Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Docket No. ER97-4257-000]

Mid-Power Service Corporation; Notice of Issuance of Order

October 9, 1997.
    Mid-Power Service Corporation (Mid-Power) submitted for filing a 
rate schedule under which Mid-Power will engage in wholesale electric 
power and energy transactions as a marketer. Mid-Power also requested 
waiver of various Commission regulations. In particular, Mid-Power 
requested that the Commission grant blanket approval under 18 CFR Part 
34 of all future issuances of securities and assumptions of liability 
by Mid-Power.
    On September 30, 1997, pursuant to delegated authority, the 
Director, Division of Rate Applications, Office of Electric Power 
Regulation, granted requests for blanket approval under Part 34, 
subject to the following:
    Within thirty days of the date of the order, any person desiring to 
be heard or to protest the blanket approval of issuances of securities 
or assumptions of liability by Mid-Power should file a motion to 
intervene or protest with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 
First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, in accordance with Rules 211 
and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 
385.211 and 385.214).
    Absent a request for hearing within this period, Mid-Power is 
authorized to issue securities and assume obligations or liabilities as 
a guarantor, indorser, surety, or otherwise in respect of any security 
of another person; provided that such issuance or assumption is for 
some lawful object within the corporate purposes of the applicant, and 
compatible with the public interest, and is reasonably necessary or 
appropriate for such purposes.
    The Commission reserves the right to require a further showing that 
neither public nor private interests will be adversely affected by 
continued approval of Mid-Power's issuances of securities or 
assumptions of liability.
    Notice is hereby given that the deadline for filing motions to 
intervene or protests, as set forth above, is October 30, 1997. Copies 
of the full text of the order are available from the Commission's 
Public Reference Branch, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426.
