(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) FERC Issues Order Approving Revised As-built Exhibit F and Exhibit G Drawings re Green Mountain Power's Center Rutland Hydroelectric Project Under P-2445 WASHINGTON, Jan. 15 -- The U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued the text of the following delegated order: Green Mountain Power Project No. 2445-026 ORDER APPROVING REVISED AS-BUILT EXHIBIT F AND EXHIBIT G (Issued January 15, 2014) 1. On December 7, 2012 and September 24, 2013, Green Mountain Power Corporation, licensee for the Center Rutland Hydroelectric Project, FERC No. 2445, filed revised Exhibit G and as-built Exhibit F drawings, respectively, for Commission approval. The project is located on Otter Creek in the town of Rutland, Rutland County, Vermont.
Background 2. The licensee filed revised as-built Exhibit F and Exhibit G drawings pursuant to an Order Amending License that amended the project features to include the addition of a new transmission line and the removal of an existing one. Ordering paragraph (D) required the licensee to file revised Exhibit F and G drawings to reflect the approved changes. The licensee filed a revised Exhibit F drawing on November 13, 2012 and a revised Exhibit G drawing on December 7, 2012. Ordering paragraph (G) of the amendment order requires the licensee to file revised exhibits, after construction, to reflect as-built conditions, as applicable, for Commission approval. The licensee filed a revised Exhibit F drawing on September 24, 2013 to reflect as-built conditions and indicated that the Exhibit G drawing, filed on December 7, 2012, did not require revision.
Review 3. Our review of the revised Exhibits F and G drawings found that they reflect the project features and project boundary as-built, with the new transmission line. In addition, we georeferenced the revised Exhibit G drawing and found it to be in agreement with our current mapping requirements.
4. This order approves the revised as-built Exhibit F and Exhibit G drawings, which conform to the Commission's rules and regulations. In ordering paragraph (B) we are requiring the licensee to file the approved drawings in aperture card and electronic file formats. We are not requiring the licensee to file project boundary data in GIS format since it was previously filed with the Exhibit G drawing.
The Director orders: (A) The following exhibit drawings filed on December 7, 2012 and September 24, 2013, conform to Commission rules and regulations, are approved and are made a part of the license.
