The proposed projects would be integral with: (1) The existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Lock & Dam No. 13 comprised of an 1,066-foot-long gated dam section with 3 roller gates and 10 Taintor gates, and a 600 foot-long lock, and; (2) an existing 33-mile-long reservoir extending from River Mile 522 to River Mile 556 at a normal pool elevation of 583.0 feet mean sea level.
The Lock+TM Hydro Friends Fund II, LLC's proposed project would consist of: (1) Eight generating units installed in a new door to be installed in the auxiliary lock with a total capacity of 4,963 kilowatts; and (2) a new 500-foot-long, 4.16-kilovolt transmission line connected to an existing above ground local distribution system. The project would have an estimated average annual generation of 41.3 gigawatt-hours.
