Final Decision – Certification of the Belleville Project (LIHI #193) and Meldahl Project (LIHI #194), Ohio RiverMarch 29, 2023
Monroe Drop Project – Certification Comment Period ExtendedApril 10, 2023
March 30, 2023: The Mother Ann Lee Project, LIHI #24 was issued a new FERC license on August 15, 2022. In accordance with Section 5.3.4 of the 2nd Edition LIHI Handbook, Revision 2.05, issuance of a new license constitutes a “material change” and triggers a mid-term LIHI Certification review. A new Certificate term can be granted if the Project continues to satisfy the LIHI criterion, even if the current term has not yet expired.
This is the first LIHI mid-term review since Revision 2.05 of the Handbook was published in January of 2022. We are using this experience to design a new mid-term application format for projects that require such a review. As such, this preliminary review was conducted without a formal application from the Project owner. The 60-day the public comment period is being opened coincident with publishing of the draft mid-term review report available HERE. All comments will be incorporated into a revised report, posted on the LIHI website, and incorporated into the preliminary decision. Comments must be received by 5 pm Eastern time on May 29, 2023.
