FERC issued a certification order yesterday confirming increased generation in the Piney hydroelectric project through efficiency improvement. The project is located on the Clarion River in Clarion County, Pennsylvania.
In its application filed in October 2009, Brookfield stated that it had replaced one of its units (Unit 3 runner) with a more efficient runner which resulted in an increase in energy generation by 368,000 kWh. This amounts to an increase of 0.5% in generation.

After withdrawing its application to add capacity to its Holtwood Project last year, PPL Corporation is now looking to revisit the plan. In a letter filed last Thursday, PPL has requested FERC to accept an application which it states is virtually the same as the one submitted to FERC in December 2007 (and withdrawn in December 2008).
The $440 million price tag to expand the Holtwood hydropower project has forced PPL to withdraw its application filed last year to increase capacity at the existing project.
PPL Corporation had plans to increase the capacity of the existing project by 125 MW.PPL currently has a FERC license that expires in 2014.
The amendment would also have extended the license term for until 2030, in the absence of which PPL will now have to start relicensing process next year.
