession No. ML073130086 ML073130092 ML073380454 ML090700378 ML101400184 ML102160085 ML110691059 ML110550652 ....................................................................... ....................................................................... ....................................................................... ....................................................................... ....................................................................... ....................................................................... ....................................................................... ....................................................................... 17:14 Mar 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 construction of generating capacity or purchase of generating capacity as it needs to supply power demands in its own service area and may not knowingly exchange power if the purchaser is procuring power for the purpose of reselling such power at wholesale to any third party not authorized to exchange power with the TVA. As a result, the NRC staff does not believe that any changed activity attributed to TVA since the 1979 operating license review is ‘‘significant’’ in terms of the Commission’s V.C. Summer decision (see Commission Memorandum and Order CLI–80–28, dated June 30, 1980, at 11 NRC 817). The staff recommended that the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation find that ‘‘no significant changes’’ have occurred in TVA’s activities since the previous antitrust operating license review completed in 1991. III. Finding of No Significant Changes On the basis of the staff’s analysis and recommendation, the Director of NRR has concluded in his decision dated March 21, 2011, that there have been no ‘‘significant changes’’ in the applicant’s activities or proposed activities since the completion of the previous antitrust review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) has 
made a finding in accordance with Section 105c(2) of the Atomic Energy 
Act, as amended, that no significant (antitrust) changes in the 
applicant's activities or proposed activities have occurred subsequent 
to the antitrust construction permit review of Unit 2 of the Watts Bar 
Nuclear Plant (WBN) by the U.S. Attorney General and the Commission.
    Section 105c(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, 
provides for an antitrust review of an operating license application, 
filed before August 8, 2005, if the Commission determines that 
significant changes in the applicant's activities or proposed 
activities have occurred subsequent to the previous construction permit 
review. The Commission has delegated the authority to make the 
``significant change'' determination to the Director, NRR.
    Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) application for construction 
permits and operating licenses for the WBN Units 1 and 2 have been the 
subject of 4 previous antitrust reviews. In connection with the 
construction permit review in 1972, the Acting Assistant Attorney 
General for Antitrust of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) found no 
antitrust problems that would require a hearing. In subsequent 
operating license reviews in 1979, 1983 and 1991, the NRC staff found 
``no significant changes'' that would warrant an operating license 
antitrust review.
    Based upon an examination of the events since the previous 
operating license review of TVA's activities conducted in 1991, the NRC 
staff has concluded, after consulting with the Department of Justice, 
that the changes that have occurred since the construction permit 
review are not of the nature to require a formal antitrust review at 
the operating license stage of the application.

II. Summary of Staff Analysis and Recommendation

    In reaching this conclusion, the NRC staff considered the structure 
of the utility industry in the Tennessee Valley and adjacent areas, the 
events relevant to the construction permit review and the previous 
operating license reviews for WBN. Due to construction delays at the 
WBN facility, the staff reviewed TVA's activities in 1979, 1983, 1990, 
and again in 2010 to determine whether there have been changes in TVA's 
activities since the completion on the construction permit antitrust 
review in 1972 that would create or maintain a situation inconsistent 
with the antitrust laws. Several types of changes were identified in 
each of the earlier post construction permit reviews; however, it was 
determined that none of the changes resulted from abuse of TVA's market 
power.
    In its review of TVA's activities in the 2010 operating license 
review, the staff again found no evidence of changed activity 
associated with abuse of its market power. In relation to TVA's 
customers, TVA projected a capacity shortfall based on previous long-
term agreements, with or without the operation of WBN Unit 2, which 
would be inconsistent with a utility using anticompetitive behavior. In 
relation to building transmission, rate schedules and capacity 
additions other than from operation of WBN Unit 2, all of the 
developments were not atypical of a large utility and did not raise 
significant antitrust issues.
    Further, in 1997, TVA reached a settlement agreement that defined 
the counterparties and arrangements under which TVA can only make 
exchange power arrangements with other power generating companies 
consistent with the provisions of the Tennessee Valley Authority Act of 
1933, as amended (TVA Act). The region that TVA is allowed to supply 
and sell power is still dictated by Section 15d(a) of the TVA Act. But, 
TVA may now only engage in construction of generating capacity or 
purchase of generating capacity as it needs to supply power demands in 
its own service area and may not knowingly exchange power if the 
purchaser is procuring power for the purpose of reselling such power at 
wholesale to any third party not authorized to exchange power with the 
TVA.
    As a result, the NRC staff does not believe that any changed 
activity attributed to TVA since the 1979 operating license review is 
``significant'' in terms of the Commission's V.C. Summer decision (see 
Commission Memorandum and Order CLI-80-28, dated June 30, 1980, at 11 
NRC 817). The staff recommended that the Director of the Office of 
Nuclear Reactor Regulation find that ``no significant changes'' have 
occurred in TVA's activities since the previous antitrust operating 
license review completed in 1991.

III. Finding of No Significant Changes

    On the basis of the staff's analysis and recommendation, the 
Director of NRR has concluded in his decision dated March 21, 2011, 
that there have been no ``significant changes'' in the applicant's 
activities or proposed activities since the completion of the previous 
antitrust review.
