Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 213 / Monday, November 4, 2019 / Notices waiver. 10 CFR 430.27(g). Anker may also submit another petition for waiver from the test procedure for additional basic models that employ a different technology and meet the criteria for test procedure waivers. 10 CFR 430.27(a)(1). DOE notes that it may modify or rescind the waiver at any time upon DOE’s determination that the factual basis underlying the petition for waiver is incorrect, or upon a determination that the results from the alternate test procedure are unrepresentative of the basic model’s true energy consumption characteristics. 10 CFR 430.27(k)(1). Likewise, Anker may request that DOE rescind or modify the waiver if the company discovers an error in the information provided to DOE as part of its petition, determines that the waiver is no longer needed, or for other appropriate reasons. 10 CFR 430.27(k)(2). III. Consultations With Other Agencies In accordance with 10 CFR 430.27(f)(2), DOE consulted with the Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’) staff concerning the Anker petition for waiver. The FTC staff did not have any objections to DOE granting a waiver to Anker for the specified basic model. IV. Order After careful consideration of all the material that was submitted by Anker in this matter, it is ordered that: (1) Anker must, as of the date of publication of this Order in the Federal Register, test and rate the Ankerbranded basic model A2041 adaptive external power supply with the alternate test procedure as set forth in paragraph (2): (2) The alternate test procedure for the Anker basic model referenced in paragraph (1) of this Order is the test procedure for external power supplies prescribed by DOE at 10 CFR part 430, subpart B, appendix Z, except that under section 4(a)(i)(E) and Table 1 of Appendix Z, when testing at the lowest achievable output voltage, ports that meet the IEC 62680–1–2:2017 specification must be tested such that the 100% nameplate loading condition shall be 2 amps (which corresponds to an output power of 10 watts). The 75%, 50%, and 25% loading conditions shall be scaled accordingly and the nameplate output power of such ports, at the lowest output voltage, shall be equal to 10 watts. All other requirements of Appendix Z and DOE’s regulations remain applicable. (3) Representations. Anker may not make representations about the energy efficiency of the basic model listed in paragraph (1) of this Order for VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:48 Nov 01, 2019 Jkt 250001 compliance, marketing, or other purposes unless the basic model has been tested in accordance with the provisions set forth in paragraph (2) and such representations fairly disclose the results of such testing. (4) This waiver shall remain in effect according to the provisions of 10 CFR 430.27. (5) This waiver is issued on the condition that the statements, representations, and documents provided by Anker are valid. If Anker makes any modifications to the controls or configurations of the basic model, the waiver will no longer be valid and Anker will either be required to use the current Federal test method or submit a new application for a test procedure waiver. DOE may rescind or modify this waiver at any time if it determines the factual basis underlying the petition for waiver is incorrect, or the results from the alternate test procedure are unrepresentative of a basic model’s true energy consumption characteristics. 10 CFR 430.27(k)(1). Likewise, Anker may request that DOE rescind or modify the waiver if Anker discovers an error in the information provided to DOE as part of its petition, determines that the waiver is no longer needed, or for other appropriate reasons. 10 CFR 430.27(k)(2). (6) Granting of this waiver does not release Anker from the certification requirements set forth at 10 CFR part 429. Signed in Washington, DC, on October 23, 2019. Alexander N. Fitzsimmons, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

On October 24, 2019, the exemptee filed additional information to reflect a proposed design change to its amendment application. Instead of removing the existing powerhouse, which contains three turbine generating units with a total installed capacity of 315 kilowatts (kW), and constructing a new powerhouse containing a single 475-kW turbine generating unit immediately downstream of the existing intake system, the exemptee now proposes to partially remove the existing powerhouse and to construct a new powerhouse adjacent to the downstream wall of the existing powerhouse. The new powerhouse would contain a single 475-kW turbine generating unit, as originally proposed by the exemptee. Additionally, instead of removing the approximately 400-foot-long existing, buried penstocks (three pipes) and excavating an open tailrace channel along the route of the existing penstocks, the exemptee now proposes to replace the existing penstocks with a single penstock.
