Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft Supplemental EIS

Wayne County - The New York State Public Service Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Supplemental EIS on the proposed Case 03-E-1231 Petition of Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation, Constellation Generation Group, LLC, and R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant, LLC for Authority under Public Service Law Section 70 to Transfer by Auction Sale the R.E. Ginna Nuclear Generating Plant and Related Assets and for Related Approvals. GNP and RG&E have entered into agreements with Constellation for the sale of their interests in Ginna Power Plant and have petitioned the Commission for approval of this transaction. Under the provisions of Section 70 of the Public Service Law, this transfer cannot go forward without the approval of the NYS Public Service Commission (PSC). The proposed action is a subsequent action to regulatory policies concerning competition in the electric industry which were adopted by the PSC in Case 94-E-0952. Thus the draft EIS in the current case is supplemental to a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) issued in Case 94-E-0952. The project is located in the Town of Ontario.
