SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–732, Electric Rate Schedules and Tariffs: Long-Term Firm Transmission Rights in Organized Electricity Markets. OMB Control No.: 1902–0245. PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–732 information collection requirement with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: 18 CFR part 42 provides the reporting requirements of FERC–732 as they pertain to long-term transmission rights. To implement section 1233 1 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005),2 the Commission requires each transmission organization that is a public utility with one or more organized electricity markets to make available long-term firm transmission rights that satisfy each of the Commission’s guidelines.3 The FERC–732 regulations require that transmission organizations (that are public utilities with one or more organized electricity markets) choose one of two ways to file: • File tariff sheets making long-term firm transmission rights available that are consistent with each of the guidelines established by FERC. • File an explanation describing how their existing tariffs already provide long-term firm transmission rights that are consistent with the guidelines. Additionally, the Commission requires each transmission organization to make its transmission planning and expansion procedures and plans available to the public. FERC–732 enables the Commission to exercise its wholesale electric rate and electric power transmission oversight and enforcement responsibilities in accordance with the FPA, the Department of Energy Organization Act (DOE Act), and EPAct 2005. Type of Respondents: Public utility with one or more organized electricity markets Estimate of Annual Burden: 4 The Commission estimates the total burden and cost 5 for this information collection as follows. 1 16 U.S.C. 824. U.S.C. 824Q. 3 18 CFR 42.1(d). 4 Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. For further explanation of what is included in the information collection burden, refer to 5 CFR 1320.3. 5 FERC staff estimates that industry costs for salary plus benefits are similar to Commission costs. The cost figure is the FY2018 FERC average annual salary plus benefits ($164,820/year or $79/ hour). 26 E:\FR\FM\31JAN1.SGM 31JAN1 691 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 21 / Thursday, January 31, 2019 / Notices FERC–732—ELECTRIC RATE SCHEDULES AND TARIFFS: LONG-TERM FIRM TRANSMISSION RIGHTS IN ORGANIZED ELECTRICITY MARKETS Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Total annual burden hours & total annual cost ($) Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) Public utility with one or more organized electricity markets.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: FERC-732, Electric Rate Schedules and Tariffs: Long-Term 
Firm Transmission Rights in Organized Electricity Markets.
    OMB Control No.: 1902-0245.
    Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC-732 information 
collection requirement with no changes to the current reporting 
requirements.
    Abstract: 18 CFR part 42 provides the reporting requirements of 
FERC-732 as they pertain to long-term transmission rights. To implement 
section 1233 \1\ of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005),\2\ the 
Commission requires each transmission organization that is a public 
utility with one or more organized electricity markets to make 
available long-term firm transmission rights that satisfy each of the 
Commission's guidelines.\3\

    \1\ 16 U.S.C. 824.
    \2\ 6 U.S.C. 824Q.
    \3\ 18 CFR 42.1(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The FERC-732 regulations require that transmission organizations 
(that are public utilities with one or more organized electricity 
markets) choose one of two ways to file:
     File tariff sheets making long-term firm transmission 
rights available that are consistent with each of the guidelines 
established by FERC.
     File an explanation describing how their existing tariffs 
already provide long-term firm transmission rights that are consistent 
with the guidelines.
    Additionally, the Commission requires each transmission 
organization to make its transmission planning and expansion procedures 
and plans available to the public. FERC-732 enables the Commission to 
exercise its wholesale electric rate and electric power transmission 
oversight and enforcement responsibilities in accordance with the FPA, 
the Department of Energy Organization Act (DOE Act), and EPAct 2005.
    Type of Respondents: Public utility with one or more organized 
electricity markets
    Estimate of Annual Burden: \4\ The Commission estimates the total 
burden and cost \5\ for this information collection as follows.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or

    \5\ FERC staff estimates that industry costs for salary plus
