Marine Renewable Energy Collaborative of New England; Notice of 
Preliminary Permit Application Accepted for Filing and Soliciting 
Comments, Motions To Intervene, and Competing Applications

    On April 20, 2016, the Marine Renewable Energy Collaborative of New 
England filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to 
section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the 
feasibility of the Cape Cod Canal and Bourne Tidal Test Site (Cape Cod 
Canal Test Site or project) to be located on the Cape Cod Canal, near 
the Town of Bourne, in Barnstable County, Massachusetts. The sole 
purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit 
holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A 
preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any 
land-disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters 
owned by others without the owners' permission.
    The proposed project would consist of: (1) A 45-foot-high, 23-foot-
wide support structure; (2) a 25-kilowatt turbine-generator unit; (3) a 
500 to 7,500-foot-long, 13.2-kilovolt (kV) transmission; and (4) 
appurtenant facilities. The estimated average annual generation of the 
project would be 54.7 gigawatt-hours. The project would occupy 
approximately 0.5 acres of federal land under the jurisdiction of the 
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Renewable Energy Collaborative of New England, P.O. Box 479, Marion,
