PacifiCorp and the transferees jointly propose to transfer the license to Renewal Corporation and the States of California and Oregon for the purpose of surrendering, decommissioning, and removing the project dams, if approved separately by the Commission. The project includes four developments: J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco No. 2, and Iron Gate. On July 16, 2020, the Commission issued an order approving a partial transfer of the license for the project from PacifiCorp to PacifiCorp and the Renewal Corporation as co-licensees.

In the January 13 filing, PacifiCorp and the Renewal Corporation state that they do not accept their status as co-licensees under the July 16 order. On November 17, 2020, in a separate proceeding, PacifiCorp and the Renewal Corporation filed an amended application to surrender the license and decommission the Lower Klamath Project. Decommissioning activities would include the full removal of the four developments.
