Shearwater Design, Inc.; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application 
Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and 
Competing Applications

    On July 3, 2012, Shearwater Design, Inc. filed an application for a 
successive preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal 
Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Homeowner 
Tidal Power Electric Generation Project to be located in the Kennebec 
River, in the Town of Phippsburg, Sagadahoc County, Maine. 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' express permission.
    The proposed project would consist of: (1) 10 hydrokinetic turbine 
units with an estimated total capacity of 100 kilowatts; (2) 
approximately five 200 to 500-foot-long, 220-volt transmission lines 
connected to individual homes; and (3) appurtenant facilities. The 
estimated annual generation of the proposed project would be 150,000
