FERC License: No. 2194
Brookfield White Pine Hydro, LLC, a Brookfield Renewable company, owns and operates the Bar Mills Project, a run-of-river dam located on the Saco River in Hollis, Maine. On November 30, 2020, BWPH notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) of its intention to surrender the license (FERC No. 2194). In balancing operational, environmental, and future engineering concerns, Brookfield White Pine Hydro determined this approach as the most viable solution. Notifying FERC of the intent to surrender the license is the first step in the decommissioning process that includes agency and stakeholder consultation and environmental and public safety analysis.
The Documents page has been reformatted and updated to include a Studies page which has been populated with a list of resource issues and studies to be conducted in 2022 and 2023. BWPH requests that any additional study requests be provided in writing by January 4, 2022. Requests may be submitted to BarMills@kleinschmidtgroup.com.
