The proposed project would be located on the Ward Cove, Ward Creek, and Connell Lake in Ketchikan Borough, Alaska. RKG owns all of the lands to be occupied by the proposed project and the majority of required infrastructure is in place. No lands of the United States are within the proposed project boundary.
The proposed project would use: (1) The existing Connell Lake Dam, (2) an existing penstock, (3) an existing building would be remodeled to become the powerhouse, (4) a switchyard, and (5) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would have a total installed capacity of 865 kilowatts and an average annual generation of 7.46 gigawatt-hours of power, which RKG would initially utilize onsite and later sell to Ketchikan Public Utility.
