On July 6, 2009, Lock + TM Hydro Friends Fund XXVII, LLC, filed an application, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Redd Foxx Hydroelectric Project, to be located on the Fox River, in Winnebago County, Wisconsin.

The proposed Redd Foxx Project would be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fox River Menasha Locks Dam near Menasha, Wisconsin.

The proposed project would consist of: (1) One new underwater frame module containing nine turbines with a total installed capacity of about 4.73 megawatts which would be installed east of the dam in a conduit located adjacent to the Corps' active lock; (2) a new removable lock door; (3) a new switchyard, transformer, and control room; (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 Redd Foxx Project would have an estimated average annual generation of about 37,278 megawatts-hours, which would be sold to a local utility.
