Exelon Nuclear Texas Holdings, LLC; Notice of Receipt and 
Availability of Application for an Early Site Permit

    On March 25, 2010, Exelon Nuclear Texas Holdings, LLC filed with 
the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) pursuant 
to section 103 of the Atomic Energy Act and Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR) part 52, ``Licenses, Certifications, and 
Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants,'' an application for an early site 
permit (ESP) for the Victoria County Station Site (VCS) located in 
Victoria County, Texas.
    An applicant may seek an ESP in accordance with Subpart A of 10 CFR 
part 52 separate from the filing of an application for a construction 
permit (CP) or combined license (COL) for a nuclear power facility. The 
ESP process allows resolution of issues relating to siting. At any time 
during the period of an ESP (up to 20 years), the permit holder may 
reference the permit in an application for a CP or COL.
    Subsequent Federal Register notices will address the acceptability 
of the tendered ESP application for docketing and provisions for 
participation of the public in the ESP review process.
    A copy of the application is available for public inspection at the 
Commission's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint 
North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (First Floor), 
Rockville, Maryland, and via the Agencywide Documents Access and 
Management System (ADAMS) Public Electronic Reading Room on the 
Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. 
The ADAMS accession number is ML101110201. Future publicly available 
documents related to the application will also be posted in ADAMS. 
Persons who do not have access to ADAMS, or who encounter problems in 
accessing the documents located in ADAMS, should contact the NRC PDR 
staff by telephone at 1-800-397-4209 or 301-415-4737, or by e-mail to 
[email protected]. The application is also available at http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/esp.html.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 21st day of April 2010.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Janelle B. Jessie,
Project Manager, ESBWR/ABWR Projects Branch 1, Division of New Reactor 
Licensing, Office of New Reactor.
