Minnesota Public Utilities Commission
Department of Commerce – Energy Environmental Review & Analysis
When a permittee requests a site permit transfer, its petition must include the name and description of the person to whom the permit is being transferred, the reason for the transfer and the requested date of the transfer. The permittee must provide notice to those identified as interested in the matter. The person to whom the permit is proposed to be transferred must provide the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (Commission) whatever information the Commission requires in order to determine whether the new permittee can comply with the conditions contained in the permit. The Commission shall approve the transfer if it determines that the new permittee will comply with the conditions of the permit. The Commission may hold a public meeting to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the transfer request prior to making a decision.
