On August 10, 2009, Igiugig Village Council filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Igiugig RISEC Water Power Project (Igiugig Project or project), located on the Kvichak River in the Lake and Peninsula Borough, Alaska. The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any land disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners' express permission.
The proposed project would consist of the following: (1) Up to 12 proposed RISEC kinetic energy-to-electrical energy conversion devices having a total installed capacity of 40 kilowatts; (2) a proposed 3-phase, 480-volt transmission line either 300 feet long or 4,000 feet long (depending on the location of the RISEC devices) to interconnect with the Igiugig Village Council's existing electric distribution system; and (3) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would have an estimated average annual generation of 250 megawatt-hours.
