as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information 
collection requests a three-year extension, with only changes to the 
number of respondents, of Form NWPA-830G, ``Standard Contract for 
Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and/or High-Level Radioactive Waste,'' 
Appendix G, under OMB Control Number 1901-0260. Form NWPA-830G, 
``Appendix G-Standard Remittance Advice for Payment of Fees (including 
Annex A to Appendix G), which is part of the Standard Contract collects 
information concerning a company's quarterly payments into the Nuclear 
Waste Fund of ongoing fees for spent nuclear fuel disposal. Form NWPA-
830G, is a mandatory form that serves as the source document for 
entries into DOE accounting records to transmit data from purchasers to 
DOE concerning payment of the Spent Nuclear Fuel Disposal Fee into the 
Nuclear Waste Fund. Although the Department of Energy determined that, 
effective May 16, 2014, the Spent Nuclear Fuel Disposal Fee is 0.0 
mills per kWh, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of the General 
Counsel, given the continuing nature of the Department's statutory 
responsibilities regarding spent nuclear fuel, directed EIA to continue 
activities associated with the collection of net electricity generation 
data.

DATES: Comments on this information collection must be received no 
later than October 21, 2021. Written comments and recommendations for 
the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of 
publication of this notice to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain. Find

this Standard Contract. Appendix G and Annex A to Appendix G are 
commonly referred to as Remittance Advice (RA) forms. RA forms must be 
submitted quarterly by generators and owners of spent nuclear fuel and 
high-level radioactive waste of domestic origin who signed the Standard 
Contract. Appendix G is designed to serve as the source document for 
entries into DOE accounting records to transmit data to DOE concerning

high-level waste disposal. Annex A to Appendix G is used to provide 
data on the amount of net electricity generated and sold, upon which 
these fees are based.

    (4a) Changes to Information Collection: The reduction of 80 
annual burden hours for Form NWPA-830G results from the reduction of
