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 (PAD), request to use TLP, and newspaper notice; the FERC has approved the use of the TLP; and the licensee has conducted a Joint Agency Meeting (JAM) and Site Visit. The PAD and JAM presentation are available for download below. Interested parties have an opportunity to file written comments and study requests with the FERC and the licensee until July 22, 2019.
