Start Preamble July 27, 2009.

On June 9, 2009, the University of New Hampshire, Center for Ocean Renewable Energy filed an application, pursuant to the FPA, proposing to study the feasibility of the General Sullivan and Little Bay Bridges Tidal Energy Project No. 13503, to be located on the Piscataqua River, in Rockingham and Strafford Counties, New Hampshire.

The proposed project would be located near the General Sullivan and Little Bay bridges and would consist of: (1) A single 10-foot-wide by 35-foot-long test platform suspending a variety of hydrokinetic devices including a Gorlov Helical turbine generating unit into the river; and (2) appurtenant facilities. Project generation would be used to power the test platform, therefore no transmission line is proposed.
