(September 10, 2019)

On March 6, 2019, Lock+TM Hydro Friends Fund XXVII, LLC, filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Cowanesque Dam Hydropower Project to be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Cowanesque Dam on the Cowanesque River in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. 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 new 30-foot-long, 30-foot-wide, 160-foot-high Large Frame Module; (2) two turbine-generator units with a total rated capacity of 0.85 megawatt; (3) a new 4-foot-long, 4-foot-wide, 3-foot-high pad-mounted transformer; (4) a new 200-foot-long, 13-kilovolt transmission line connecting the new transformer to an existing distribution line; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would have an annual generation of 3,700 megawatt-hours.
