Such exports require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 824a(e)). On April 21, 2015, DOE issued Order EA–405, which authorized DNE to transmit electric energy from the United States to Mexico as a power marketer for a five-year term using existing international transmission facilities appropriate for open access. The authorization expires on April 21, 2020. On March 3, 2020, DNE filed an application (Application or App.) with DOE for renewal of the export authorization contained in Order No. EA–405. DNE states that it ‘‘is a Delaware limited liability company with its principal place of business in Delaware’’ and is ‘‘wholly owned by individual investors’’ App. at 2. The Applicant further states that it ‘‘will purchase the power to be exported from wholesale generators, electric utilities, and power marketing agencies.’’ And that it ‘‘will operate as a power marketer and broker and buy electric power at wholesale in the United States for sale only in Mexico.’’ Id. DNE contends that its proposed exports ‘‘would not impede or tend to impede the coordinated use of transmission facilities within the meaning of [section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act],’’ and that its ‘‘proposed exports will not impair or tend to impede the sufficiency of electric supplies in the United States or the regional coordination of electric utility planning or operations.’’ Id. at 3. 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.

Additional copies are to be provided directly to Jorge Astorga, Del Norte Energy LLC, 4023 Kennett Pike 50027, Wilmington, DE 19807. 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 DOE determines 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.
