verified notice. An executed, unredacted version of
the agreement was submitted to the Board under
seal concurrently with a motion for protective
order. That motion is addressed in a separate
BNSF and its predecessors have
operated trackage rights over the Line
since 1951. See Chi., Burlington &
Quincy R.R.—Trackage Rts., FD 17482
(ICC served Dec. 18, 1951).
The transaction may be consummated
on or after December 9, 2021, the
effective date of the exemption (30 days

As a condition to this exemption, any
employees affected by the acquisition of
the trackage rights will be protected by

If the verified notice contains false or
misleading information, the exemption
is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the
exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d)
may be filed at any time. The filing of
a petition to revoke will not
automatically stay the effectiveness of
the exemption. Petitions for stay must
be filed by December 2, 2021 (at least
seven days before the exemption
becomes effective).
All pleadings, referring to Docket No.
36561, should be filed with the Surface
Transportation Board via e-filing on the

Need For and Use of Information: As
the Balancing Authority of the region,
TVA must ensure the electrical grid is
reliable. With the growth of Distributed
Energy Resources (DER) on the
distribution system, TVA and the Local
Power Companies (LPCs) must work in
tighter coordination to ensure the DER
generation does not impact the
reliability of the bulk electric system. To
support this goal, TVA must understand
the current distribution capabilities of
the LPCs. Examples of capabilities
include but are not limited to customer
analytics, advanced asset management,
advanced AMI, automated switching,
DER monitoring & control, grid planning
and voltage optimization. To ease access
and completion, information will be
submitted online. Once collected, the
information will be reviewed by TVA
staff and consultants to determine each
LPC’s state of and plan for system
modernization and will inform strategic
investment roadmaps and
implementation plans that are being
developed as part of the Regional Grid
Transformation initiative. Summary
level information will be provided to
the participating LPCs to allow them to
gauge where they stand in terms of their
technical capabilities compared to their
peers which could help give them
useful information that informs their
individual priorities and investment
