Start Preamble

On March 17, 2021, the Littoral Power Systems, Inc. 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 Kootznahoo Inlet Tidal Power Project No. 15110-000, to be located on Kootznahoo Inlet and adjacent lands of the City of Angoon, in Hoonah-Angoon Borough, Alaska. 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: (1) A partially buoyant submersed tidal current energy converter with a 3-meter-diameter rotor tethered to an anchor post driven into the seabed in Kootznahoo inlet generating up to 300 kW; (2) a dual electric cable, each with a capacity of 13.2 kV, connecting to an on-land storage system; and (3) an on-land energy storage system in the City of Angoon consisting of individual lithium-ion battery cells. The Kootznahoo Inlet Tidal Power Project does not intend to directly connect to the Angoon electricity system. The capacity of the on-land storage system is 250kW and estimated average annual generation is not yet determined.
