A combination of challenges including low water levels on the Mississippi has forced a developer to surrender the permits it held to study the feasibility of hydrokinetic projects on the Mississippi River.
A letter filed before FERC by Free Flow Power on June 17 states “pursuing development of the Projects at this time is not viable.” Free Flow Power, a Massachusetts based company, had been exploring development of hydrokinetic energy projects on the Mississippi River from St. Louis, MO to the Gulf of Mexico.
