Start Preamble

On June 20, 2014, GreenVolt Hydro, LLC filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Two Girls Creek Hydroelectric Project (project) to be located on Two Girls Creek near Sweet Home in Linn County, Oregon. 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 consist of the following new facilities: (1) A weir with screened intake; (2) a 19,365-foot-long, 30 to 36-inch-diameter high density polyethylene (HDPE) penstock; (3) a 50 feet by 40 feet concrete block powerhouse with a single Pelton turbine/generator unit rated for 5 megawatt at 1,606 feet of net head; (4) a 1,000-foot-long, 60-inch-diameter HDPE tailrace conduit; (5) an underground 7.2-mile-long, 12-kilovolt (kV) transmission line connection to an existing transmission line (the point of interconnection); (6) a 40-feet-wide right of way access road; and (7) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the project would be 36.87 gigawatt-hours.
