The FERC–919 collection is necessary to ensure that market-based rates charged by public utilities are just and reasonable as mandated by Federal Power Act (FPA) sections 205 and 206. Section 205 of the FPA requires just and reasonable rates and charges. Section 206 allows the Commission to revoke a seller’s market-based rate authorization if it determines that the seller may have gained market power since it was originally granted market-based rate authorization by the Commission. FERC-919, as stated in 18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 35, Subpart H, the Commission codifies market-based rate standards for generating electric utilities for use in the Commission’s determination of whether a wholesale seller of electric energy, capacity, or ancillary services qualify for market-based rate authority. Subpart H mandates that sellers submit market power analyses and related filings. Market power analyses must address both horizontal and vertical market power.

The large increase is due to the addition of the burden that was previously recorded in 919A (1902-0317) and is being moved into the FERC 919 collection. The estimates from the category 1 and category 2 ongoing estimates did not change from the estimates in Order 860 (RM16-17-000). The carryover for category 1 and 2 total 1,833 responses and 6,968 hours, which makes up for most of the increase in responses. Additionally, since the issuance of 860, the Commission has identified 440 responses from upstream affiliates, which adds 440 responses and 20,240 hours, which makes up most of the increase in burden hours. This carryover burden will temporarily overlap with the burden in 919A until OMB issues a decision on FERC 919. At that time, staff anticipates discontinuance of the 919A collection, which will eliminate the burden recorded in the temporary collection.
