FERC issued a pilot-license, valid for 5 years, for this project on Ocotber 19, 2012. The 100-kilowatt (kW) hydrokinetic project would be located on the Tanana River at its confluence with the Delta River, near the town of Delta Junction in Alaska.

The project would consist of the following:
 One pontoon-mounted, 12-foot wide, 16-foot diameter Poncelet undershot water wheel
with a nominal capacity of 100 kW
 A float with a total footprint on the water surface of 34-feet by 19-feet
 Float-to-shore mooring system and electrical power transmission cabling
 Vessel mounted switch gear and appropriate navigational safety appurtenances
 A staging area with two 40-ft storage connexes
FERC released an EA for the proposed project in July 2012 and final license in October 2012.
