On February 7, 2014, Dynegy Estero Bay Wave Park, LLC (Dynegy) filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the proposed Estero Bay Wave Park Project (project). The proposed project would be developed in a phased approach. First, under a demonstration phase, Dynegy plans to deploy a single approximately 1-megawatt (MW) GWAVE Power Generating Vessel (wave energy converter or WEC). Second, under a potential commercial license, Dynegy plans to deploy 10 to 16 approximately 1-MW WEC's. Third, Dynegy plans to seek authorization to deploy additional WEC's with a total installed capacity of 650 MW. Two or more high voltage submarine cables would transmit power to shore, interconnecting with Pacific Gas and Electric's switchyard facilities at Morro Bay. The requested project boundary comprises approximately 2.73 square nautical miles (1.0-mile-wide by 2.73-miles-long) of coastal waters and lands located along the coast of San Luis Obispo County, California, near the town of Morro Bay.
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 or construction activities or to otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners' express permission.
