The ADAMS accession number for each document referenced (if it is available in ADAMS) is provided the first time that it is mentioned in this document. Docket No. 50–331 NextEra Energy Duane Arnold, LLC, Duane Arnold Energy Center, Exemption I. Background Duane Arnold Energy Center (DAEC) is a single boiling-water reactor located in Linn County, Iowa. Under Renewed Facility Operating License No. DPR–49, DAEC is owned by NextEra Energy Duane Arnold, LLC (NEDA, the licensee) (70%), Central Iowa Power Cooperative (20%), and Corn Belt Power Cooperative (10%) and is operated by NEDA. This license is subject to the rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission). By letter dated January 18, 2019 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML19023A196), NEDA submitted to the NRC a certification in accordance with Section 50.82(a)(1)(i) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), stating its determination to permanently cease power operations at DAEC in the fourth quarter of 2020. By letter dated March 2, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20062E489), NEDA updated this PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 certification, stating that it plans to permanently cease power operations at DAEC on October 30, 2020. By letter dated April 2, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20094F603), NEDA submitted to the NRC a Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR) and site-specific Decommissioning Cost Estimate (DCE) for DAEC in accordance with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(4)(i). II. Request/Action By letter dated February 25, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20056E054), as supplemented by letter dated May 29, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20153A371), NEDA submitted to the NRC a request for exemption from specific requirements of 10 CFR 50.82(a)(8)(i)(A) and 10 CFR 50.75(h)(1)(iv). The exemption from 10 CFR 50.82(a)(8)(i)(A) and 10 CFR 50.75(h)(1)(iv) would permit NEDA to make withdrawals from the DAEC Decommissioning Trust Fund (DTF) for spent fuel management and site restoration activities in accordance with the DAEC DCE. The exemption from 10 CFR 50.75(h)(1)(iv) would also permit NEDA to make these withdrawals without prior notification of the NRC, similar to withdrawals for decommissioning activities made in accordance with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(8). As part of its exemption request, NEDA provided Table 1, ‘‘Annual SAFSTOR Decommissioning Cost Cash Flow for Duane Arnold Energy Center,’’ that shows the annual DTF cash flow for DAEC while conducting SAFSTOR decommissioning (i.e., deferred dismantling). Table 1 contains the projected withdrawals from the DTF needed to cover the estimated costs of radiological decommissioning, spent fuel management, and site restoration activities as projected as of the date of the exemption request. Subsequent to its exemption request, NEDA provided the DTF balance and cost estimates for these same activities in its letter dated April 2, 2020 for the DAEC PSDAR and in Enclosure 1 to its March 26, 2020 annual report on the status of decommissioning funding for DAEC (ADAMS Accession No. ML20086L916). On May 29, 2020, NEDA supplemented its request and provided, among other things, the most recently available NEDA DAEC DTF balance. The NRC staff considered each of these submittals in its review of the exemption request. The requirements of 10 CFR 50.82(a)(8)(i)(A) restrict the use of DTF withdrawals to expenses for legitimate decommissioning activities consistent with the definition of decommissioning that appears in 10 CFR 50.2.
