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) Eleven 37-foot-long by 15-foot-wide turbine modules, each containing four 125-kilowatt (kW) turbines for a total project capacity of 5,500 kW; (2) two three-phase alternating current (A/C) generators, having a combined maximum power output capacity of 7,500 kW; (3) a 240foot-long, 69-kV transmission line connecting to an existing transmission system (preferred option) or a 110-footlong, 13.2-kV line connecting to an existing distribution system (secondary option); and (4) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the Hamilton Low Dam Hydroelectric Project would be 3,066 megawatt-hours.
