Turners Falls Hydroelectric Project and Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage Project Relicensing
FirstLight Power Resources is licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or the Commission) to operate the Turners Falls Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 1889) and the Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage Project (FERC No. 2485). Both Projects utilize water from the Connecticut River to generate hydroelectric power. The current FERC licenses for both projects expire on April 30, 2018. Every 30-50 years, Licensees are required to relicense their hydroelectric facilities with FERC. By April 30, 2016, two years prior to license expiration, FirstLight is required to file their Final License Applications for both projects.
