On February 22, 2018, EESS–7 filed an application with DOE for renewal of the export authorization contained in Order No. EA–392 for an additional five-year term. In its application, the Applicant states that it ‘‘does not own or control any electric power generation or transmission facilities and does not have a franchised electric power service area.’’ The electric energy that the Applicant proposes to export to Canada 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 EESS–7 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.

Protests should be filed in accordance with Rule 211 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211).
