On March 1, 2013, Sutton Hydroelectric Company, LLC filed an application for a successive preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Sutton Hydroelectric Project (project) to be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sutton Dam, on the Elk River, in Sutton, Braxton County, West Virginia. 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 utilize the existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Sutton Dam and would consist of: (1) A proposed powerhouse containing three generating units with a total generating capacity of 9.2 megawatts; (2) a 12-foot-diameter penstock; (3) a proposed 4,000-foot-long, 138-kilovolt transmission line; (4) a tailrace, and (5) appurtenant facilities. The project would have an estimated average annual generation of 36.0 gigawatt-hours.
