FERC Reinstates School Street License

In a ruling issued yesterday, FERC reinstated the license for School Street project issued in February 2007, thereby giving a serious blow to Green Island Power Authority’s (GIPA’s) plan to get a license for their proposed 100 MW Cohoes Falls project, just downstream of the current School Street site. The project is located on the Mohawk River in Albany and Saratoga Counties, New York.
