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

The proposed Old Geezer Project would be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fox River Lower Appleton Dam in Appleton, 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 in a new concrete conduit 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 west side of the Corps dam; (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 Old Geezer Project would have an estimated average annual generation of about 37,278 megawatts-hours, which would be sold to a local utility.
