The Commission further stated that, [o]nce this rule becomes effective, the requirement to comply with this rule will supersede the conditions in public utilities’ market-based rate authorizations, and failure to comply with the requirements of this rule will subject public utilities to the same consequences they would face for not satisfying the conditions in their rate authorizations, including possible revocation of their authority to make wholesale power sales at market-based rates.[4] 5. Pursuant to these requirements, the Commission has revoked the marketbased rate tariffs of market-based rate sellers that failed to submit their Electric Quarterly Reports.5 6. Sellers must file Electric Quarterly Reports consistent with the procedures set forth in Order Nos. 2001, 768,6 and 770.7 The exact filing dates for Electric Quarterly Reports are prescribed in 18 CFR 35.10b (2019). As noted above, Commission staff’s review of the Electric Quarterly Reports for the period up to the third quarter of 2019 identified thirteen public utilities with marketbased rate authorization that failed to file Electric Quarterly Reports. Commission staff contacted or attempted to contact these entities to remind them of their regulatory obligations. Despite these reminders, the public utilities listed in the caption of this order have not met these obligations. Accordingly, this order notifies these public utilities that their market-based rate authorizations will be revoked unless they comply with the Commission’s requirements within fifteen days of the issuance of this order. 7. In the event that any of the abovecaptioned market-based rate sellers has already filed its Electric Quarterly Reports in compliance with the Commission’s requirements, its inclusion herein is inadvertent. Such market-based rate seller is directed, within fifteen days of the date of issuance of this order, to make a filing with the Commission identifying itself and providing details about its prior filings that establish that it complied with the Commission’s Electric Quarterly Report filing requirements. 3 Order No. 2001, 99 FERC ¶ 61,107 at P 222.
