The Commission staff believes that the industry’s level and skill set are comparable to FERC, so the FERC 2016 average hourly cost (for salary plus benefits) of $74.50 per hour is used. 3 Requirements are found in 18 CFR Parts: 157, 284, 2, and 380. 4 Requirements are found in 18 CFR Parts: 2.55(b), 157.203(d), 380.15, and 2.55(a).

The proposed project would consist of the following new facilities: (1) An approximately 750-foot-long and 35foot-wide concrete dam; (2) an impoundment with a surface area of 80 acres and a volume of 459.1 acre-feet at a normal water surface elevation of 1,330.0 feet above mean sea level; (3) a concrete spillway; (4) a steel penstock; (5) a three story high concrete, wood and steel powerhouse 120 feet wide by 249 feet long; (6) two turbine-generating units with a total installed capacity of 1,000 kilowatts; (7) a tailrace; (8) an approximately 8-mile-long, 115-kilovolt transmission line from the powerhouse to the Cody Road substation; and (9) appurtenant facilities.
