Dominion Energy South Carolina, Inc. (DESC) has started their multi-year relicensing process for the Stevens Creek Hydroelectric Project (Project). This is a federally mandated process that is governed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and has the ultimate goal of obtaining a new operating license for the Project. This new license will dictate Project operations and associated Project resource management for the next 40 to 50 years.
FERC requires DESC to collaborate and consult with stakeholders, including federal, state, and local resource agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other interested parties throughout the entire multi-year relicensing process. DESC and stakeholders will work together to address operational, economic, and environmental issues associated with the Project. DESC’s ultimate goal is to receive a new FERC operating license that satisfies the entire relicensing team and appropriately addresses the concerns of all stakeholders.
DESC welcomes you to the Stevens Creek Relicensing website and hopes that the site serves as a helpful and informative public resource throughout relicensing. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit the Contact Us page.
