Motion of Complainant Requesting FERC Take Official Notice
Submitted to FERC on October 13, 2023
I am a private citizen who conducts public interest research on the security of the electric grid. I am also the Complainant in this docket.
I request that the Commission take official notice of the updated U.S. Census Department data on U.S. imports of large Chinese transformers attached hereto as Exhibit A. These data reflect the imports of Chinese transformers over 10,000 kVA from January 1, 2006 through August 30, 2023.
From January 1, 2006 through August 30, 2023, the U.S. has imported a total of 432 transformers over 10,000 kVA from China. Of these, 351 exceed 100,000 kVA.
The U.S. continues to import large transformers from China in 2023.
