On June 2, 2009, Lock + TM Hydro Friends Fund XI, LLC, filed an application, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Mean Green Hydroelectric Project, to be located on the Mississippi River, in Jackson County, Iowa and Jo Daviess County, Illinois.
The proposed Mean Green Project would be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mississippi River Lock and Dam No. 12, near Bellevue, Iowa.
The proposed project would consist of: (1) One new underwater frame module containing nine turbines with a total installed capacity of about 6.4 megawatts which would be installed in the Corps' unused auxiliary lock located adjacent to the Corps' active lock; (2) a new removable lock door; (3) a new switchyard, transformer, and control room which would be located on the Iowa side of the river; (4) a new 1000-foot-long, 36.7 kilovolt transmission line, which would deliver power from the turbines to an existing transformer tie-in bus located at the Corps' lock and dam facilities; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The Mean Green Project would have an estimated average annual generation of about 53,039 megawatts-hours, which would be sold to a local utility.
