FERC issued a successive preliminary permit for this project on April 18, 2013 after it’s first preliminary permit expired in September 2012.
The proposed project would consist of the following:
(1) up to 8 proposed RISEC kinetic energy-to-electrical energy conversion devices having a total installed capacity of 40 kilowatts;
(2) a transmission line that will either connect (depending on the location of the RISEC devices) directly to the Igiugig Village Council’s diesel power plant or a 1,000-foot-long transmission line interconnecting with the Iguigig Village Council electric distribution system; and
(3) appurtenant facilities.
The proposed project would have an estimated average annual generation of 250 megawatt-hours.
