The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Aug 10, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 applicant proposes to study two alternative closed-loop pumped storage alternatives at the site: One sized to 250 megawatts (MW) and the other to 500 MW. The 500-MW alternative would consist of the following: (1) A new upper reservoir with a surface area of 52 acres and a storage capacity of 2,400 acre-feet at a surface elevation of approximately 8,530 feet above mean sea level (msl) created through construction of a new earth or rockfilled dam; (2) a new lower reservoir with a surface area of 40 acres and a total storage capacity of 2,400 acre-feet at a surface elevation of 6,290 feet msl; (3) 10,600 feet of tunnel and penstock connecting the upper and lower reservoirs; (5) a new underground powerhouse containing three turbinegenerator units; (6) a new 1.5 mile transmission line connecting the powerhouse to a nearby electric grid interconnection, (7) appurtenant facilities. The 500-MW alternative would have an annual generation of 502,717 megawatt-hours (MWh). For the 250-MW alternative, the new upper and lower reservoirs would be sized to have half of the storage of the 500-MW alternative (1,200 acre-feet), reducing the dam size needed to impound the reservoirs. The alternative would require 11,700 feet of tunnel and penstock and have 2 pump-generating units. The 250-MW alternative would require the same transmission line and would have an estimated annual generation of 547,500 MWh. Applicant Contact: Matthew Shapiro, CEO, Gridflex Energy, LLC, 1210 W.
