FirstLight is transferring the Housatonic Project license to FirstLight Connecticut Housatonic, a new entity created within the same corporate family. It's part of a corporate reorganization and refinancing.
FirstLight submitted details to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission about the project on the Housatonic River in Fairfield, New Haven, and Litchfield Counties. There are 5 developments: Falls Village, Bulls Bridge, Rocky River, Shepaug, and Stevenson. FirstLight Connecticut Housatonic was formed to develop, transmit and distribute power, and any other business necessary to hold the license for the Project.
FERC has extended the comment period on the transfer of license application for the Housatonic River Hydroelectric Project. Due to the December and January federal government shutdown, the Commission is extending the comment period until February 25th.
