FERC Grants Expedited Process for Kentucky Hydro Project

(Commonwealth of Kentucky)

Kentucky River Lock and Dam 11 (Commonwealth of Kentucky)

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this week approved the use of a two-year licensing process for a hydropower project at a century-old dam on the Kentucky River.

Free Flow Power Project 92, LLC applied in May to add 5 megawatts of hydropower generation to Kentucky River Lock and Dam 11, built for transportation in 1906.

The company plans to add an adjustable 3.5-foot crest gate above the dam and build a powerhouse holding two generators within the existing lock structure.  New power lines would connect to an existing substation 4.5 miles away near Waco, Ky.

In a bill passed last year, Congress directed FERC to establish a two-year licensing program and develop projects to test the process.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
