SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Exports of electricity from the United 
States to a foreign country are regulated by the Department of Energy 
(DOE) pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of 
Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. Sec.  7151(b), 7172(f)) and 
require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 
U.S.C.Sec.  824a(e)).
    On July 20, 2009, DOE issued Order No. EA-356 to transmit electric 
energy from the United States to Canada as a power marketer for a five-
year term using existing international transmission facilities. That 
authority expires on July 20, 2014. On March 13, 2014, JPMCCC filed an 
application with DOE for renewal of the export authority contained in 
Order No. EA-356 for an additional five-year term.
    JPMCCC states that it has no ``supply system'' of its own on which 
exports of power could have a reliability or stability impact. All of 
the electricity exported will be transmitted pursuant to arrangements 
with utilities that own or operate existing transmission facilities and 
will be consisted with the terms and conditions contained in the 
existing Presidential Permits and export authorizations associated with 
those facilities. The electric energy that JPMCCC proposes to export to 
Canada would be surplus energy purchased from electric utilities and 
other suppliers within the United States. The existing international 
transmission facilities to be utilized by JPMCCC have previously been 
authorized by Presidential permits issued pursuant to Executive Order 
10485, as amended, and are appropriate for open access transmission by 
third parties.
    Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to be heard in this 
proceeding should file a comment or protest to the application at the 
address provided above. Protests should be filed in accordance with 
Rule 211 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Rules of 
Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211). Any person desiring to become 
a party to these proceedings

should file a motion to intervene at the above address in accordance 
with FERC Rule 214 (18 CFR 385.214). Five copies of such comments, 
protests, or motions to intervene should be sent to the address 
provided above on or before the date listed above.
    Comments on the JPMCCC application to export electric energy to 
Canada should be clearly marked with OE Docket No. EA-356-A. An 
additional copy is to be provided directly to both Frank Karabetsos,

Canada Corp., Suite 600 Vintage Towers II, 326--11th Ave. SW., Calgary, 
AB, Canada T2R 0C5. A final decision will be made on this application 
after the environmental impacts have been evaluated pursuant to DOE's 
National Environmental Policy Act Implementing Procedures (10 CFR part 
1021) and after a determination is made by DOE that the proposed action 
will not have an adverse impact on the sufficiency of supply or 
reliability of the U.S. electric power supply system.

for public inspection and copying at the address provided above, by
