STATUS: A = Active; I = Inactive.

NOTE 1: Preliminary permits are issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a period effective the first day of the month in which the
        permit is issued, and ending either 36 months from the effective date or the date on which a license application submitted by the permittee has been
        accepted for filing, whichever comes first. The purpose of a preliminary permit is to preserve the right of the permittee to have the first priority in
        applying for a license for the project being studied.

NOTE 2: FERC has established expedited licensing procedures for individual hydrokinetic test projects that are proposed to be: (1) small (less than 5 MW); (2)
        short term (generally, 5 years or less); (3) not located in sensitive areas; (4) removable and able to be shut down on short notice; (5) removed, with the
        site restored, before the end of the license term, unless a new license is issued); and (6) initiated by a draft application in a form sufficient to support
        environmental analysis.
