Because of delays in handling conventional mail, it is recommended that documents be transmitted by overnight mail, by electronic mail to Electricity.Exports@ hq.doe.gov, or by facsimile to 202–586– 8008. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Exports of electricity from the United States to a foreign country are regulated by the Department of Energy (DOE) pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7151(b), 7172(f)) and require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 824a(e)). On August 26, 2016, DOE received an application from REP for authority to transmit electric energy from the United States to Mexico as a power marketer for a five-year term using existing international transmission facilities. REP will register as a power marketer with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) in order to purchase power at wholesale within the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, Inc. (ERCOT) for export into Mexico. In its application, REP states that it does not own or control any electric generation or transmission facilities, and it does not have a franchised service area. The electric energy that REP proposes to export to Mexico would be surplus energy purchased from third parties such as electric utilities and Federal power marketing agencies pursuant to voluntary agreements. The existing international transmission facilities to be utilized by the Applicant have previously been authorized by Presidential Permits issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended, and are appropriate for open access transmission by third parties. PROCEDURAL MATTERS: Any person desiring to be heard in this proceeding should file a comment or protest to the application at the address provided above. Protests should be filed in accordance with Rule 211 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Rules of Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211). Any person desiring to become a party to these proceedings should file a motion to intervene at the above address in accordance with FERC Rule 214 (18 CFR 385.214). Five copies of such comments, protests, or motions to intervene should be sent to the address provided above on or before the date listed above. Comments and other filings concerning REP’s application to export electric energy to Mexico should be clearly marked with OE Docket No. EA– VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:40 Sep 09, 2016 Jkt 238001 426. An additional copy is to be provided to William D. DeGrandis, Paul Hastings LLP, 875 15th Street NW., Washington, DC 20005. A final decision will be made on this application after the environmental impacts have been evaluated pursuant to DOE’s National Environmental Policy Act Implementing Procedures (10 CFR part 1021) and after a determination is made by DOE that the proposed action will not have an adverse impact on the sufficiency of supply or reliability of the U.S. electric power supply system. Copies of this application will be made available, upon request, for public inspection and copying at the address provided above, by accessing the program Web site at http://energy.gov/ node/11845, or by emailing Angela Troy at Angela.Troy@hq.doe.gov.
