(2) The auction process will be the process adopted by the Commission in Order No. 99-765, except that affiliates of the electric company may participate in the auction as eligible buyers, in which case the auction will be subject to such requirements to assure independent decision making as the Commission may determine.

(4) Notwithstanding section (3) of this rule, the electric company may, at its option, immediately auction all or a portion of generating resources identified by the Commission as exempt from section (3) of this rule. Any such auction will be subject to ORS 757.480 and OAR 860-027-0025.
