FirstLight seeks to stop some annual reporting to FERC

FirstLight Connecticut Housatonic has filed a 2021 critical habitats management plan annual report with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and requested to discontinue future annual reporting requirements at the Housatonic River Hydroelectric Project Falls Village.  In the letter, FirstLight said changes to the annual report were discussed with stakeholders over the last two years, but FERC noted that the filing does not provide documentation of consultation with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service.  FERC asked that FirstLight consult with the agencies on the proposal, providing them a month to respond to the request and send the information to FERC.
