On December 4, 2014, Paul Greyshock 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 Ft. Pierce Pilot Project (Ft. Pierce Project or project) to be located in the Fort Pierce Inlet, near the City of Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County, Florida. 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: A prototype sub-surface propeller generator encased within 6-foot-diameter, 2-foot-wide tube, screened on both ends to protect marine life and protect the mechanism from debris. The generator has a capacity of 40 kilowatts, and will be suspended in 18-foot-deep water near the mouth of the inlet. Anchors on each end of the generator housing will secure it to the inlet floor. A transmission cable will connect the generator to a series of batteries located behind the Manatee Bar and Grill to monitor load and output. The estimated annual generation of the Ft. Pierce Project would be 80.0 megawatt-hours.
