The Reusens facility operates under a license issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Eagle Creek Reusens Hydro, LLC (a subsidiary of Eagle Creek Renewable Energy) is the licensee for the facility. The facility's current license was issued in 1994 and expires in 2024. On February 28, 2019, the licensee submitted documentation to the FERC to initiate the process of re-licensing the Reusens facility.
The licensee is following a FERC process known as the Traditional Licensing Process (TLP). The TLP is one of three approved processes, described on the FERC website here: https://www.ferc.gov/industries/hydropower/gen-info/licensing/licen-pro.asp. Currently, the process is in the first stage: the licensee has filed a notice of intent, preliminary application document, request to use TLP, and newspaper notice. After the FERC approves the use of the TLP, the licensee will schedule a Joint Meeting and Site Visit, following which interested parties will have an opportunity to file written comments on with the FERC and the licensee.
NOI, PAD, and TLP Request
On February 28, 2019, the licensees filed with the FERC a Notice of Intent (NOI) to file an application for a new license, a Pre-Application Document (PAD) for the Reusens project, and a request for approval to use the Traditional Licensing Process (TLP). These documents are available for download below. The filing of the NOI officially initiates the process of relicensing for the Reusens facility. The TLP request specifies which of the three approved processes the licensee is choosing to follow in its relicensing application process. The PAD contains a detailed summary of information about the project for all stakeholders to review at the beginning of the process. Some of the information presented in the PAD is considered Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (CEII) as defined by 18 CFR § 388.113(c). Such information has been removed from the public version of the PAD. In accordance with the FERC's filing guidelines, all CEII is included in a separate volume. In addition, some of
the information presented in the PAD contains confidential financial information as defined by 18 CFR §388.112, which has been removed from the public version of the PAD and has been filed in accordance with the FERC's filing guidelines as a separate volume.
All filings related to the relicensing process are available from the FERC's eLibrary website: elibrary.ferc.gov. Search for filings by project number: P-2376.
