Yadkin-Pee Dee Relicensing
Yadkin-Pee Dee River Project (Tillery and Blewett Falls Hydroelectric Developments)
Duke Energy Progress owns and operates the Yadkin-Pee Dee River Project, located on the Yadkin-Pee Dee River in central North Carolina.
The project consists of the Tillery Development and the Blewett Falls Development, which have licensed capacities of 84 and 24.6 megawatts (MW) respectively. The Yadkin-Pee Dee River Project (Project No. 2206) is operated under a license issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) which expired on April 30, 2008. Duke Energy Progress filed an application to relicense the project on April 30, 2006. FERC issued the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the project during April 2008. The license application is currently under review by FERC, and Duke Energy is operating the project on an annual renewable license issued by FERC with the same terms and conditions of the original 1958 license until the new license is issued.
