Description of Proceeding: The licensee is in violation of Article 16 of its license, which was granted June 8, 1993 (63 FERC ¶ 62,243). Article 16 states in part: If the Licensee shall abandon or discontinue good faith operation of the project or refuse or neglect to comply with the terms of the license and the lawful orders of the Commission, the Commission will deem it to be the intent of the Licensee to surrender the license. Commission records indicate that the project stopped operating in July 2005. Since that time, the licensee has attempted to sell the project and/or acquire a favorable rate contract to determine if it is economically feasible to generate power at the project. On December 5, 2013, staff sent the licensee a letter requiring either an application to surrender the project or a plan and schedule to restore operation. On February 6, 2014, the licensee filed a response indicating its desire to surrender the project. The filing did not meet the requirements of a surrender application.
