SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Exports of electricity from the United 
States to a foreign country are regulated by the Department of Energy

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. 
Sec.  824a(e)).
    On November 7, 2017, DOE received an application from the Applicant 
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. The Applicant will register with 
the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to make sells in 
Mexico, and will also be applying with the Federal Energy Regulatory 
Commission (FERC) for authorization to sell energy at wholesale market-
based rates in the U.S.
    In its application, the Applicant 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 the 
Applicant 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 the Applicant's application 
to export electric energy to Mexico should be clearly marked with OE 
Docket No. EA-442. An additional copy is to be provided to Brooksany 
Barrowes, Baker Botts L.L.P., 1299 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 
20004.
    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 website at http://energy.gov/node/11845, or by
