Download as PDF 55670 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 175 / Wednesday, September 9, 2020 / Notices this alternative would be of similar size at full build-out, would use the same net pen design, anchoring design, phased development, and operational plans as the San Diego Site Alternative. Half-Scale Alternative This action alternative would consider an initial projected production of 2.2 million pounds (1,000 metric tons) and a final production of 5.5 million pounds (2,500 metric tons) from 3 to 6 years after the project is constructed and operated. This production level and project spatial extent would be approximately half that described in the San Diego Site Alternative. The anchoring and mooring system for a single submerged grid would use the same engineering design as the full-scale San Diego Site Alternative. Only 1 pen grid containing 2 rows of 7 pens (14 pens total) would be installed. The half-scale alternative would be analyzed for both the San Diego and Long Beach Alternative sites. Action Alternatives Summary Currently, two location alternatives and a half-scale alternative are being considered for detailed analysis in the EIS. The two location alternatives in southern California—San Diego and Long Beach—are considered for the offshore finfish aquaculture site and the landside facilities that would be used to receive, process, and distribute the harvested fish.

(Applicant or Vitol) has applied for authorization to transmit electric energy from the United States to Mexico pursuant to the Federal Power Act. SUMMARY: Comments, protests, or motions to intervene must be submitted on or before October 9, 2020. ADDRESSES: Comments, protests, motions to intervene, or requests for more information should be addressed by electronic mail to Electricity.Exports@hq.doe.gov, or by facsimile to (202) 586–8008. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Energy (DOE) regulates exports of electricity from the United States to a foreign country, pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7151(b) and 42 U.S.C. 7172(f)). Such exports require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 824a(e)). On August 25, 2020, Vitol filed an application with DOE (Application or App.) to transmit electric energy from the United States to Mexico for a term of five years. Vitol states that it ‘‘is a Delaware corporation with its principal place of business in Houston, Texas’’ and that it ‘‘is a wholly-owned, direct subsidiary of Vitol US Holding Co.’’ App. at 4. Vitol adds that it ‘‘does not own any electric generation or transmission facilities, nor does it hold a franchise or service territory for the transmission, distribution, or sale of electric power.’’ Id. at 6. Vitol further states that it ‘‘has purchased, or will purchase, the power that may be exported to Mexico from wholesale generators, electric utilities, and federal power marketing agencies.’’ App. at 6. Vitol contends that any power it purchased for export would be ‘‘surplus to the needs of the selling entities.’’ See id. at 7. Further, ‘‘the proposed exports will not impair or tend to impede the sufficiency of electric power supplies in the United States or the regional coordination of electric utility planning or operations.’’ Id. Vitol also ‘‘agrees to abide by the export limits contained in the relevant [authorizations] of any [approved] transmission facilities,’’ and states that ‘‘[t]he controls that are inherent in any transaction that complies with all [reliability] requirements and the export limits imposed by the Department on the international transmission facilities are sufficient to ensure that exports by Vitol would not impede or tend to impede the coordinated use of DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 55671 transmission facilities’’ under the Federal Power Act. App. at 8. The existing international transmission facilities that would 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. Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to be heard in this proceeding should file a comment or protest to the Application at the address provided above. 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). Any person desiring to become a party to this proceeding should file a motion to intervene at the above address in accordance with FERC Rule 214 (18 CFR 385.214).
