On July 6, 2009, the City of Morgan City, Louisiana filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Wax Lake Outlet Project to be located on the Wax Lake Outlet in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana.

The proposed project would consist of: (1) 25 proposed 200 kilowatt Underwater Electric Kite generating units having a total installed capacity of 5 megawatts; (2) a 1-mile-long, 138 kilovolt transmission line; and (3) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Wax Lake Outlet Project would have an average annual generation of 43.8 gigawatt-hours.
