CODIFICATION

The source of most sections of this chapter is the Revised

Statutes enacted in 1873 and other early statutes. The Revised

Statutes can no longer apply to contiguous territory because no

such territory now exists. As to noncontiguous territory, Guam,

Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands each has its own organic act,

providing a complete system of government, legislative, executive,

and judicial. The Canal Zone has its own code of laws. The

independence of the Philippine Islands was recognized by Proc. No.

2695, eff. July 4, 1946, set out as a note under section 1394 of

Title 22, Foreign Relations and Intercourse. The other possessions,

such as Samoa, are covered by special provisions set out elsewhere

in this title.

Areas"

-STATUTE-

In order to minimize the burden caused by existing application

and reporting procedures for certain grant-in-aid programs

available to the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Trust

Territory of the Pacific Islands, and the Government of the

Northern Mariana Islands (hereafter referred to as "Insular Areas")

it is declared to be the policy of the Congress, notwithstanding

any provision of law to the contrary, that:

(a) Any department or agency of the Government of the United

States which administers any Act of Congress which specifically

provides for making grants to any Insular Area under which payments

received may be used by such Insular Area only for certain

specified purposes (other than direct payments to classes of

individuals) may, acting through appropriate administrative

authorities of such department or agency, consolidate any or all

grants made to such area for any fiscal year or years.

(b) Any consolidated grant for any insular area shall not be less

than the sum of all grants which such area would otherwise be

entitled to receive for such year.

(c) The funds received under a consolidated grant shall be

expended in furtherance of the programs and purposes authorized for

any of the grants which are being consolidated, which are

authorized under any of the Acts administered by the department or

agency making the grant, and which would be applicable to grants

for such programs and purposes in the absence of the consolidation,

but the Insular Areas shall determine the proportion of the funds

granted which shall be allocated to such programs and purposes.

(d) Each department or agency making grants-in-aid shall, by

regulations published in the Federal Register, provide the method

by which any Insular Area may submit (i) a single application for a

consolidated grant for any fiscal year period, but not more than

one such application for a consolidated grant shall be required by

any department or agency unless notice of such requirement is

transmitted to the appropriate committees of the United States

Congress together with a complete explanation of the necessity for

requiring such additional applications and (ii) a single report to

such department or agency with respect to each such consolidated

grant: Provided, That nothing in this paragraph shall preclude such

department or agency from providing adequate procedures for

accounting, auditing, evaluating, and reviewing any programs or

activities receiving benefits from any consolidated grant. The

administering authority of any department or agency, in its

discretion, may (i) waive any requirement for matching funds

otherwise required by law to be provided by the Insular Area

involved and (ii) waive the requirement that any Insular Area

submit an application or report in writing with respect to any

consolidated grant.

CHAPTER 10 - TERRITORIAL PROVISIONS OF A GENERAL NATURE

-HEAD-

Sec. 1492. Energy resources of Caribbean and Pacific insular areas

-STATUTE-

(a) Congressional findings

The Congress finds that -

(1) the Caribbean and Pacific insular areas of Puerto Rico, the

Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana

Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall

Islands, and Palau are virtually completely dependent on imported

sources of energy;

(2) the dependence of such areas on imported sources of energy

coupled with the increasing cost and the uncertain availability

and supply of such sources of energy will continue to frustrate

the political, social, and economic development of such areas by

placing increasingly severe fiscal burdens on the local

governments of these areas;

(3) these insular areas are endowed with a variety of renewable

sources of energy which, if developed, would alleviate their

dependence on imported sources of energy, relieve the fiscal

burden on local governments imposed by the costs of imported

fuel, and strengthen the base for political, social, and economic

development;

(4) appropriate technologies are presently available to develop

the renewable energy resources of these insular areas but that

comprehensive energy plans have not been adequately developed to

meet the energy demands of these areas from renewable energy

resources.

(b) Congressional declaration of policy

The Congress declares that it is the policy of the Federal

Government to -

(1) develop the renewable energy resources of the Caribbean and

Pacific insular areas of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam,

American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated

States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, and Palau; and

(2) to assist other insular areas in the Caribbean and Pacific

Basin in the development of their renewable energy resources.

(c) Comprehensive energy plan

The Secretary of Energy or any administrative official who may

succeed him shall prepare a comprehensive energy plan with emphasis

on indigenous renewable sources of energy for Puerto Rico, the

Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands,

the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and Palau.

The plan shall be prepared with the approval of the Secretary of

the Interior and in cooperation with the chief executive officer of

each insular area by -

(1) surveying existing sources and uses of energy;

(2) estimating future energy needs to the year 2020, giving due

consideration to a range of economic development possibilities;

(3) assessing, in depth, the availability and potential for

development of indigenous energy sources, including solar, wind,

hydropower, ocean current and tidal, biogas, biofuel, geothermal

and ocean thermal energy conversion;

(4) assessing the mix of energy sources (including fossil

fuels) and identifying those technologies that are needed to meet

the projected demands for energy; and

(5) drafting long-term energy plans for such insular areas with

the objective of minimizing their reliance on energy imports and

making maximum use of their indigenous energy resources.

(d) Demonstration of cost effective renewable energy technologies

The Secretary of Energy or any administrative official who may

succeed him, with the approval of the Secretary of the Interior, as

part of the comprehensive energy planning may demonstrate those

indigenous renewable energy technologies which are determined to be

most cost effective through the use of existing programs and may

implement any projects or programs contained in recommendations of

the plan.

(e) Submission of comprehensive energy plan to Congress

Within two years from December 24, 1980, the Secretary of Energy

or any administrative official who may succeed him shall submit the

comprehensive energy plan for each insular area to the Congress.

(f) Authorization of appropriations

There are hereby authorized to be appropriated such sums as may

be necessary to carry out the purposes of this section.

(g) Financial assistance

(1) The Secretary of Energy may grant financial assistance, not

to exceed $2,000,000 annually, to insular area governments or

private sector persons working in cooperation with insular area

governments to carry out projects to evaluate the feasibility of,

develop options for, and encourage the adoption of energy

efficiency and renewable energy measures which reduce the

dependency of the insular areas on imported fuels, improve the

quality of the environment, and promote development in the insular

areas.

(2) Any applicant for financial assistance under this subsection

must evidence coordination and cooperation with, and support from,

the affected local energy institutions.

(3) In determining the amount of financial assistance to be

provided for a proposed project, the Secretary shall consider -

(A) whether the measure will reduce the relative dependence of

the insular area on imported fuels;

(B) the ease and costs of operation and maintenance of any

facilities contemplated as a part of the project;

(C) whether the project will rely on the use of conservation

measures or indigenous, renewable energy resources that were

identified in the 1982 Territorial Energy Assessment or that are

identified by the Secretary as consistent with the purposes of

this subsection;

(D) whether the measure will contribute significantly to

development and the quality of the environment in the insular

area; and

(E) any other factors which the Secretary may determine to be

relevant to a particular project.

(4) Notwithstanding the requirements of section 1469a(d) of this

title, the Secretary shall require at least 20 percent of the costs

of any project under this subsection to be provided from

non-Federal sources. Such cost sharing may be in the form of

in-kind services, donated equipment, or any combination thereof.

(5) For the purposes of this subsection -

(A) the term "insular area" means American Samoa, the

Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of

Puerto Rico, the Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, the

Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the

Virgin Islands; and

(B) the term "1982 Territorial Energy Assessment" means the

comprehensive energy plan prepared by the Secretary of Energy

pursuant to subsection (c) of this section.
