December 23, 1997.
    Northern/AES Energy LLC (Northern/AES) filed an application to 
engage in the wholesale sale of electric capacity and energy at market-
based rates, and for certain waivers and authorizations. In particular, 
Northern/AES requested that the Commission grant blanket approval under 
18 CFR Part 34 of all future issuances of securities and assumptions of 
liabilities by Northern/AES. On December 23, 1997, the Commission 
issued an Order Conditionally Accepting For filing Proposed Market-
Based Rates (Order), in the above-docketed proceeding.
    The Commission's December 23, 1997 Order granted the request for 
blanket approval under Part 34, subject to the conditions found in 
Ordering Paragraphs (C), (D), and (F):

object within the corporate purposes of Northern/AES, compatible with 
the public interest, and reasonably necessary or appropriate for such 
    (F) The Commission reserves the right to modify this order to 
require a further showing that neither public nor private interests
