SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission uses the information collected under the requirements of FERC–598, ‘‘Self Certification for Entities Seeking Exempt Wholesale Generator or Foreign Utility Company Status’’ (OMB Control No. 1902–0166), to implement the statutory provisions of Title XII, subchapter F of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005).1 EPAct 2005 repealed the Public Utility Holding Company Act (PUHCA) of 1935 in its entirety, including section 32. This repeal enabled the Commission to exempt wholesale generators from PUHCA 1935 on a case-by-case basis. The Commission amended its regulations (in Order No. 667 2) to add procedures for self-certification by 1 Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005) (codified at 42 U.S.C. 16451, et seq.) 2 Repeal of the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935 and Enactment of the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 2005, 70 FR. 75,592 (2005), FERC Statutes and Regulations ¶ 31,197 (2005) Order on reh’g, 71 FR 28,446 (2006), FERC Statutes and Regulations ¶ 31,213 (2006), order on reh’g, 71 FR 42,750 (2006), FERC Statutes and Regulations ¶ 31,224 (2006), order on reh’g, FERC ¶ 61,133 (2007). PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 97 entities seeking exempt wholesale generator (EWG) and foreign utility company (FUCO) status. Moreover, Order No. 667 implemented the repeal of PUHCA 1935 and the supplementary enactment of PUHCA 2005. This selfcertification is similar to the process available to entities that seek qualifying facility status. An EWG is a ‘‘person engaged directly, or indirectly through one or more affiliates * * *, and exclusively in the business of owning or operating, or both owning and operating, all or part of one or more eligible facilities and selling electric energy at wholesale.’’ 3 A FUCO is a company that ‘‘owns or operates facilities that are not located in any state and that are used for the generation, transmission, or distribution of electric energy for sale or the distribution at retail of natural or manufactured gas for heat, light, or power, if such company: (1) Derives no part of its income, directly or indirectly, from the generation, transmission, or distribution of electric energy for sale or the distribution at retail of natural or manufactured gas for heat, light, or power, within the United States; and (2) neither the company nor any of its subsidiary companies is a public-utility company operating in the United States.’’ 4 An exempt EWG or FUCO or its representative may file with the Commission a notice of self certification demonstrating that it satisfies the definition of exempt wholesale generator or foreign utility company. In the case of EWGs, the person filing a notice of self certification must also file a copy of the notice of self certification with the state regulatory authority of the state in which the facility is located and that person must also represent to the Commission in its submission that it has filed a copy of the notice with the appropriate state regulatory authority.5 A submission of the information is necessary for the Commission to carry out its responsibilities under EPAct 2005.6 The Commission implements its responsibilities through the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 18 Part 366. These filing requirements are mandatory. Action: The Commission is requesting a three-year extension of the current expiration date with no changes to the existing collection. The information filed with the Commission is mandatory. 3 18 CFR 366.1. CFR 366.1. 5 18 CFR 366.7. 6 42 U.S.C. 16451 et seq. 4 18 E:\FR\FM\03JAN1.SGM 03JAN1
